Seth Rich Murder: 3 Odd Things Surrounding DNC Staffer’s Death

Seth Rich Murder: 3 Odd Things Surrounding DNC Staffer’s Death
Seth Rich Facebook

Seth Rich was a DNC Voter Expansion Data Director when he was shot multiple times in the back a block away from his home on July 10, 2016.


Police said that the murder of the DNC staffer involved a robbery gone wrong. But surprisingly, nothing was taken from him; he still had his wallet, watch, and cell phone.

Seth Rich’s murder occurred after WikiLeaks released 20,000 DNC emails, which claims that the DNC was tampering with the primaries to favor Hillary Clinton. The DNC accused Russia and said that they were behind the hack, but WikiLeaks denied such claims by stating it was an “internal” leak, as reported previously by Morning News USA.

Heat Street reported earlier that the DNC staffer was in good position to gather the data. If he was responsible for the leak, his murder could keep other DNC whistleblowers in check. The most interesting part in the ordeal happened after his death. There were rumors that on the morning of his murder, he was on his way to met with FBI agents.

It was said that he was trying to expose election fraud by secretly working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Here are three odd things surrounding his death:

The DNC Staffer Rejected A Ride Home

On the night he was murdered, Rich was at Lou’s City Bar in Columbia Heights. When the bar closed, he walked out to the sidewalk while talking to the manager, according to FOX News.

The manager offered him a ride home, as he knew the DNC staffer very well, and that he would have to walk a mile to his home. However, he declined the offer and planned to go to The Wonderland Ballroom, located a couple blocks down the street.

It was earlier reported that he was heavily intoxicated, although his toxicology report is still not released. A witness at the bar said he had a couple of drinks, which made authorities believe that a two-hour-walk would have worn down the alcohol.

Rich was fatally shot while he was on a call with his girlfriend at 4:20 a.m. The event that occurred after he left Lou’s City Bar or The Wonderland Ballroom remains unclear.

All Valuables Were Intact

Police reached the scene of the crime after gunshots were heard. Police investigators suspected that Seth Rich was a victim of an attempted robbery. The neighborhood was infamous due to such activities.

Shockingly, an apparent glitch was present in the robbery theory, after police discovered his wallet, credit, cards and cellphone on his body. His wristwatch’s band was torn but not broken, as reported by Newsweek.

Wikileaks Offered Bounty

It was reported by Morning News USA that WikiLeaks helped these conspiracy theories come to light. Previously, the organization announced a bounty on Twitter. They said that anyone who has information that can result to a conviction in the DNC staffer’s killing will win a $20,000 reward.

Adding to that, Julian Assange, founder and editor of WikiLeaks, threw hints at the idea that the murdered DNC staffer could be the source who leaked the DNC emails. Assange said that it wasn’t a robbery, as what the police said, because the motive was not yet proven.

He added, “So… I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.”

Assange’s suggestions lit up theories that Hillary Clinton murdered Seth Rich because of heinous political purposes as she became aware that he was the informant.

    “Seth Rich’s murder occurred after WikiLeaks released 20,000 DNC emails.”

    Somebody needs to check their timeline again. It should say ‘before’ instead of ‘after’.

    • John Dallas

      Exactly, he had set up his system to release the link to the data automatically to WikiLeaks in case something happened to him. He had been negotiating compensation with them before his demise. Small sample of the October surprise still to shock at least a few.

  • Tillytalks

    Let’s not forget Shawn Lucas. Still no information on his death.

  • Vepton

    One of many assasinated by the Clinton crime family.

    People turn a blind eye . . . . it’s ridiculous to even suggest that a major mainstream leader could be involved in murder. I mean where is the precedent? Here’s an exercise that might help with an answer: Take one minute and make a list of as many world leaders as you can . . . current, historical, dead, alive . . . doesn’t matter. Once you have that list . . . ask yourself how many of these people were responsible for murdering their opponents, genocide, crimes against humanity, etc. Nuff said? Wake up people . .. please!

    • davidgmills1

      Mao killed 75 million for starters. Stalin was far behind perhaps 25 million less. Pol Pot comes to mind as well (just a couple mil as I recall). You made a ridiculous statement. There is plento of precedent. That is not to suggest that HRC was behind Seth’s death. Only that your statement was dumb.

      • danbo

        My post was for those who might be inclined to dismiss the idea without much thought. Seth Rich’s death could have been a robbery gone wrong. It could be an isolated incident. Or, as some suggest, it could be part of a pattern going back many years. How many political opponents have ended up taking dirt naps after exposing or threatening to expose corruption? Don’t know . . . but all of the leaders you mentioned started off small. Let’s keep it this way . . . .

      This must be sarcasm right, I mean you obviously can’t be that naive? I ask because this is a bit long for a sarcastic comment, however you couldn’t possible believe that because a person is a leader they are all of a sudden not a person anymore, that somehow they transform into an angel not capable of sin.

      • danbo

        No sarcasm here . . . . my comment is directed toward anyone who might hold an equally naive belief: namely, the belief that because a person is a leader they are to be believed and held in high regard. Because of the track record of our leaders throughout history . . . . we should subject them to the most vigorous scrutiny and questioning possible. And we should NOT give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to untimely deaths, threats and other “coincidences”.

        • LoveOurCountry

          Thanks for the quick and intelligent response, I couldn’t agree more.

  • Fantasy Maker

    If this was a robbery attempt then they would have taken his wallet, phone and any other valuables so yes this is suspicious to say the least.

    • Clement Leftan

      Maybe you know more than the police. Let ‘em know what you got

      • Fantasy Maker

        Read the article you half wit

  • Walter S

    It wouldn’t be Hillary if he exposed the data. It would be Debbie Schulz…she was forced resigned.

    • danbo

      Possibly . . . . but I would probably suspect someone who is associated with a long trail of of unexplained deaths (HRC) over someone whose past is clear of any such history (Schulz). These are very troubling times.

    • Don B.

      Two different issues … Debbie Wasserman Schultz was not forced to resign because she was the leaker, she was forced to resign because what she did, it was because she was caught by virtue of emails that were leaked out by hackers or whistleblowers like Seth Rich. Hillary has been covering up many issues for many decades, if you disagree, you must be only reading the scrubbed/whitewashed spin that the Clintons have created or you could be someone who sees these things with rose colored glasses not on the facts and sworn testimonies of those in the know. Very troubling times, especially when one realizes that this corrupt/criminal HRC will most likely be the POTUS.

    where i come from that’s what they do to a chivato. Everyone wanna be deepthroat

  • TheBride

    KGB. Suspect he had too much info on the computer hack from Russia. This has the (old) KGB signature. They never bother to “make” it look like a robbery.

    a remember a line from the godfather, where michael an kay are talking …
    Michael: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.
    Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t have men killed.
    Michael: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?

    all these people on here, who are so equally naive…smh

    Anyone who has 1 day in law enforcement knows that you don’t make immediate conclusions during any homicide investigation and broadcast it to the media as fact.
    Another reason this case is suspect.
    Someone with some powercash wanted this man dead, obviously. This was a hit plain and simple, and was hastily made to look like a robbery.
