The Profiling Project, the independent, nonpartisan and autonomous unit investigating the mysterious unsolved murder of Seth Rich, announced today that to catch the killer or killers, the group will stage a re-enactment of the murder on Tuesday, August 1 funded by Jack Burkman.
Mirroring a Hollywood set, complete with lights, cameras and actors, the group says known facts of the Seth Rich case will be coupled with various probable scenarios to act out what happened that night. It will be open to the media.
“Reenactments help catch killers. We must therefore rise to the occasion and give Washington, D.C. and this nation one of the finest crime reenactments ever done,” says lobbyist/lawyer Jack Burkman, director of The Profiling Project.
One year ago today, DNC staffer Seth Rich was fatally shot in his D.C. neighborhood, creating a news story full of theories, suspicions and controversy. There have been no arrests and there are no known suspects.
Burkman vows he and the Project will not stop until this case is solved.
“Never has there been such a high-profile case with a complete lack of information released by police. It’s almost appears as though they don’t want this case solved,” says Burkman. “Police continue to say it was random and that it was a robbery gone bad yet nothing was taken. There’s something not right and I’m not going to quit until we get to the truth of who is responsible for the killing.”
Late last month, The Profiling Project released an 80-page report on its preliminary findings. Chief among them: the facts don’t support that the killing was random; that it was likely a hit.
“Just about everything in this case doesn’t add up,” says Burkman. “I am deeply troubled by it and our community should be too. That is why I won’t let up.”
In addition to The Profiling Project, Burkman, a GOP lobbyist and lawyer, has put up $105-thousand in reward money—the largest single contribution from an individual. He has also erected billboards in the neighborhood, created the website whokilledseth.com and filed suit against the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), among others, to force the release of more evidence publicly, including videotapes of the crime.
