Questions are starting to formulate behind Wikileaks request for info behind the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. One of which, was Seth responsible for the massive email leak that sent the DNC crashing? What do you think?
Wikileaks is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the death of a Democratic National Committee staffer, reigniting rumors he fed the organization thousands of party emails.
Seth Conrad Rich, 27, was gunned down in the affluent Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington D.C. last month while he was on the phone to his girlfriend.
Wikileaks’ announcement Tuesday has added fuel to the flames of conspiracy theories claiming Rich leaked the 20,000 DNC emails that were released at the start of the party’s convention.
Rich’s body was found covered in bruises on the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW, but he still had his watch, cell phone and wallet on him.
So far, police have uncovered no clues to help solve his murder despite offering a $25,000 reward.
D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said previously that Rich may have been killed in an attempted robbery, but his family insist nothing was taken from him.
The trail seems to have gone cold following his death on July 10.
A police report seen by DailyMail.com also states the circumstances surrounding Rich’s homicide are ‘unknown’.
The mystery has sparked a flurry of theories posted online, including claims he leaked DNC emails or that he was on his way to speak to the FBI when he was shot.
Reddit user The_Donald also constructed a timeline that links Rich to the Clintons, as pointed out by Heat Street.
