Seth Conrad Rich was born on January 3, 1989, before he met his demise on July 10, 2016. Rich was shot in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The 27-year-old was working for the Democratic National Committee.
One year down the line, there’s still no solid answer on how he was killed in the nation’s capital. The Democratic National Committee staffer was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District's Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery.
Well, very few people subscribe to the botched robbery theory. Online conspiracy theories have linked Rich’s demise to his role as the DNC staffer.
New information, which could potentially prove these theorists right is sprouting up. A private investigator who was hired by the Rich family, suggests that there is tangible evidence on Rich's laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death. The investigator was identified as Rod Wheeler.
Despite the lack of evidence, why have the police authorities in D.C., the lead agency on Rich’s murder insisted that it was a robbery gone bad?
The former D.C. police homicide detective, Wheeler, is running a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder. He said he believes there is a cover-up and the police department has been told to back down from the investigation.
Wheeler also revealed that neither the police department nor the FBI has been cooperating at all. The experienced detective believes that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which he believes is either at the police department or either at the FBI. Wheeler also confirmed that there’s information that links Rich to WikiLeaks.
It’s no surprise that Wheeler gave a shocking revelation on how he was told by a source inside the police department that they couldn’t share any information with him after they were instructed to stand down on the case, which is highly unusual for a murder investigation.
