On July 10, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC about a block from his apartment. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.
Via Wikipedia: Earlier that night he had been at Lou’s City Bar, a sports pub 1.8 miles from his apartment, in Columbia Heights, where he was a regular customer. He left when the bar was closing, at about 1:30 or 1:45 a.m. Police were alerted to gunfire at 4:20 a.m. by an automated gunfire locator. Within approximately one minute after the gun shots, police officers found Rich with multiple gunshot wounds, in a conscious and breathing state. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died. According to police, he died from two shots to the back… Rich’s mother told NBC’s Washington affiliate WRC-TV, “There had been a struggle. His hands were bruised, his knees are bruised, his face is bruised, and yet he had two shots to his back, and yet they never took anything… They didn’t finish robbing him, they just took his life.”
NBC 4 reported:
Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.
Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”
The Metropolitan police posted a reward for information on Rich’s murder.
In August Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth rich.
Julian Assange also suggested in August that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant.

In June 2017 a report by the independent Profiling Project suggests DNC operative Seth Rich was murdered by “hired killer.”
After a three month review and investigation the committee discovered:
1.) Seth’s death does not appear to be a random homicide
2.) Seth’s death does not appear to be a robbery gone bad.
3.) Seth’s death was more likely committed by a hired killer or serial murderer.
The murder investigation of Seth Rich is still open. There are no leads.
It has now been a year since Seth Rich was murdered.
