Arkancide: List of Clinton associates who died mysteriously or committed suicide

The MSM had a meltdown when President Trump hinted at the “arkancide” of Jeffrey Epstein when he retweeted Terrence K. Williams’ August 10 tweet:

Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen

#JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead

I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this!

RT [retweet] if you’re not Surprised

Urban Dictionary defines “arkancide” as:

  1. The favored method of getting rid political enemies in the state of Arkansas. When the medical examiners explain away two bodies filled with bullets as a case of suicide, it’s obvious they caught a case of arkancide.
  2. When you attempt to testify against Hillary Clinton, and then your house explodes.
  3. When a person who was criminally linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton dies of what looks to be a “suicide”, while being held in Federal custody, but that person was of sound mine, and was healthy.

There is even a website called Arkancide that, to my surprise, hasn’t yet been taken down.

The third definition for “arkancide” certainly applies to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, 66, who, we are told, committed suicide-by-hanging in his Manhattan federal detention cell on August 10, 2019, although he should have been on suicide watch. See:

William “Bill” Clinton, 72, was Attorney General of Arkansas (1977-1979), Governor of Arkansas (1983-1992) and President of the United States (1993-2001). His wife, Hillary Rodham,71, was U.S. senator from New York (2001-2009), Secretary of State (2009-2013), and the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee in the 2016 election.

Below is a chronological list of Clinton associates who allegedly suicided themselves before testifying or died under mysterious circumstances, compiled from CBS Las Vegas and Gateway Pundit and supplemented by sources (embedded) I found:

