An independent group of psychological forensics experts has concluded their investigation into the murder of Seth Rich — and it’s troubling.

WASHINGTON – The murder of Seth Rich was written off as a robbery gone bad by the mainstream press, as well as the DC police. However, there has been a persistent discussion that he may have been the source of the leaked DNC emails, published by WikiLeaks – and that he was not the victim of a random homicide.
After a months-long investigation into the murder of Rich by they Profiling Project, investigators found that his murder, “more likely was committed by a hired killer or serial murderer,” than a robbery gone bad.
The Profiling Project released the results of their months-long investigation into the murder of Rich on Tuesday.
“A proficient killer is what we think – the fact that the killer has gotten away with it for this period of time and it appears it was a very sanitized crime scene, so there is certainly some level of proficiency in the killing,” Kevin Doherty, lead investigator of the Profiling Project said during a press conference Tuesday.
When asked about any specific clues that have led to the group’s conclusion, Doherty explained “it is the lack of clues” that substantiated the deduction.
“The crime scene was sanitized, there is no direct linking to really anything. The police have no suspects,” he said. “The individuals have gotten away with it at this point in time. There were no behavioral indications at the crime scene. It didn’t look like rage or revenge or hate were the motivation behind it. It’s really a lack of behavioral indicators, motion and evidence that leads us to believe that whoever did this is proficient at killing.”
The project, which is an “all-volunteer group of current and former George Washington University forensic psychology graduate students and instructors,” said the group came together in an effort to “aid the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police utilizing forensic psychology skills and tools in hopes of providing at least one actionable item.”
The report includes numerous troubling findings, which lends credibility to the idea that there has been cover up of some kind related to Rich’s murder, including:
- Seth’s death does not appear to be a random homicide.
- Seth’s death does not appear to be a robbery gone bad.
- Seth‘s death was more likely committed by a hired killer or serial murderer.
- There may be additional video surveillance of the crime and crime scene.
- The resolution of prosecuting the individual(s) responsible appears to be hindered both actively and passively.
- Seth’s killer(s) most likely remains free with the community.
The Profiling Project noted that it “decided not to officially interview anyone for this section” to avoid “the potential for re-victimization” and instead used open source information.
Over the course of the investigation the group found Rich was “conscious and breathing with apparent gunshot wound(s) to the back” when police arrived. He was taken to an unnamed hospital and “pronounced by attending physician at 0557 hours.”
Investigators from the group found “the crime scene was very organized to the point of being sanitized.”
“This would indicate careful planning on the part of the offender, control of the entry to and exit from the crime scene as well as in-depth understanding of law-enforcement investigative processes.”
This comes on the heels of Kim Dotcom offering to provide evidence to the US government that Rich was indeed the source of the DNC emails.
While WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange has stopped short of identifying Rich as the source of the emails, as WikiLeaks never divulges sources, he has shown an unusual interest in the case – leading many to speculate as to why.
“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” the organization announced shortly after his murder.
After announcing that WikiLeaks would pay $20,000 for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s murderer, Assange went on an interview with Nieuwsurr. During the interview, Assange implied that Rich was his source.
Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?
Assange: No. There’s no finding.
Host: What are you suggesting?
Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.
Host: But was he one of your sources, then?
Assange: We don’t comment on who our sources are.
In subsequent appearances on Fox News Channel, Assange confirmed, “We’re interested in anything that might be a threat to alleged WikiLeaks sources.”
These recent revelations, regarding the investigation, also explain why the FBI was not allowed to inspect the DNC servers that were allegedly hacked by the Russians. It also explains why a private company was brought in to analyze the allegedly hacked computers, as the FBI’s analysis would likely have proven that there was no Russian hacking of the DNC – undermining the “Russia hacked the election” propaganda war — thus the DNC conveniently relying on the analysis of a private company, CrowdStrike.
Interestingly, Crowdstrike’s CTO and co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a think tank with openly anti-Russian sentiments that is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, who also happened to donate at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Furthermore, in 2013, the Atlantic Council awarded Hillary Clinton its Distinguished International Leadership Award. In 2014, the Atlantic Council hosted one of several events with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who took over after pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in early 2014, and who now lives in exile in Russia.
Really think about that for a second…
What legitimate reason would the DNC have for denying the FBI access to their allegedly hacked servers, and instead hire a private cyber security firm with a strong anti-Russian stance with extremely close connections to Ukrainian oligarchs?
The answer is that there is NO legitimate reason to do so. The only possible reason seems to be that the DNC didn’t want the FBI to be able to report that there was no Russian hack – as that would undermine the entire psyop/propaganda operation.
These facts lend credence to the theory that the DNC denying the FBI access was a strategic move meant to cover up what the DNC already knew to be a leak so they could forward a strategic narrative — that Russia did it.
The reality is that this family is now simply a pawn in a much larger geopolitical game. Oddly, the thought of Seth’s killing being the result of random violence is likely much more comforting to his family than the thought that Seth was potentially murdered by people connected to the organizations and causes he gave his time, energy and effort towards supporting — while trying to “make a difference in the world.”
