MPD Chief Lanier: "it is not clear there was a link" between Seth Rich's killing and the recent Bloomingdale robberies

See these two paragraphs from Aaron C. Davis's Washington Post article that mentions the shooting death of Bloomingdale resident Seth Rich.

"it was not clear there was a link."

"Mr. Rich and robberies, it has not been determined."

Fact Check: Robberies in D.C. are up, not down


And when asked at the news conference about Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, who was killed two days earlier near his Bloomingdale home in what police have told the family may have been a robbery, D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) said it was not clear there was a link.
“Actually Mr. Rich and robberies, it hasn’t been determined,” Bowser said, turning the microphone over to Lanier.

  2. Also interesting from the article is that her assessment that crime is down is not supported by the facts. What a disingenuous spin. She needs to go.

  4. We need McMillan park for numerous community building activities. Where youth might have gained some integrity, and community responsibility. Less crime, more productive lives.

    STOP DMPED/VMP/FONTAINE from stealing our land, boot McDuffie, arrest Bowser. She hasn't missed a corrupt opportunity yet!

    1. McMillan isn't going to solve crime issues. BUILD BABY BUILD!
