1998- Jim McDougal

Bill and Hillary Clinton’s convicted Whitewater partner, sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions. McDougal died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He died on March 8, 1998, just prior to another round of testimony before Kenneth Starr’s grand jury. Reports say that when Jim McDougal was taken out of solitary, instead of attempting to defibrillate his heart with equipment on hand at the facility, he was driven over to John Peter Smith hospital. Not the closest hospital to the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center.
