Family of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich blasts detective over report of WikiLeaks link, by Malia Zimmerman

Here is the Fox News source story for yesterday’s Zero Hedge story posted on SLL on the murder of Seth Rich. Please click the link to the original story for Sean Hannity’s interview with Rod Wheeler.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”

– Rod Wheeler, former DC homicide investigator

Wheeler made his comments on the possible Rich-Wikileaks connection in a story first reported Monday night by Fox 5 DC.

In an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday night, Wheeler said a “federal investigator that was involved on the inside of the case” saw Rich’s computer and the case file.

Wheeler told host Sean Hannity the investigator “came across [as] very credible. When you look at that, with the totality of everything else that I found in this case, it’s very consistent for a person with my experience to begin to think, ‘Well, perhaps there were some email communication between Seth and Wikileaks.'”

But a spokesman for Rich’s family on Tuesday said Wheeler was not authorized to speak for the family and called assertions Seth Rich sent emails to WikiLeaks “unsubstantiated.” Brad Bauman said even if purported emails were to surface, it would not necessarily mean Rich had helped WikiLeaks.

“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so,” Bauman said. “We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers.”
