Seth Rich, employed by the DNC, was murdered on July 10, 2016. He had been at Lou’s City Bar, a sport’s bar, until it closed around 1:30AM or so. It is located approximately 3200 feet from Rock Creek. It has been theorized that his death, his murder, was related to a release of material to Wikileaks. A recent article in Newsweek suggests that his death was either murder for hire or a serial killer. This leaves me wondering about the Smiley Face Killer.
“…Duarte and Gannon claimed that the Smiley Face Gang had struck in at least 25 cities in 11 states in the U.S. since about 1997. Virtually all of the 40 victims were athletic white college males; all were last seen leaving a party or bar with alcohol in their systems, then found dead in rivers or streams. Many attended colleges along the Interstate 94 corridor in the Midwest—in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa–and in 22 cases, a Smiley graffiti was scrawled nearby. Each death had been ruled accidental by police….”
There’s a heck of a lot more to it. Several investigators suspect there are far more than 40 victims.
Seth Rich fits the physical profile of the young men who have been murdered.
“…The murderer, according to the Profiling Project, “brought a most likely unregistered firearm to the crime scene, utilized the firearm and most likely carried the firearm away from the crime scene.” The report continues, “That the crime scene appeared to be almost sanitized (no firearms casings were reported to be found, no physical evidence was reported), and that there does not appear to be excessive use of force (as only two shots were reported), the offender does not appear to be psychotic.”
The researchers believe there was just one shooter. That shooter could have been a serial killer or serial murderer, according to the report, which uses the FBI’s definition for an offender who kills two or more people in separate events. “With such a sanitized crime scene and no emotional indications,” the report says, “this is not Offender[’s] first kill.”
As for the conspiracy theories, the Profiling Project says those are unfounded, given that Rich did not die immediately at the scene: “A professional killer, whose sole job would have been to terminate Seth, did not accomplish their mission prior to escaping.”…”
Not all victims of the Smiley Face Killer are found within a body of water. Some have escaped. They are almost always out at night, late, at a bar. Quite often they will be on the phone when approached by who? They are killed approximately 30 days apart. They are almost always male, white, and are ambitious. They are also the best and brightest. The murders are so puzzling and some of the implications so horrifying, there have been investigators who have walked off, refusing to even discuss the subject. They are also terrified.
