27-year-old Seth Rich was shot and killed in a Washington D.C. neighborhood in July 2016, during the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Many had suspected that he was the source for the DNC email leaks after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange made a vague reference to him in an interview. Initial reports were that he was murdered as apart of a robbery, even though nothing was taken from his person.
WikiLeaks just published a tweet that contains a text message between hacker Guccifer 2.0 and actress-model Robbin Young where Guccifer 2.0 claims that Seth Rich was his source for the leaks.
