"Seth slept with an American flag over his bed." (source)

"Everyone seems to agree on Seth's fighting spirit" (source)

"He's kind of known as a goofball, but to me it was very clear to me that there was so much more. It didn't matter who you were, where you came from or where you were going. If he thought you were in trouble, he wanted to help. If you were sad he was going to make you happy, he was going to make you laugh." (source)
"He was a great guy, personable, always there to kind of brighten up your day, even though that was our job as bartenders, just to make the customers happy. Seth would see if we're not happy, he would just like try to cheer us up a little bit." (source)

"All my life I wanted to be in a position that I can make a difference" (source)

"Rich was known for his elaborate outfits. On the Fourth of July, he had dress head to toe in clothes covered with an American flag pattern." (source)

"When he was stuck late at night working in the office, he would dress up as a panda to make his co-workers laugh." (source)

John Podesta writes, "I'm definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it." This quote reveals John's general mindset when it comes to leakers; clearly he cannot know that more than a year from now he will be dealing with some of the most damaging leaks in the history of politics.

Seth's parents recount: "Seth was walking home, talking to his girlfriend on his cellphone. He was about a block from his place when his girlfriend heard voices or something in the background. Seth said he had to go. Two minutes later, he was shot."

Seth's father recounts: "The officers who were there and they said 'Yeah, he was quite talkative, he did not realize he had been shot.'"

Seth's girlfriend of two years, Kelsey Mulka, recounts: "We were on the phone just wrapping up our conversation, he had kind of told me that he was getting close to his house."

Rafael Aguilar and Carmelo Marmolejo-Calixto are found dead in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with "gunshot wounds to vital organs", 434 miles from where Seth was shot 24 hours earlier, a 7 hour drive.

The other victim was slumped over in the passenger seat of the van." Van has Florida South Carolina license plate LGL 344.

Note that an anti-gun-violence website that shows Rafael Aguilar's occupation as "Clinton 2016 campaign aid" allows anyone to freely tag victims with occupations; "Clinton 2016 campaign aid" was likely added as a joke.

Seth's parents (Joel and Mary Rich), girlfriend (Kelsey Mulka), best friend (Michael Cass-Antony), and others (Joseph Capone) who knew Seth go on record to defend Seth against rumors that he is the DNC email leaker, giving exclusive interviews to Crime Watch Daily.

Michael Cass-Antony, reported to be Seth's best friend, equates being good with caring for the DNC: "All those lies that are being bandied about in the news are just that, and the reason that nobody close to him has refuted them is because there's no reason to, because he spoke for himself. Because anybody who knows him knows how good of a person he was, knows how much he cared for the DNC and for where he worked and how much he believed in his cause."

Seth's parents state: "He had just found out he was going to go to work for the Clinton campaign doing data analysis and helping getting people out to vote," and that he had just started to draft a "letter of acceptance", but had only managed to write two sentences, one of which was: "All my life I wanted to be in a position that I can make a difference." Who writes acceptance letters to job offers??? You write a letter if you've got more to say than just a simple acceptance.

Joseph Capone, general manager of Lou's City Bar, states: "I heard there was a bunch of robberies lately by a man with a silver gun in the area. He was here just by himself that night, and even asked him if he wanted to stick around and get a ride home. He was like 'No, I'm going to go somewhere else and then I'll go home.'"

Nov 23, 2016 Parents Joel and Mary Rich appear at press conference with Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman to offer $125,000 reward.

Wed, Dec 14, 2016

Craig Murray of Wikileaks claims to have met a disgruntled DNC staffer in September who gave him emails. These could only have been the Podesta emails, released on October 7, 2016, not the DNC emails, which were released July 22.

Feb 20, 2017

Jack Burkman appeals to Congress to investigate Seth's death under the theory that it might have been the Russians trying to disrupt the voter registration project Seth was working on for the DNC.

Sat, Mar 19, 2017 Aaron Rich, Seth's brother, creates funding campaign for Seth, with a goal of $200k (link removed due to TD rules): "These funds will allow my family to investigate, and help solve Seth's murder. We know somewhere, someone has the information on who murdered Seth. We intend to use these funds to hire professional help that can discover new facts and information, cooperating with the police and solving this in the fastest way possible."

Thu, Mar 23, 2017 Jack Burkman launches independent investigation into Seth's murder, in which Seth's family take no part. From the article:

Kevin Doherty, a security expert on the team, says: "We are going to look at link analysis. We are going to try and establish a timeline. We are going to see if there were individuals who may have been missed."

The team includes a forensic physiologist, a security specialist and George Washington grad students, and are operating out of the new Seth Rich Center for Investigations in Arlington, Virginia.

Burkman claims a former U.S. Intelligence Officer told him the Russian's had something to do with Rich's murder.

Apr 27, 2017 Andrew Therriault's tweets at Seth's Twitter account @panda4progress: "A group of Pandas is called an "Embarrassment"".

As of May 20, tweet has been deleted.

May 15, 2017 Fox News reports that Rod Wheeler, a private investigator, says there is evidence that Seth had contact with Wikileaks. From the article:

Wheeler states: "The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming. They haven't been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both."

Asked if his sources have told him there is information that links Seth to Wikileaks, Wheeler stated: "Absolutely. Yeah. That's confirmed."

Wheeler also said: "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.' Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don't think it comes from the chief's office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor's office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out."

Seth's family distanced itself from Rod Wheeler: "The private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family."

May 16, 2017

The Gateway Pundit claims the footage from the body cameras worn by three of the police officers responding to Seth's shooting is missing.

Brad Bauman, the spokesman for Seth's family, and a professional Democrat crisis PR consultant, claims Rod Wheeler is being funded by Ed Butowsky, but Butowsky denies this.

May 17, 2017 Fox News modifies it's May 15 article to note that Rod Wheeler has become wishy-washy about his previous on-camera claims that he communicated with the FBI regarding Wikileaks and Seth Rich.

Brad Bauman releases this statement: "This is the statement from the Rich family re: today?s little fake news story. As we?ve seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press. Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we?ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so. We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth?s murderers. The services of the private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family."
