Following a three month long investigation into the murder of Seth Rich, the Profiling Project, a volunteer group of current and former George Washington University forensic psychology graduate students and instructors, have found that his death “does not appear to be a random homicide.”
Additionally, the group found that it does not appear to have been a botched robbery — and that it “was more likely committed by a hired killer or serial murderer.”
The organization, whose main goal is assisting police with profiling, added that there may be additional surveillance footage and that the resolution of prosecuting the individual(s) responsible appears to be hindered both actively and passively.
The 45-page report details that the crime-scene appeared to be “almost sanitized,” as no firearms casings were reported to be found, and no physical evidence was reported. The PP also found that there did not appear to be excessive force used, as only two shots were reported, so the offender does not appear to be psychotic. The report also noted that “the offender did not display excessive emotion at the crime scene, did not appear to act from hate, anger, fear, gain, jealousy or revenge, all motivations for murder.”
“If Offender actively managed the crime scene, intentionally leaving no evidence or insight, Offender may be an experienced, sophisticated criminal with in-depth knowledge of law-enforcement procedures. Such an Offender would lend to the notion that Seth was targeted, as the experienced criminal would leave little to chance. With little to no knowledge of Seth’s physical capabilities, the impulsive Offender most likely would have selected a more desirable victim,” the report stated.
The PP also believes that whoever the shooter was, this was not their first kill.
“We do not believe Offender is a robber, nor a robber who killed. 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 Offender’s first kill,” the report asserts.
In going over each possible theory for the murder motive, the PP laid out very fascinating cases. They determined that a robbery gone wrong was “not likely,” but that the theory that his death involved him being a source for WikiLeaks was “not likely,” pending unanswered conditions.
The report states that it is not likely that he was killed for providing the information to WikiLeaks, “unless a toxin was introduced into Seth.”
“The first hurdle this theory needs to overcome is that a professional killer would have been the offender. Seth did not die at the scene. A professional killer, whose sole job would have been to terminate Seth did not accomplish their mission prior to escaping. Positive toxicology reports would be needed to support this theory,” the report states.
As noted at the beginning of their report, the group believes that a hired killer is more likely than the botched robbery theory, but that it is unlikely a hired assassin would have left the scene without the mark being confirmed as dead.
“Any forgiven substance in Seth’s system could support this theory. Any poison or radiation indications would support the professional killer theory, as the killer would have known that once the matter entered the bloodstream it would take effect,” PP added.
As we have previously reported, tech entrepreneur and friend of WikiLeaks, Kim Dotcom, has offered to provide Congress with proof that Rich was the source of the leaked DNC emails.
“I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich,” Kim wrote in his statement. “Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.
I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.”
Dotcom wrote that, “he wanted to change that from the inside.”
Amidst claims by Dotcom leading up to his statement, Julian Assange tweeted that though WikiLeaks won’t identify sources — sometimes their sources reveal themselves to other people. He also included the #SethRich hashtag in his tweet.
WikiLeaks has never disclosed a source. Sources sometimes talk to other parties but identities never emerge from WikiLeaks. #SethRich

Though Assange has infamously expressed interest in Rich, he has always maintained that WikiLeaks will never name a source. To this day, he continues to refer to Chelsea Manning as an “alleged source.”
The organization did offer a $20,000 reward for Rich’s murderer however, and has retweeted articles that asserted he was their source without providing any additional comment.
Without conclusive evidence that Rich was WikiLeaks’ source, PP had one more theory to offer — that the “full-scope of Seth’s injuries were not recognized initially as life-threatening. As such, Seth was not urgently transported to a hospital and the crime scene was not given the attention that a murder crime scene would receive.”
When police had arrived at the scene, Rich was alive, conscious, and speaking to law enforcement — though what he was saying to them remains unknown.

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.
Reddit and Twitter accounts which are believed to have belonged to Rich strongly indicate that Rich was a fan of Bernie Sanders — which has also been independently confirmed to Big League Politics by a source who was close to the victim. If so, this may provide a motive to leak the information which implicated the DNC in sabotaging the Sanders campaign.
In an aggressive statement following reports that Rich was the WikiLeaks source, Brad Bauman, the spokesman for the Rich family, who just so happens to be a Democratic Party crisis PR consultant, claims that even if an email [to WikiLeaks] was found, it would not be evidence of foul play.
As Big League Politics has previously reported:
Bauman is a well-known Democratic crisis communications consultant and former Democratic staffer. He is a co-founder and partner of the firm the Pastorum Group. Fellow co-founder Josh Cohen has written for The Atlantic Council, the George Soros-funded think tank that targets pro-Trump journalists, and fellow co-founder Michelle Coyle Edwards was an executive at Rising Tide, which was a Ready For Hillary client.
In releasing their report, PP stated that their findings were given to the family prior to being made public.

COULTER: Detained Illegals Are “Being Separated From Coyotes and Drug Mules”
Author and pundit Ann Coulter was confronted by a TMZ cameraman today, and the result was not pretty for the paparazzo.
“The biggest thing is these kids are being separated from their parents,” said the cameraman posing a lefty journalist
Coulter responded in her usual ruthless manner.
“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before” she said.
Coulter continued to savage her adversary.
“The parents can stay in Mexico,” she said. “You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff. His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”
The activist then brought up the First Ladies who have denounced President Donald J. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.
“Thank God First Ladies aren’t elected officials,” Coulter replied with a grin.
When asked if she thought this would be a “stain on our country’s history,” Coulter delivered her knockout blow.
“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in,” she said. “It will never, never stop.”
WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise
More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.
“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.
The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.
“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.
The staff accompanied the petition with a video.
“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.
The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.
Chris Pratt At MTV Awards: “God Is Real, You Have A Soul, Learn To Pray”
It was a welcomed change to most Hollywood speeches
While accepting the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, world-renowned actor Chris Pratt used his platform to preach his belief in God to a massive nationwide audience. In his acceptance speech, he laid out 9 rules for life, with a series of jokes, along with a number of solid pieces of life advice. Among his advice are “you have a soul, be careful with it,” and that “God is real,” and that he “loves you.” He also encourages those listening to him to learn to pray, telling them that it’s easy, and that it’s “good for the soul.”
All nine of his rules can be read here:
- “Breathe. If you don’t, you will suffocate.”
- “You have a soul. Be careful with it.”
- “Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
- “When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.”
- “It doesn’t matter what it is. Earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”
- “God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that, I do.”
- “If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door, sit down, get all of the pee out first. And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom! You minimize the amount of time that the poop’s touching the air. Because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles, create a cloud, goes out, then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.”
- “Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it is so good for your soul.”
- “Nobody is perfect. People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are, you are not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. Like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget that. Don’t take that for granted.”
This speech is a wholesome change of pace from what many in Hollywood have been saying at similar award ceremonies. Recently, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro used his time on stage at the Tony Awards to yell “f*** Trump!” His stunt resulted in thunderous applause from the audience mostly full of Hollywood elites.
Surprisingly, Pratt’s speech also resulted in loud applause, despite a handful of visible dissenters in the crowd when he spoke about his faith. This likely has to do with Pratt’s enormous profile as one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Virtually everything he is a part of becomes a hit, and his upcoming movie “Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom” isn’t expected to be any different.
The Generation Award he was receiving showcases just how high profile of a celebrity he is. The award is given to those who show great achievement in movies. Recent winners include Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr., and Johnny Depp.
