Family of murdered DNC employee Seth Rich speaks out on 'Crime Watch'
Friday, September 30th 2016
WASHINGTON (ABC7) - The family of Seth Rich, the 27-year-old Democratic Party employee who was gunned down in July, is speaking out. They appeared on the syndicated program "Crime Watch".
Rich's girlfriend says she is still waiting for answers. She believes whoever shot Rich did so out of anger.
The family also appears to be playing down conspiracy theories surrounding the killing.
It happened July 10, shortly before Wikileaks released a trove of emails which sparked the resignation of several party leaders on the eve of the Democratic Convention.
Since nothing of Rich's was stolen during the shooting conspiracy theorists began circulating Rich may have been the leaker.
Then Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, offered a reward in the case.
Investigators initially speculated Rich was killed in a failed robbery attempt.
His girlfriend said Rich is the kind of guy who wouldn't cross a street until the light changed. Apparently countering speculation he would have betrayed the Democratic Party.