  1. Suzanne Coleman – Reportedly had an affair with Clinton when he was Arkansas Attorney General (Snopes says he was her law professor). Died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head in February 1977; ruled a suicide. Was 7½ months pregnant at the time of her death. No autopsy was performed.
  2. Barry Seal: An ex-TWA pilot who became a major drug smuggler for the Medellín Cartel, operating from Mena Airport, Arkansas, when Bill Clinton was governor. Became a DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) informant after he was convicted of smuggling charges. Murdered in February 1986 by contract killers hired by Pablo Escobar, head of the Medellín Cartel.
  3. Don Henry: A 16-year-old boy who, with his friend Kevin Ives (see #4 below), was hit by a cargo train in Alexander, Arkansas in August 1987. Their deaths were initially ruled an accident, but were later ruled homicides after the parents of the boys insisted on a second autopsy. A pathologist ruled Henry’s shirt showed evidence of a stab wound. It is said the boys had accidentally stumbled upon Barry Seal’s drug smuggling operations at Mena Airport. One week before and again on the same night the boys died, a man wearing military fatigues was spotted near the train tracks. According to Snopes, a 1988 Saline County grand jury determined the boys were murdered and their bodies afterwards laid on the tracks, but no other conclusions were reached and no indictments were returned. Snopes says there was “nothing that ties Ives and Henry to Clinton” and that “In a 25 May 1990 hearing before U.S. Magistrate Henry Jones Jr., Katherine Brightop said her ex-boyfriend Paul William Criswell told her” he and three other men had beaten the two boys to death  after they caught the boys trying to steal cocaine. 
  4. Kevin Ives:  A 17-year-old boy who, with his friend Don Henry (above), were killed by a train in August 1987. Many individuals with information on the Henry/Ives case died in suspicious circumstances, including:
    1. Keith Coney: Died when his motorcycle slammed into the back of a truck in May 1988.
    2. Keith McMaskle: Died in November 1988, stabbed 113 times. Snopes says that in August 1989, Ronald Shane Smith was sentenced to ten years for the murder of McMaskle.
    3. Gregory Collins: Found shot in the woods in January 1989.
    4. Jeff Rhodes: Shot twice in the head and found burnt in a dumpster in April 1989. Snopes says Rhodes had earlier told his father he feared for his life because he’d witnessed a narcotics transaction, and that in July 1989 Frank Pilcher was arrested for Rhodes’ murder.
    5. Jordan Ketelson: Found shot in the front seat of his pickup truck in June 1990. All Snopes says is that “21-year-old Jordan Ketelsen died on 25 June 1990.”
    6. Richard Winters : Killed by a man using a sawed-off shotgun in a set-up robbery in July 1989.
    7. James Milan: No date of death. Found decapitated. Snopes says that Milam’s daughter-in-law insisted Milam was murdered, but that Milam had died three months before the Ives and Henry murders.
  5. Danny Casolaro: Freelance reporter working to uncover the leads of several then-rumored Clinton scandals including activities at Mena Airport and the corrupt Arkansas Development Finance Authority. Found dead in his hotel bathroom in August 1991 with both wrists slashed, although he had repeatedly informed his family and friends if he met such a fate it would not be suicide. Ruled a suicide.
  6. C. Victor Raiser II: A major player in the Clinton fund raising organization; died in a private plane crash in July 1992.
  7. Paul Tulley – Democratic National Committee Political Director found dead in a hotel room in Little Rock, Arkansas in September 1992. Described by Clinton as a “dear friend and trusted advisor”.
  8. Paula Grober: Clinton’s speech interpreter for the deaf and traveled with him from 1978 until her death in December 1992 in a one car accident. There were no witnesses.
  9. James Wilson: Found dead in May 1993 from an apparent hanging suicide. He was reported to have ties to Whitewater.
  10. Paul Wilcher: Attorney investigating corruption at Mena Airport with Danny Casolaro. Found dead on a toilet in his Washington DC apartment in June 1993, a month after writing a letter to then-US Attorney General Janet Reno alleging that the CIA was killing people to cover up mind control experiments, and that the Waco incident was one of these events.
  11. Vince Foster – Former White House counselor and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock’s Rose Law firm. Died of a gunshot wound to the head in July 1993; ruled a suicide.
  12. Jon Parnell Walker: Whitewater investigator for Resolution Trust Corporation. Jumped to his death from his Arlington ,Virginia apartment balcony in August 1993.
  13. Jerry Parks: Head of Clinton’s gubernatorial security team in Little Rock. Gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock in September 1993. Park’s son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton and had threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house.
  14. Steven Dickson: A Kansas lawyer who died (with Stanley Heard, #15 below) in a small plane crash in September 1993. Washington Post says “authorities” said Dickson had participated the previous day in a briefing on the Clinton administration’s health care plan.
  15. Stanley Heard: An Arkansas chiropractor said by some sites to be Chairman of the National Chiropractic Health Care Advisory Committee, served on Bill Clinton’s advisory council and personally treated Clinton’s mother, stepfather and brother. Died with his attorney Steven Dickson in a small plane crash in September 1993.
  16. Edward Willey Jr.: Clinton fundraiser found dead in November 1993 deep in the woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide. Died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton had groped her in the Oval Office in the White House.
  17. Gandy Baugh: Attorney for Bill Clinton’s friend Dan Lasater. Died by jumping out a window of a tall building in January 1994. Dan Lasater was a convicted cocaine distributor and a longtime Clinton supporter and campaign donor.
  18. James Bunch: Died from a gunshot suicide in February 1994. He had a “Black Book” of names of influential people who visited prostitutes in Texas and Arkansas.
  19. Hershell Friday: An Arkansas lawyer who was on Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign finance committee. Died in March 1994 when his plane crashed in an attempted landing.
  20. Kathy Ferguson: Ex-wife of Arkansas state trooper Danny Ferguson. Found dead in May 1994 in her living room with a gunshot to her head. It was ruled a suicide even though there were several packed suitcases, as if she was going somewhere. Danny Ferguson brought Paula Jones to Bill Clinton’s hotel room and was a co-defendant in Jones’ harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton. Kathy Ferguson was a possible corroborating witness for Paula Jones.
  21. Bill Shelton: Police officer and fiancé of Kathy Ferguson who was critical of her suicide ruling. Found dead at Ferguson’s grave site in June 1994 of a gunshot wound behind his ear. Ruled a suicide.
  22. Stanley Huggins: A partner in a Memphis law firm found dead in June 1994 reportedly from viral pneumonia. Huggins headed a 1987 examination into the loan practices of Madison Savings & Loan. He produced a 300-400 page report that has never been made public. Snopes claims that Dr. Richard Callery, Delaware’s top medical examiner, said Huggins had died from viral myocarditis and bronchial pneumonia, and that University of Delaware police officer Joel Ivory said his exhaustive investigation of Huggins’ death turned up “no sign at all of foul play.”
  23. Florence Martin: An accountant working for the CIA who had documents and paperwork detailing a $1.5 million Caymans bank  account for drug-smuggler Barry Seals. Found dead in her home in Texas in October 1994, with three gunshots to her head through a pillow. According to Snopes, Martin worked the graveyard shift at a convenience store. In 2012, Jack Wesley Melton was charged with Martin’s murder; DNA found at the scene was matched to him, leading to his arrest.
  24. Ron Brown: Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman. Reported to have died by impact in a plane crash in April 1996. A pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown’s skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors.
  25. Charles Meissner: Assistant Secretary of Commerce who gave a special security clearance to John Huang, a deputy assistant secretary for international economic affairs in Bill Clinton’s Commerce Department before he (Huang) became a chief fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee in 1996. Meissner died in the same plane crash as Ron Brown in April 1996.
  26. Barbara Wise: Commerce Department secretary who worked closely with Ron Brown and John Huang. Found dead in her locked Commerce Department office in November 1996, her body bruised and partially clothed. Snopes claims that “A thorough investigation uncovered no evidence of foul play or suicide. Wise had a history of frequent and severe health problems, including liver ailments, and her death was attributed to natural causes.”
  27. Mary Mahoney: Worked on Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign and worked as an intern during Clinton’s first presidential term. Murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown, reportedly just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment in the White House.
  28. James McDougal: Clintons’ convicted Whitewater partner who died of an apparent heart attack in March 1998 while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr’s investigation.
  29. Johnny Lawhorn, Jr.: A mechanic whose repair shop was ripped by a tornado in the spring of 1997, which opened up the trunk of a car containing a box of Whitewater records, including a copy of a $27,000 cashiers check payable to Bill Clinton. Lawhorn turned the box of documents over to the FBI. In March 1998, after driving less than ¼ of a mile, Lawhorn and a friend were killed when his car hit a utility pole at a high rate of speed.
  30. Seth Rich: DC staffer who leaked damaging DNC emails to Wikileaks, including an email showing the DNC had sabotaged Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign to favor Hillary Clinon. Rich was “robbed” (his wallet was intact) and shot to death on the streets of Washington, DC, on July 10, 2016.
  31. Jeffrey Epstein: Committed suicide-by-hanging in his Manhattan federal detention cell on August 10, 2019. Flight logs of Epstein’s private jet show Bill Clinton had flown on it at least 26 times. Reportedly, the FBI also has evidence that Hillary Clinton had visited Epstein’s private island.

