The father of a Democratic National Committee staffer shot dead in Washington DC in August has insisted that his son did not pass on incriminating emails to WikiLeaks, despite rumors he is to blame for the leak still circulating six months after his death.

Seth Rich, 27, was gunned down in the affluent Bloomingdale neighborhood of DC in the early hours of July 10 while he was on the phone to his girlfriend after a night out at Lou's City Bar.

Data - Analyst - DNC - Voter - Turnout

Rich worked as a data analyst at the DNC and had built a voter turnout database in the months before his death.

But despite speculation from the public, fueled by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's own comments, Rich's father, Joel, insists that his son did not provide emails to WikiLeaks prior to the 2016 presidential election.

'Anyone - Seth - Way - Problem - Rich

'Anyone who knew Seth knew that wasn't the way he would have handled the problem,' Rich's father, Joel Rich, told Fox News. 'He would not go outside the system.'

During an August interview, Assange suggested the DNC leak may have been the work of an insider. But he told DemocracyNow he didn't know their identity, and wouldn't reveal if he did.

Joel - Rich - Assange - Comments - Washington

Joel Rich called Assange's comments 'bizarre', and says he, like Washington, DC, police, believes that his son's death was the result of a robbery gone wrong.

'The reason Seth was killed is probably because he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,' he said. 'There are all kinds of scenarios, but until something else is proven, these are just scenarios.'

Rich - Difference - World - Joel - Rich

Above all else, Rich wanted to make a difference in the world, Joel Rich said.

'At work, Seth was able to extend his desire to make everyone feel included to the basic right to vote in American elections,' Joel Rich said.
