Smith was found dead in a Rochester, Minnesota, hotel room on May 14. A Rochester Police Department report seen by CBS News refers to Smith’s death as an “apparent suicide.” The report describes the scene where Smith’s body was found.
On May 4, Smith had told Wall Street Journal reporter Shane Harris about his efforts to secure emails that were deleted from, which included contact with what he believed were Russian hackers. He had previously helped fund opposition research against President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Smith told the Journal that his team found five hacker groups that said they had possession of Clinton’s emails, including two Russian ones. “We knew the people who had these were probably around the Russian government,” Smith told the paper, 10 days later he is dead.
When I spoke to Peter Smith I had no indication that he was ill or planning to take his own life.

A senior writer with the WSJ, Shane Harris, who spoke with Smith shortly before his death tweeted Thursday that he did not detect any signs that would lead people to believe that the GOP operative was unwell or planning to take his own life. And one of Smith’s former employees told the Tribune that the GOP operative was getting treated for a heart condition at the Mayo Clinic, which points to the fact that he was interested in getting better.
According to New York Magazine, it is unlikely that Smith could have been facing financial troubles since he had been involved in managing private equity firms in corporate acquisitions and venture investments for a span of 40 years.
It’s easy to understand why the death-by-suicide theory is not easily bought. Smith had a long history of exposing damaging information on leading candidates from the opposition.
Questions have been raised since then about whether there was foul play involved in his death, and if Smith is just another one of Clinton’s many victims.
Smith’s cause of death is listed as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in confined space with helium,” according to the Tribune. His last will and testament is seven pages long and had been signed in February.
