Fox 5 DC has revealed surprising and concerning information regarding Seth Rich, the former Democrat National Committee staffer who was found murdered in Washington, DC in July 2016. Questions regarding responsibility and potential motive for the murder have remained unanswered to this point, with police unable to locate and arrest a suspect for Rich’s shooting.
Suspicion circulated throughout social and alternative media after Rich’s killing, with journalists and commentators such as Mike Cernovich questioning whether Rich’s murder was carried out in order to silence him from leaking potentially politically damaging information about Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party in the run-up to the November 8th Presidential Election.
However, Fox 5’s correspondence with a private investigator has revealed some suspicious details, that could be said to give credence to theories that Rich’s murder was politically motivated. Rod Wheeler- a private investigator hired to research the case by the Rich family after local authorities failed to crack the case- gave an earnestly shocking answer when asked if Rich had any connections to Wikileaks, the accountability and transparency platform that famously exposed the DNC’s rigged primary process by virtue of leaked emails detailing corruption amongst the DNC’s leadership. “Absolutely. Yeah. That’s confirmed,” Wheeler answered when asked by Fox 5 DC whether “sources have told him there is information that links Rich to Wikileaks.”
Perhaps even more shocking was Wheeler’s answer when asked about the Washington D.C Police Department’s investigation into the case. “I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you,” Wheeler was described as telling Fox 5.
An additional report on Mr. Wheeler’s inquiry into the matter is expected to be released by Fox 5 on Tuesday morning.
