The mainstream media has covered the murder of Seth Rich as nothing more than a robbery gone tragically wrong. Now, however, the media has woken up to the possibility that there may be more to the story. In doing so, they conspiracy theories that have swirled around his death may have been proven correct.
On July 8, 2016, Seth Rich, who worked at the Democratic National Committee, was murdered in a Washington, D.C. neighborhood. His murderer took nothing from him, His wallet, phone, and other belongings were left on him. Since then, conspiracy theories have swirled around the internet that Rich was killed because of his connections to the DNC.
Many believed that Rich may have been connected to the recent hack of the DNC computer system. Most of the theories insist Rich was the Wikileaks informant who leaked DNC material to them. Some wild theories went so far as to implicate Hillary Clinton as having ordered his murder. After his death, Clinton used his murder to call for more gun control. Even Julian Assange alluded that Rich may have been an informant. Wikileaks offered a reward to solve his murder.
Now, those who theorized that Rich was involved with Wikileaks may have been proven correct. Fox 5 in Washington is now reporting that Rich indeed may have been the WIkileaks informant. The private investigator for the Rich family, Ron Wheeler, says he has been told by the DC police that Rich indeed was connected to Wikileaks.
Wheeler, in an on-camera interview with Fox 5 (shown below) says there is evidence the DNC staffer was communicating with Wikileaks. “The police department nor the FBI haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is at the the police department or the FBI…I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ That is very unusual for a murder investigation especially from a police department…I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC. And that’s the information that will come out tomorrow.”
