[quote]Police said in response that they believe there is no connection between his death and “his employment at the DNC.” Since that time, Rich’s family have also said publicly that they believe his death wasn’t connected.
But the story picked up again this week with the two reports by Fox outlets. Both stories quoted Rod Wheeler, a former homicide detective at Washington’s Metropolitan Police, saying he had learned that there were emails between Rich and WikiLeaks before his death. Wheeler is a Fox News contributor.
Both reports said that Rich’s family had hired Wheeler as a private investigator — which Rich’s family responded to in its statement by noting he had been paid by a third party, and had not been authorized to speak with the press.[/quote]
So that means that the story has rather large holes - the investigator has a gag order, and Wheeler has been contradicted.
