The story around Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee worker who was shot dead in Washington, D.C., became a conspiracy theory. Some surmised that he was the staffer who leaked e-mails to WikiLeaks and Russia, and was murdered as a part of a cover-up.
The D.C. police said it was a botched robbery attempt and Rich’s family had asked that the conspiracy theories would stop.
Yesterday, Fox News retracted their story about how Rich was the leak in the DNC and that his death may have been part of a cover-up.
