Rich’s killer remains on the loose, and for months now a group of George Washington University grad students, called the Profiling Project, have been digging into the case.
The Profiling Project released their initial report on the investigation Tuesday in press conference. Read the full report here:
EXCLUSIVE: A look inside ‘Profiling Project: Seth Rich’
Brad Bauman, the spokesperson for the Rich family, issued this response to the report Tuesday:
“The Rich family was not provided a copy of the preliminary report, never saw the report or was otherwise consulted in the preparation of the report. I received the report a half an hour before it was made public thus depriving myself, the family or the family’s lawyers any reasonable time (to) review it. As noted, by the report’s methodology, ‘The Profiling Project’ was given no special access to any materials, evidence or persons and due to case sensitivity, conducted only informal, limited interviews. Given that fact, the family hopes that the general public takes the findings at face value – valuable experience in research collection and report writing for students at George Washington University but in no way should take any findings contained within as new, credible or otherwise lending credence to conspiracy theories surround the circumstances of Seth’s death. We further hope that this doesn’t continue to impede the Metropolitan Police Department’s ability to find the killers and give folks who might have information to their arrest cover to stay silent.”
The Profiling Project is an independent, nonpartisan unit comprised of forensic experts and George Washington University graduate students who have been investigating the murder of Seth Rich.
