The Alabama TV reporter who died of an apparent suicide at the weekend revealed a year ago that he and his family had received death threats after he broke news of the secret 2016 tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Christopher Sign, 45, was found dead in his home in Hoover, just outside Birmingham, on Saturday. 

Police are investigating the father-of-three's death as a suicide but have not released any further information.
