Report: Evidence Shows Seth Rich Killed by Professional Killer, Not Robbers

A bombshell report from The Profiling Project, an “independent, nonpartisan group of forensic psychology graduate students at George Washington University,” suspects that former DNC staffer Seth Rich was likely killed by a professional killer. The study looked at the unusual details behind the death of Rich on July 10, 2016… a murder which there are no suspects for yet. The report is based on security footage from the city, as well as public records and “informal, limited interviews.”
The group is funded by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman who offered a $105,000 reward for solving the murder case. Rich was only 27-years-old when he was killed.
The report claims the death was likely not “random” like originally claimed. In addition, “the fact that this person has gotten away with it shows a level of proficiency.”:
At the same time, it drew a distinction between professional killer and conspiracy theories from the 2016 election. Interesting:“We do not believe Offender is a robber, nor a robber who killed,” the report says. For one, the report mentions that Rich’s watch, wallet, phone, and necklace were not stolen. Additionally, it notes that Rich was shot in the back and there were no signs of a physical struggle. Therefore, it says that Rich’s death does not look like a robbery gone bad.
Between their doubt regarding the random robber theory, as well as the lack of physical evidence at the scene, the report concludes that the perpetrator was likely an experienced killer.
Offender had the ability to kill, and brought with them an instrument to do so. Though we do not know what other items Seth may have had in his possession, his watch, phone, wallet and necklace were not stolen. Nor was Seth’s body reported to have been further accosted or degraded. With such a sanitized crime scene and no emotional indications, this is not Offenders first kill.
With a clean crime scene and likely an experienced killer, the report says that Rich may have been targeted.
Here is the full report, shared by WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C.:However, it also debunks conspiracy theories surrounding Rich’s death, like the controversial belief that Rich was murdered for supposedly leaking information to Wikileaks. The report examined theories of Rich being killed as a result of a planned effort by the DNC, the Clintons, Russian operatives, or some other “hit team.”
The Profiling Project ultimately said that none of these theories are likely. If Rich was taken out by the DNC, the Clintons, Russians, or any other organized effort, the report argues, they would have used a professional, who would have made sure Rich was dead. Rich didn’t die until after he was transported to a hospital. “A professional killer, whose sole job would have been to terminate Seth,” the report says, “did not accomplish their mission prior to escaping.” The report does admit that if there was a positive toxicology report that indicated that Rich was poisoned, that could support one of these conspiracy theories, but there were no such reports.

The spokesman for Rich’s family responded: “Given that fact, the family hopes that the general public takes the findings at face value– valuable experience in research collection and report writing for students at George Washington University but in no way should take any findings contained within as new, credible or otherwise lending credence to conspiracy theories surrounding the circumstances of Seth’s death.”
