There is now a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer(s) of a DNC employee who was mysteriously killed on Sunday. Seth Rich was shot multiple times in the back while walking in the streets of Washington D.C.
Police have no suspect or motive, and so multiple theories about the death of Rich, a rising star at the DNC, are quickly spreading.
FACTS TO CONSIDER:
1) Rich was shot while walking home after 4 a-m on Sunday morning.
2) Rich held a phone call with his girlfriend minutes before the murder.
3) Police say Rich’s injuries reflect a struggle.
4) Rich’s father told the local TV station that nothing was stolen from his son. His watch, money, credit cards and phone remained on his person.
The lack of evidence combined with there being no signs of a robbery have sparked multiple theories on social media and throughout the high-end neighborhood where the murder took place.
Some are questioning if the murder was racially motivated. One of Seth Rich’s most recent tweets called for peace after 5 police officers were killed in Dallas.
But the most interesting conspiracy theory questions whether Seth Rich was heading to a late night meeting with the FBI to provide information about alleged voter fraud by Hillary Clinton and DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The theory is that he was murdered to keep him silent.
Rich worked as voter expansion data director for the DNC since 2014, the DNC confirmed. A 2011 graduate of Creighton University, Rich’s resume is filled with various jobs in Democratic politics and political consulting.