Clinton bodyguards who are dead include:

  1. Major William S. Barkley, Jr.: Died on May 19, 1993 in a helicopter crash in the woods near Quantico, Va.
  2. Col. William Densberger: Killed on Feb. 23, 1993, in a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter crashed in Weisbaden, Germany. No cause was ever determined.
  3. Sgt. Brian Hanley: Killed in the May 1993 helicopter crash.
  4. Col. Robert Kelly: Killed in the Feb. 1993 helicopter crash.
  5. Conway LeBleu: Killed in the Clinton FBI assault on Waco in February 1993.
  6. Todd McKeehan: Killed in Waco in February 1993.
  7. Luther Parks: Head of Clinton’s Gubernatorial security team in Little Rock. Gunned down in his car at an intersection near Jacksonville, Arkansas on September 26, 1993.
  8. Captain Scott J . Reynolds: Killed in the May 1993 helicopter crash.
  9. Spec. Gary Rhodes: Killed in the Feb. 1993 helicopter crash.
  10. Major General William Robertson: Killed in the Feb. 1993 helicopter crash.
  11. Sgt. Tim Sabel: Killed in the May 1993 helicopter crash.
  12. Alan Whicker: Oversaw Bill Clinton’s Secret Service detail. Died in the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19th 1995.
  13. Robert Williams: Killed in Waco in February 1993.
  14. Steve Willis: Killed in Waco in February 1993.

