Shawn Lucas, a man who served the Democratic National Committee (DNC) with a lawsuit suggesting that the Party heavily favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the primary election, has suddenly died under unspecified circumstances.

The speculations regarding Lucas’ sudden death began emerging on social media in the past week.

​A month earlier, on July 3, Lucas, who backed Sanders in the presidential run, appeared in the viral YouTube video taken by filmmaker Ricardo Villaba. In the footage Lucas serves the legal papers to the Democratic National Headquarters in a case started by Sanders campaigners.

The lawsuit, triggered before the notorious WikiLeaks revelations, charged the DNC then-chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz with fraud. On July 22, a batch of some 20,000 internal DNC emails was made public, confirming the allegations that the organization had been playing into the Clinton camp’s hands.

Lucas was confirmed dead by the company for which he had worked as a process server. In an interview with investigation outlet Snopes, the firm representative said that the young man passed away on August 2, 2016.

According to unconfirmed media reports, the young man’s body was discovered on the floor of his bathroom by his girlfriend. Paramedics, who arrived at the scene at the time, didn’t find any signs of life.

The mysterious death of Lucas is not the first instance of its kind during this election cycle.
