Murder of 27-year old DNC staffer still a mystery Seth Rich was a DNC staffer who was murdered in the middle of the night in Washington DC, and the police have no leads.Â The media, however, has chosen not to focus on his murder as part of the larger investigation of who is responsible for the DNC leaks.
Seth Rich was a 27-year-old progressive Democrat, who worked for the Democratic National Committee before he was murdered walking home early Sunday morning in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest Washington D.C. Rich was murdered three blocks east of Howard University Hospital, police said. Mary Rich, Sethâ€™s mother, told reporters that police told her family that her son was probably the victim of an attempted robbery, according to NBC Washington.
Police have no witnesses to the shooting of Seth Rich and acting D.C. Police Capt. Anthony Haythe told NBC that he could not comment on whether the murder was related to the recent robberies in the area.
â€œIf it was a robbery-it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money-he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life,â€ Joel I. Rich, the young progressiveâ€™s father, said, according to UKÂ Daily Mail.