There are other Arkancides in the three years between Seth Rich’s death on July 10, 2016 and Jeffrey Epstein’s on August 10, 2019. I will add those to this post later because researching them will take time. If you know who they are, please share the information, including source link(s), in a comment. Thank you!

FBI memo shows murdered Seth Rich's laptop contained DNC emails

Tue, 30 May 2017 12:42:22 +0000

eowyn2

Joe Biggs is a US Army Retired Staff Sergeant who was a reporter for InfoWars, but is now a Texas-based independent journalist and a contributor to the blog BAM (Borderland Alternative Media).

Biggs was given by an FBI source a fascinating FBI memo that, though heavily redacted, strongly suggests Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich indeed was the whistleblower who provided thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks, among which are emails showing the DNC deliberately undermined Bernie Sanders’ campaign to favor Hillary Clinton. See:

Biggs writes in his BAM post of May 26, 2017:

If the Seth Rich murder was just an armed robbery why was the FBI looking into it? why is the mainstream media so hell-bent on shutting this story down? Why is Sean Hannity being silenced for even covering the murder of Rich? There are many unanswered questions but hopefully this FBI memo can be the first step into uncovering the truth behind the murder of Seth Rich.

In a heavily redacted memo, released to me by a source within the FBI, we see Seth Rich’s name. The Email states that [Rich’s] laptop contained DNC and Wikileaks information.

At the bottom right [of the FBI memo] it has code that can be used to look up the official FBI memo SCRDC-408

What that code means is name of person being looked into. “SCR” Seth Conrad Rich. Location “DC” with “408” documents. Any FBI Memo, if it’s a target of an investigation will show a code that can be used by journalists to request a FOIA. So FOIA experts can use that code and obtain a less redacted version.

Below is the redacted classified FBI memo (I supplied the red underlining). Note the following:

  • The memo was dated July 15, 2016, five days after Seth Rich was shot on Sunday morning at about 4:19 am in the residential Columbia Heights area of Washington, DC.
  • The memo made mention of “DC police” gaining “custody” of Seth Rich’s laptop computer (“scr laptop”).
  • The memo said “data obtained” from the laptop included “detailed DNC” “emails”.
  • The memo made mention of “Wikileaks”.

Judicial Watch has taken up the Seth Rich case and should, referring to the code “SCRDC-408”, make a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to the FBI for the unredacted memo.

CNN attacks GOP Congressman for calling for a federal investigation of Seth Rich's murder

Fri, 26 May 2017 19:30:56 +0000

eowyn2

On May 24, 2017, speaking on CNN, Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) refuted the charge that the Russian government had interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump’s campaign.

Farenthold drew attention instead to Seth Rich, a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, as the likely whistleblower who leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. In the early morning hours of Sunday, July 10, 2016, Rich was shot in the residential Columbia Heights section of Washington, DC. Still alive and conscious when responding police arrived at the crime scene, Rich was declared dead after he was brought to a local hospital.

See:

Farenthold told CNN:

“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating. There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”

For calling for an investigation into the murder of a DNC staffer which remains unsolved more than 10 months later, Farenthold was pounced on and cut off by CNN news anchor John Berman.

As recounted by Alicia Powe for WND:

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, the ‘insider job’ – what are you referring to here?” asked CNN’s John Berman.

“There’s stuff circulating on the Internet. My question is, why …” the congressman continued, but he was again cut off by Berman.

“What’s circulating on the Internet that you think is worthy of a congressional investigation? Because the D.C. police are investigating this, and so far they haven’t said there’s anything there” to suggest any DNC-link to Rich’s murder, Berman demanded.

The fourth-term congressman noted that the DNC denied the FBI’s “multiple requests” to examine the hacked computers. Instead, the DNC hired a third party organization, CrowdStrike, to perform an analysis.

