Skip to comments.Seth Rich: Acoustically Captured Murder (ShotSpotter)
Posted on 08/21/2016 11:12:46 PM PDT by Regurgitated
I would like to say that I hope the family takes a deep interest in getting ALL THE FACTS of what happened to Seth.
I also hope they can piece it all together and that whoever killed Seth Rich is brought to justice.
Seth Rich's murder was acoustically captured by the ShotSpotter system.
This system will let us know how many shots were fired and more importantly how far apart the shots were. If an execution had taken place I would you would hear an unrushed pull of the trigger [POP POP] but in a hasty robbery gone bad, perhaps two fast POPPOP. If indeed this was a robbery and Seth Rich being shot in the back, you have to wonder was he running away from the threat after breaking free (note he was allegedly "covered in bruises"), was he walking away thinking the robbers just let him go? Were his clothes torn? Knees scuffed from a running fall? His father stated his wristwatch was torn, was he being held? Perhaps he did break free and was making a break for it when the shooters fired at him? Were the shots at close range? Certainly a professional killer would know about ShotSpotter sensors being in the area? Or if a quick hired kill from an amateur maybe not? So many questions...and unfortunately the autopsy is not a public record. The police report is available at the HEAVY.com weblink. . As you can see, not much information. There were officers at the scene wearing bodycams, I wonder is the video possible to obtain? Seth was reported to be conscious and breathing when officers arrived at the scene. Maybe I watch too many movies where the officer says, stick with me kid, tell me what happened?...
ShotSpotter information can be found below: ShotSpotter data, DC areas
1/3 DC covered with ShotSpotter sensors
snippet: A gift of $2 million in federal grant money allowed DC to first install ShotSpotter sensors eight years ago, and the District has since invested another $3.5 million towards maintaining a tool that local law enforcement praises as a powerful crime fighting implement. Eight years after first being installed across DC, the sensors continue to provide the MPD with a detailed outline of where throughout the city shots have been fired. Coupled with an expansive surveillance system that rivals other major metropolitan cities in the United States, ShotSpotter gives law enforcement the power to re-assemble the pieces of violent acts with accuracy that likely wouldnt be otherwise possible.
Below is a snippet from HEAVY.COM where an article is posted along with the police report ******************************* Seth Conrad Richs unsolved murder on a Washington D.C. street has sparked a flurry of conspiracy theories because he was a staffer and self-described data analyst for the Democratic National Committee.
ANNOUNCE: WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.
Rich, 27, who worked for the DNC on voting issues, was shot and killed in Washington D.C., and his murder remains mysterious. Police have found little information to explain his death, said The New York Daily News.
Conspiracy theories are raging about Richs death because of his DNC employment and also the lack of an obvious motive, eyewitnesses, or suspect in the case. Rich, 27, was shot on July 10, 2016 at 4:15 in the morning near a Washington D.C. neighborhood where he lived, said CBS News. Some are also raising questions about the August death of Shawn Lucas, who served the DNC with a lawsuit alleging fraud in the presidential race.
In the Rich homicide case, The Washington Post wrote on July 11: Police said they have no suspects, witnesses or motive, though they are looking at whether Rich could have been slain in an attempted robbery.
Washington D.C. Metropolitan police public affairs told Heavy on Aug. 9: At this time, there is no indication that Seth Richs death is connected to his employment at the DNC. However, we welcome information that could potentially lead to the identification of the individual(s) responsible for his death and are pleased when any outside contributors help us generate new leads.

The article you linked to,

is not the title of your post
There was a struggle.
That argues against a hit. A pro would have executed him Chinese-style, with a round to the back of the head. Knowing ShotSpotter and concerned citizens exist, a pro would have used a silencer. Cops would have found Rich dead on the pavement, belongings intact, no suspects, and no trip to the hospital. Straight to the morgue. That’s not what happened.
More likely, some guy with a gun confronted Rich and demanded money, etc. Rich tried to take the guy’s gun away, and the guy shot him in self-defense. Boom! Then, realizing he’d just committed an unplanned felony murder, the guy panicked and split, leaving Rich’s belongings for the police to find.

Or they hired a street thug to kill him.
So an assassin might who was hired to take him out might also know that area is covered by shot spotter, too, huh?
Perhaps he didn’t use a suppressor because NO shots recorded would be suspicious also? Right?
THis is Arkancide directed — and protected by — Lynch
and Comey, PAID agents of HSBC and Clinton Foundation.
PAID operatives who sold out America.
THIS WAS TREASON, just like JFK’s murder by perhaps
the same people.
“I would like to say that I hope the family takes a deep interest in getting ALL THE FACTS of what happened to Seth.”
I don’t think the family will say a single word. If they want to live, they’ll STFU, exactly as Justice Scalia’s family did in spite of several suspicious facets surrounding his death.
The dnc has not offered a reward. They aren’t concerned if the killer is brought to justice.
“The dnc has not offered a reward. They arent concerned if the killer is brought to justice.”
Hmmmm...the dog that didn’t bark?
That’s an excellent point. WHY WOULDN’T the DNC put up some reward money? The Wikileaks reward offer makes this a HUGE story. I cannot imagine if the tables were turned and this all came from the GOP.
