Murdered DNC Staffer's Family Tells Investigator To Shut His Mouth

Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was fatally shot in July. Now, his family is calling on a private investigator to stop speaking publicly about the case. Rod Wheeler is a former Washington DC homicide detective who had been working with the Rich family to solve the murder. The Metropolitan Police Department has said appears to be a botched robbery. But according to BuzzFeed News, conspiracy theorists have claimed the killing was ordered by the Clintons in retaliation for leaking thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. Those theories took off on social media and right-wing websites on Monday. That's when Fox 5 in Washington DC aired an interview in which Wheeler — a Fox News contributor — said he could confirm evidence of emails between Rich and a WikiLeaks contact. Rich's family has strongly rejected Wheeler's claims as false, and beyond that, the family has said that he was bound by a nondisclosure agreement. On Thursday, a lawyer representing the family sent Wheeler a letter to cease and desist all statements related to Rich's death and the investigation.