“We’re relying only on the report of somebody that the DNC contracted to examine their computer rather than having federal officials [examine them],” Farenthold told CNN. “To me, we need to let the feds look at it.” […]

One private investigator told WND he has reason to believe the Metropolitan Police Department is hiding key evidence from the public and acting in collusion with the Washington, D.C., mayor to make the investigation go away. Another private investigator probing the case claimed former DNC interim chairwoman Donna Brazile contacted police and Rich’s family, demanding to know why the detective was “snooping” into Rich’s death.

Hey, CNN and John Berman.

Your prickly defensiveness is most noteworthy. What are you afraid a federal investigation would uncover? The truth?

Murder of Seth Rich: Our hope is now in Judicial Watch

Wed, 24 May 2017 00:14:29 +0000

eowyn2

Kim Dotcom is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur and political party founder who resides in Auckland, New Zealand. He claims that “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved,” and promised that he would release a full statement on Rich’s murder.

27-year-old Seth Rich was the disillusioned Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, believed to have leaked thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks, who was murdered in the early morning of last July 10, in a residential Washington, D.C. neighborhood. The Democrats insist that the DNC emails had been hacked by Russia or agents in collusion with Moscow.

After teasing and making us wait for two days, this morning Kim Dotcom released his much anticipated “statement” on Seth Rich — the 27-year-old DNC staffer who was murdered last July 20 — which turned out to be something of an anticlimax. This is his statement:

#SethRich was a hero

I know that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC leak.

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

“He wanted to change that from the inside.”

I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

Our hope now is in Judicial Watch, the D.C.-based citizens’ watchdog group.

President of Judicial Watch (JW) Tom Fitton says his organization is now investigating the murder of Seth Rich. Last week, JW filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and the D.C. Mayor’s Office. JW also has a FOI request to the FBI about the alleged DNC hack. Fitton says:

“You can trust Judicial Watch to get to the bottom of this issue…and to get the documents directly so that you and the American people can figure out whether or not there needs to be a controversy about this tragic murder, or whether there’s something more than meets the eye.”

Proof that manager of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive visited White House 4 days earlier

Sat, 20 May 2017 15:08:43 +0000

eowyn2

Yesterday, I published the post “Owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive, may have visited Obama White House 4 days earlier,” in which I showed that White House Logs have a “Joseph P. Capone” visiting the Obama White House on July 6, 2016 — four days before DNC staffer Seth Rich was assassinated in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his apartment in Washington, D.C.

Rich’s behavior that night suggests he had been drugged:

  • According to Daily Mail, “Rich was unusually drunk. The 27-year-old DNC staffer could normally throw back Bell’s beer for hours without a problem, but that night he was uncharacteristically unsteady on his feet as he made his way out the door.”
  • “That was just not Seth. I never saw him drunk or even tipsy.” (Newsweek)

Both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 had said Rich was the source of thousands of DNC emails that WikiLeaks published, to damaging effect on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

See “Arkancide: Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to WikiLeaks

According to White House Logs, on July 6, 2016, a “Joseph P. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of four, beginning at 12 noon and ending at 11:59 pm. The meeting location was the East Wing of the White House. The appointment (number U38825) had been made a week before on June 29, 2016. The other three people in Capone’s group were Allesandra J. Capone, Michael R. Capone, and Kymberlie N. Jeffery.

In my post yesterday, I asked if Joseph P. Capone is Joe Capone, the general manager of Lou’s City Bar that Rich had patronized before he was shot.

Here’s proof that the “Joseph P. Capone” who visited the White House on July 6, 2016, four days before Seth Rich was murdered, is indeed Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone.

The proof is a pic that Joe Capone tweeted on July 6, 2016, the day of his White House visit. But you won’t find that pic/tweet on Capone’s Twitter account because he appears to have deleted all tweets after May 18, 2016. Fortunately, an enterprising citizen journalist captured a screenshot of the tweet and posted it to 4chan:

↓ Click image to enlarge ↓

As you can see, the pic was taken from INSIDE the White House, looking out onto the South Lawn fountain and, far away, the domed Thomas Jefferson Memorial.

