The Democratic National Committee staffer shot and killed in Washington, D.C., last summer leaked more than 44,000 emails to WikiLeaks before his death, according to a report.
According to this report, federal law enforcement investigators found 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between DNC leaders from January 2015 to May 2016 were sent by Rich to Gavin MacFayden, an American reporter and WikiLeaks director based in London who is now deceased. That information was found in a FBI forensic report on Rich’s computer done within days of his murder.
Rich was killed July 10 in Washington, D.C., as he walked home. His murder remains unsolved. Rich was shot twice in the back but wasn’t robbed. His wallet, cellphone, keys, watch and necklace were all left on him at the scene of the crime.
Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family, confirmed to Fox News his investigation shows similar information.
