Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee employee, was murdered on July 10, 2016, in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

It's been nearly four years since Seth Rich was shot and died while walking home in Washington, DC, in a murder mystery that has captivated the nation's attention. 

However, the killer of Seth hasn't been identified till now, he was killed by unknown perpetrators for unknown reasons, but police assumed he was the victim of an attempted robbery.

In the frenetic environment of the 2016 presidential race, conspiracy theorists seized on Seth's death, which quickly became a national issue.

The date of the murder, as well as the fact that he worked for a political party, drew immediate attention.

Wikileaks revealed 20,000 emails seized from Democratic National Committee computers via an unnamed source just weeks after his death.

Who Killed Seth Rich?

Seth Rich was killed by unknown assailants for unknown reasons on July 10, 2016, at 4:20 a.m. in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

 Police suspected he'd been the victim of a robbery attempt. The death of Seth sparked a flurry of conspiracy theories.

Seth was either killed by the Clintons or assassinated by Russian spies, depending on the politics of the speculators.

According to several theories, he was a hidden Bernie Sanders supporter, an undercover Republican giving secrets to Putin's Russia, or a hero slain by the establishment.

These theories, which were based on little or no evidence, started on obscure websites and blogs and quickly went to Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter.

Some of these eventually made it into the mainstream media, where they were exploited by Trump supporters for political gain. 

Right-wing conspiracy theories arose quickly, including suggestions that his assassination was linked to the 2016 DNC email dump or the FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Seth Rich Family Speaks Up After Years of Murder

Seth Rich, a young Democratic Party aide, was fatally shot early on July 10, 2016, leaving his parents Joel and Mary Rich with an unimaginable loss.

Mary and Joel Rich lived peacefully in Omaha, Nebraska, prior to 2016, with no connections to the national political landscape other than their younger son's idealistic goals.

Rich's family termed conspiracy theorists "disgusting sociopaths" who were exploiting their son's murder for political advantage.

Rich's parents, Joel and Mary, sued in 2018, alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress when Fox News produced and aired a conspiracy theory about Rich.

Despite the fact that the family said it is "pleased" with the settlement, it did not provide any details regarding the conditions.

"There had been a struggle," Rich's mother told NBC Washington affiliate WRC-TV. His hands, knees, and face were all bruised, but he still had two gunshot wounds on his back.

WikiLeaks established a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in Rich's death on August 9, 2016, which was later boosted to $125,000.

The incentive offer was unable to be verified by Rich's family.

He was found with two bullet holes in his back, as well as his watch, wallet, and phone.

Rich's parents and girlfriend appeared on the syndicated television show Crime Watch Daily to discuss the murder case in September 2016.

People who worked with Rich claimed he wasn't a skilled computer hacker who was assisting in the disclosure of sensitive material to outsiders.

Rich was furious when he learned that Russian intelligence services had hacked the DNC systems and were potentially interfering with the election.