Here’s a screenshot I took from Google Map, showing the White House at the bottom, the fountain, and the Jefferson Memorial at the top:

Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone must be a very special person to get a meeting in the White House’s East Wing, which Wikipedia says “serves as office space for the First Lady and her staff”.

The MSM are strenuously avoiding any mention of Seth Rich, but are using the alleged but groundless Russia-Trump collusion to deflect attention away from Rich’s murder. Please help me publicize about this brave and principled young man via email and social media.

Update (May 20, 2017):

According to George Webb, an Alt. Media reporter, who visited Lou’s City Bar and interviewed Joe Capone (with the latter’s lawyer present), Capone said he wasn’t in the bar the night of July 9, 2016, but was in Ocean City, MD with his family (beg. 2:05 mark), and that “friends” were talking with Seth Rich in the ambulance on the ride to the hospital (2:56 mark)

Owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive, may have visited Obama White House 4 days earlier

Fri, 19 May 2017 15:00:13 +0000

eowyn2

At a little past 4 AM early Sunday morning on July 10, 2016, 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich was shot about a block from his apartment in a residential neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

More than 10 months after he was shot, Rich’s murder is still unsolved.

Both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 had said Rich was the source of thousands of DNC emails that WikiLeaks published, to damaging effect on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

See “Arkancide: Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to WikiLeaks

According to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s Public Incident report, responding to the sound of gunshots at 2134 Flagler Pl. NW., police officers were on the scene by 4:20 AM and found Rich laying on the ground in the southwest corner of the intersection of W St. and Flagler Pl. NW., having been shot in his back but alive and conscious. He was taken to Washington Hospital Center where, at 5:57 AM or an hour and 37 minutes after police had first found him, was pronounced dead by an attending physician.

See “Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was alive and conscious when found by police

According to an anonymous poster on 4chan who claims to be an ER surgery resident at Washington Hospital Center who had operated on Rich’s “small” non-fatal gun wounds in his liver and bowel, Rich was stable and in recovery after his surgery, only to die under suspicious “fishy” circumstances hours later.

See “ER surgeon at Seth Rich’s hospital says his wounds were not fatal

According to a Daily Mail investigation, before he was shot, Rich was a patron at Lou’s City Bar, a sports pub he frequented five or six nights a week. Daily Mail reporter Alana Goodman writes:

“Rich showed up alone that evening and sat at his usual leather stool in the corner of the bar. He was a regular at the pub, often showing up straight from the office in a shirt and tie and lugging his laptop bag.”

Rich left Lou’s City Bar at 1:45 AM (the bar closes at 2 AM on Saturday nights).  Goodman recounts:

“Clearly inebriated, he was offered a ride home but refused, saying he was heading to Wonderland, another bar about 10 minutes walk away. No one at Wonderland could recall seeing Seth that morning but the bar shut up at 2:30.”

The general manager of Lou’s City Bar is Joe Capone. See his LinkedIn page here, and his Twitter @joecapone0206 here.

Now, citizen journalists on 4chan have uncovered that the general manager of Lou’s City Bar, Joe Capone, may have visited the Obama White House at least three times, the last visit being a mere four days before Seth Rich was murdered:

  1.  White House Logs show that on November 12, 2011, a “Joseph A. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of 356, beginning 11:30 am and ending at 11:59 pm.
  2. White House Logs show that on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, a “Joe Capone” visited the White House at 1:30 pm, as part of a group of 19 people. The appointment (number U43297) was made by caller Alison Kula at 12:00 pm the day before, on October 1, 2012 . The appointment was scheduled to begin on October 2 at 1:30 pm with Felice Gorordo in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building 430bc. According to , Capone et al.‘s visit ended at 11:59 pm. This was Capone’s first visit since records were released in 2009.
  3. White House Logs show that on July 6, 2016, a “Joseph P. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of four, beginning at 12 noon and ending at 11:59 pm. The meeting location was the East Wing of the White House. The appointment (number U38825) had been made a week before on June 29, 2016. The other three people in Capone’s group were Allesandra J. Capone, Michael R. Capone, and Kymberlie N. Jeffery. If this Joseph P. Capone is Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone, then he must be a very special person to get a meeting in the White House’s East Wing, which Wikipedia says “serves as office space for the First Lady and her staff”.

