Mary Rich, the mother of Seth Rich, told NPR that there have been no leads to follow in solving the murder case of her son. She said she had promised to fight for justice.

We have stated from Day 1, we will follow the truth, and whoever provides the truth, we will follow this path, according to Mary Rich on NPR. So yet, there has been nothing to do.

In her interview with NPR, she remembered a line from her sons acceptance letter, declaring that he was so grateful to be able to make a difference.

These words are related to my son, according to NPR. These words are also on his cemetery stone.

Joel Rich, his father, said he wanted to make a difference.

The combined trauma of her four children''s death and the attacks by conspiracy theorists caused a deep and lasting distrust, according to Mary Rich.

When the lawsuit was over, our lives would be able to return to a sense of normalcy, according to NPR. People would know and understand that there was a big lie. Since then, we will never forget that we were involved in the trials.

The conspiracy theories, according to Joel Rich, changed the way they live each day.

Joel Rich told NPR that your acting, who you will listen to, and what you do when youre at home, have changed. What''s the impact that these conspiracies have on your life?

In 2020, Joel and Mary Rich reached a settlement with Fox News. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

Richs parents said in a statement at the time they were pleased with the settlement of this issue, and that they intend to use caution in the near future.

The settlement with Fox News has closed another chapter in our attempts to mourn the murder of our beloved Seth, whom we forget every single day. It allows us to progress further from the litigation we initiated in response to a Fox News article in May 2017 and televised statements about Seths'' murder.
