A manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Democratic National Committee worker Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer told WND that D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night, as part of an investigation into Rich’s murder.
The revelation backs up a claim made by a private investigator who worked on the case who said D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation.
WND also can report that the investigator recently was ordered to “cease and desist” his work on the murder case.
“The police never asked for the surveillance video from that night,” a manager of Lou’s City Bar told WND.
His name is being withheld for this story.
He said the bar’s surveillance video runs in a cycle of 30 days and that, by now, any footage that may have existed of Rich the last night he was seen alive has been taped over.
Furthermore, the manager said police never asked for any other kind of evidence from the bar such as Rich’s bar receipt from that night. The manager did note he wasn’t sure if Rich paid using a credit card or cash.