Note: The 11:59 pm may be a default ending time.

Are 2011 White House visitor “Joe Capone”, 2012 White House visitor “Joseph A. Capone” and 2016 White House visitor “Joseph P. Capone” the same person?

Spokeo found a Joseph A. Capone, 56, who lives in Vienna, VA, but has a P.O. Box in Washington, DC. Vienna, VA is 17.2 miles by car from Washington, DC.

According to Email Finder, there’s a Joseph P. Capone, who is in his mid-40s and lives in Olney, MD, which is 18 minutes by car from Washington, DC.

Update (May 20, 2017):

There is photographic proof that the “Joseph P. Capone” who visited the White House on July 6, 2016,  four days before Seth Rich was murdered, is indeed Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone.

Please see “Proof that owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive visited White House 4 days earlier“.

ER surgeon at Seth Rich's hospital says his gun wounds were not fatal

Thu, 18 May 2017 23:25:37 +0000

Yesterday, on the Internet chat forum 4chan, an individual who goes by the alias of Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) claimed to be a surgery resident at Washington Hospital Center who had attended to Seth Rich — the 27-year-0ld Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer who leaked thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Rich was shot in the early morning hours (around 4 a.m.) on Sunday, July 10, in a residential area of Washington, D.C. Although police say Rich was the victim of a “random burglary,” his killer(s) left behind Rich’s wallet, watch and cell phone.

Unless Anonymous comes forth to reveal his/her identity, there is no way for us to know if Anonymous is who he/she claims to be. However, as you will read for yourself, I find Anonymous to be credible because of the display of medical knowledge and use of medical shorthand terminology.

This is what Anonymous said:

  • Seth Rich was shot twice in the back.
  • He sustained a “small injury” to his liver and “several small bowel injuries” — none of which was fatal.
  • He was taken to the operating room, where his injuries were treated.
  • He was then moved to ICU (Intensive Care Unit) where he received blood transfusion. He was stable, his blood pressure normal.
  • 8 hours after Rich arrived at the hospital, the place “swarmed” with law enforcement officers. Everyone, except the attending physician and a few nurses, was kicked out of the ICU. There were no visiting hours, which is abnormal for ICU.
  • That morning, Anonymous and the other doctors were instructed not to make rounds (visits) on “the VIP that came in last night” (Seth Rich).
  • When Rich died, no one other than the attending physician was allowed to see him. There was no code alert or call for a cardiopulmonary resuscitation team. Although Anonymous was with a patient in the next room, he/she was blocked from attending to Rich.
  • At the time, Anonymous couldn’t understand why the patient Rich was treated that way and thought the whole thing to be “fishy”. Later, when he found out that the patient was Seth Rich, Anonymous “was terrified”.

4th year surgery resident here who rotated at WHC (Washington Hospital Center) last year, it won’t be hard to identify me but I feel that I shouldn’t stay silent.

Seth Rich was shot twice, with 3 total gunshot wounds (entry and exit, and entry). He was taken to the OR emergently where we performed an exlap and found a small injury to segment 3 of the liver which was packed and several small bowel injuries (pretty common for gunshots to the back exiting the abdomen) which we resected ~12cm of bowel and left him in discontinuity (didn’t hook everything back up) with the intent of performing a washout in the morning. He did not have any major vascular injuries otherwise. I’ve seen dozens of worse cases than this which survived and nothing about his injuries suggested to me that he’d sustained a fatal wound.

Note: “OR” means operating room; “exlap” refers to exploratory laparotomy — is a surgical operation where the abdomen is opened and the abdominal organs examined for injury or disease. It is the standard of care in various blunt and penetrating trauma situations in which there may be multiple life-threatening injuries; “resected” means cut off or remove.

