Shawn Lucas, an activist who recently served the Democratic National Committee (DNC) with a lawsuit, was found dead due to unknown causes.
His girlfriend found him lying on the bathroom floor of his house when she returned home on the evening of August 2, 2016. According to Snopes, his girlfriend made a call to 911. However, paramedics did not find any signs of life.
The activist was known to many distressed Democrats as the young man who served the Democratic National Committee (DNC) with a lawsuit on early July 2016. The lawsuit alleged that the DNC has done “fraud” in favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary process.
Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter were flooded by rumors and conspiracy theories. There were many users who felt concerned that the activist’s death may have been directly linked to his role as process server for the DNC lawsuit.
Although there are people who said that the activist was the “lead attorney” on the case, but the claim had not yet been corroborated.
On July 22, 2016, a motion [PDF] filed by the DNC, in which he was named, sought to dismiss the lawsuit on partial grounds of improper service.
According to an employee who worked with the activist in the same company, Shawn Lucas died on August 2, 2016. The employee stated that a lot of people were interested in the circumstances of his death.
This interest evoked a number of phone calls and queries. However, the company has not yet confirmed details about the cause of death. The theories regarding the circumstances of his death are understandable. Given the timing of his death, people are trying to confirm the idea that the Democrats had something to do with it.
Similar cases had already occurred, since recently, another anti-Clinton researcher was found to have committed suicide. Yesterday, news came out that Victor Thorn was found dead on top of a mountain near his home. He was an apparent victim of gunshot wound, reported the Free Republic.
On August 1, 2016, Thorn took his own life on his birthday. He was the author of 20 books and 30 chapbooks. He wrote about conspiracy theories and was best known for his investigate research on the Clinton family. Thorn penned the Clinton trilogy, which includes definitive works that looked into the history of the power couple.
The suicide seemed suspicious to a lot of people. In an audio interview, Thorn’s brother said that Thorn would never deal with morbid stuff like death. It is confusing that even after that, he would allow himself to commit suicide, according to the American Free Press.
Apparently, suicide is nothing new when it comes to the Clinton couple. Vince Foster, Deputy White House Counsel during Bill Clinton’s presidential rule, also committed suicide.
Foster’s suicide was the center of much speculation since he shot himself in a Virginia park in 1993. Ronald Kessler, an investigative journalist for Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, said baffling things in his book The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents and The Secrets of the FBI.
The Daily Mail reported that FBI agents investigating the death of Foster found that Hillary Clinton may have provoked his suicide. She attacked and humiliated Foster in front of White House aides a week before he took his own life.
Shawn Lucas’ death is still a mystery. Further information is required to genuinely understand the circumstances of his death.
