Seth Rich was fatally shot in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. He was a 27-year-old employee of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The crime was used as a pretext for right-wing conspiracy theories about Rich which were later debunked.
His parents have strongly criticized the conspiracy theories, urging people to stop posting it. The family has accused conspiracy theorists of politicizing his death for political gain, and called posters of the conspiracy theory disgusting.
Confirmation has been received that /u/MeGrimlock4 and /u/Pandas4Bernie are Seth Rich's Reddits and @Panda4Progress and @Pandas4Bernie are his Twitters. The emails and phone numbers are the smoking gun!
The information obtained confirms that Seth Rich was a Bernie supporter and he hated Hillary, Seth Rich was the DNC leaker, and DNC knew about it.
/pol discovered that Seth’s Twitter/Instagram handle is Panda4Progress and that he follows Reddit on Twitter, so he must have a Reddit account.
Sometime last night /u/ niceandtoastyplease put out a call to help search for said Reddit account. They used publicly available information about Seth's interests and hobbies to find his Reddit account soon after, /u/MeGrimlock4.
One of his posts shows how he publicly divulges his email address in one of his posts about a lost dog, seth.c.rich at gmail.com and pol has proof that the other email address in the post belongs to his dad. Further he mentions his friendship with the Owner of Split, who follows Panda4Progress on Twitter. The account was immediately archived and shared here around midnight last night.
Shortly after the revelation, /u/FricasseeingRabbit found a VERY SIMILAR username /u/Pandas4Bernie that has Reddit, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts (Pandas4Bernie2016 on Tumblr). The ties are perfect with the recent evidence that Seth Rich was also behind the Dec 2015 Bernie "hack" of the DNC
DNC knew that Seth was the leaker. /u/RunMeMyMoney also noticed that last month ANDREW THERRIAULT, DNC Data Science Manager from 2014-2016 retweeted a tweet calling a group of pandas an embarrassment and TAGGED SETH RICH's handle Panda4Progress.
