At an Arlington press conference on Tuesday, D.C. lobbyist and attorney Jack Burkman increased the reward to $155,000 for information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s killer and announced new details surrounding his criminal investigation team.
It is now the highest reward offered for information on any crime in D.C., Virginia and Maryland history.
The Profiling Investigative Center, formerly The Profiling Project, has redoubled efforts on the controversial Seth Rich case after former investigator, Kevin Doherty, attacked Burkman in March. In light of the latest push, the organization has also welcomed seasoned criminal investigator Dan Rice to the team.
“We’re on a quest to find answers,” said Burkman. “Despite the adversity, we must renew and double down on our work. We have to find the truth in regards to Seth and now, we have to find out what was behind Mr. Doherty’s actions.”
While following up on a lead for an FBI whistleblower in March, Burkman was shot twice and run down by an SUV at an Arlington hotel. Eye witness reports led police to arrest The Profiling Project’s former investigator, Kevin Doherty, in connection with the attack.
As details of the plot emerged from police, both Burkman and the investigators found themselves troubled by the attack, whether he worked alone, and how his motives could have impacted his work with the Seth Rich case.
“This isn’t a Sherlock Holmes mystery, it’s the tragic, unsolved murder of a young man,” said Burkman. “Before we proceed, we must ensure our work was never corrupted or influenced and that no one else is out there to scuttle this investigation.”
With the help of Rice, the team plans to assess the validity of Doherty’s conclusions and whether he sought to influence the Seth Rich case or had assistance in the attack.
Both a veteran of the military and criminal investigation field, Rice received training and certification from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in 1986 and has led a storied career in complex criminal and counterterrorism cases both domestically and abroad.
Rice specializes in cold cases, death investigations and crime scene processing and management.
The Profiling Investigative Center was launched in 2017 as a private investigation into the murder of Seth Rich. A case which quickly drew controversy and speculation with its proximity to D.C. politics. While efforts on that case continue, the team plans to take on similar unsolved crimes in the future.
