Seth Rich’s father, Joel, had stated that his son had the opportunity to work for the presidential campaign for Hillary Clinton.
Seth Rich was the Democratic National Committee voting rights staffer who was mysteriously gunned down on July 10. His murder took place early in the morning near the neighborhood he lived in.
Seth Rich Murder: Joel Rich’s Statements
According to Forward, Joel said that his son had finally landed his dream job. He mentioned that Seth had always wanted to work for a presidential campaign and that Seth’s bosses at the Democratic National Committee wanted him to work on Hillary Clinton’s. Seth had been wishing to get into a job like that since he was in college.
“He’d worked on senate and house campaigns but he’d always wanted to work on a presidential campaign,” Joel said.
“He had just found out they wanted him and he was probably going to be moving up to Brooklyn through the election. He was really excited about that.”
The father of the dead DNC staffer also said that Seth’s watch band was torn, and there were bruises on his body, clearly hinting that he fought for his life.
“We don’t know if there’s one person or two people – all we know is that there was a scuffle,” he said.
“Seth’s watchband was torn, so somebody had tried to grab that.”
Seth Rich Murder: New Revelations
According to reports by the Daily Mail, Seth had been drinking heavily at a bar hours before his murder, witnesses said. He was extremely upset because of an argument with his girlfriend the same night.
His state of inebriation could have acted as the cause that made him a prime target for violence in the high-crime northwest Washington, DC neighborhood where he was gunned down.
Earlier, conspiracy theories were weaving that Seth was going to meet FBI agents to report on election frauds, in which Hillary Clinton was allegedly involved. However, these theories had been debunked by latest reports. But theorists are still holders of the opinion that Seth stole classified emails from the DNC and leaked to it WikiLeaks. Many theorists are sure of the speculation that it was Seth who acted as WikiLeaks’ source on the leak.
To add up to the controversy, last week, Julian Assange hinted at the possibility that Seth was the source who leaked the information to WikiLeaks. Assange promptly denied the robber theory behind Seth’s murder, as reported earlier by Morning News USA.
Assange also declared a sum of $20K to anyone who comes up with correct information about Seth’s murder, one that could lead up to the conviction of the killer.