In the meantime he was transferred to the ICU and transfused 2 units of blood when his post-surgery crit came back ~20. He was stable and not on any pressors, and it seemed pretty routine. About 8 hours after he arrived we were swarmed by LEOs and pretty much everyone except the attending and a few nurses was kicked out of the ICU (disallowing visiting hours -normally every odd hour, eg 1am, 3am, etc- is not something we do routinely). It was weird as hell. At turnover that morning we were instructed not to round on the VIP that came in last night (that’s exactly what the attending said, and no one except for me and another resident had any idea who he was talking about).

Note: “post-surgery crit” is post-surgery critical care, referring to the patient’s  hematocrit level, i.e., the percentage of red blood cells circulating in the blood; “pressor” means “tending to increase blood pressure”; “LEOs” is law enforcement officers; “not to round” means not to make bedside visits.

No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and while I can’t say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don’t understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I’m just one low level doc. Something’s fishy though, that’s for sure.

Note: “No code was called” means no emergency alert was sounded for a cardiopulmonary resuscitation team; “/pol/” refers to “politically incorrect” posts on 4chan.

A commenter challenged Anonymous:

prove you are not a larper.
what are the list of medications you administered throughout the entire process?

Note: “a larper” is someone who engages in larp or live action role playing, i.e., someone online pretending to be someone else.

When he [Seth Rich] arrived to the trauma ward he had LR running, I don’t keep up with how much he got but less than 2 liters before we rolled to the OR.

Note: “LR” is Lactated Ringers (solution), a common fluid replacement for patients who have lost blood or other body fluids; “PRBC” is packed red blood cells; “FFP” is fresh frozen plasma.

No transfusion was done in trauma; the massive transfusion protocol was started because he was hypotensive on arrival but by the time the cooler (4u PRBC, 2u FFP) was ready we were on the way to the OR and honestly I don’t remember if he got any of it beforehand; he responded well to just IVF resuscitation so we went ahead with the surgery any just ended up giving him 2 units afterwards (the crit we got in trauma was returned just after we left and was low, ~24 IIRC but it wasn’t communicated to us… teamwork fail for sure but that can happen when we’re rushing to the OR)

Note: “hypotensive” means abnormally low blood pressure.

As for the rest of the meds? You’d have to ask anesthesia I guess. He didn’t need anything from us in the ICU except a propofol/fentanyl drip to maintain sedation while intubated but that’s pretty par for the course. The important part was that he was hemodynamically stable and not requiring pressors.

I haven’t spoken to the attending who was on staff that night but the other resident I was with that night doesn’t remember it in any clarity (he was called to traumas as part of his rotation but that was ancillary to his ICU -different ICU btw- duties). Basically he said, “yeah that was weird, right?” At the time we were way more concerned with the rising class / new interns (July 1st is a terrifying time to be a patient lol) to make much notice… it always stuck in my head as something super bizarre but it was a long time before I even realized it was Seth Rich. When he arrived he was assigned by our system a trauma number, not a name as his patient ID. I only knew him at that time as Tra### (no freaking way that I remember the actual number). When it came to light who he was a while later I was floored. And terrified.

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:39:36 No.125916400

Nope, nothing in the head so no freaking way we’d CT before going to the OR with a clear intraabdominal GSW. No need to FAST or anything, just stabilize and go to the OR

Note: “CT” is CAT scan; “GSW” is gunshot wound.

One could always just increase the propofol drip or give him a ton of roc and screw with the vent settings. No idea if that happened but it’d be easy if you have the right meds and access

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:53:57 No.125918189

He had two holes in his right flank and one in the left upper quadrant. In trauma you always assume by protocol that 3 holes = 3 bullets but it was pretty clear that he was shot twice by the trajectory of the bullet (eg, his liver injury). I’ve also seen enough GSWs to know that the media doesn’t get the number right every time.

Yeah, I’m not going to do that. Way too dangerous.

Alright anons it’s been swell but I’ll be gone for the next few hours for regular residency meeting / journal club BS. Take everything you read especially from the MSM with a grain of salt as usual but don’t stop digging.
