We received two comments to our post of the legal defense letter that focused on Joe Price’s honesty when he wrote “we have no choice but to sell and liquidate every asset”in order to finance their legal defense. Yet from all records it shows that Joe Price and Victor Zaborsky’s Florida property has not been sold. In fact, after Dylan Ward returned to DC, they signed a one year rental agreement on the property. From the look of things, they clearly haven’t liquidated “every asset.” Now maybe they are waiting for the Florida real estate market, which has been severely hit by high foreclosures, to stabilize. If that is the case, then reason would lead one to believe that they can afford to wait before needing to sell, which makes their urgent claim of having “no choice to sell and liquidate every asset” at the best less than honest, and at the worst, out right dubious.
This is the second time in less than two months that Joe Price’s honesty has been called into question. In December, Assistant US Attorney Glen Kirschner accused Joe Price of lying to the authorities that at the time of the murder Price claimed he never used drugs yet the subsequent investigation has found that Price possessed and/or distributed crystal methamphetamine and cocaine. His lawyer, Bernie Grimm, said the allegations are “completely false.” Furthermore, the affidavit in support of arrest for Dylan Ward notes that a police dog trained to detect the presence of illegal drugs found a dresser in Price and Zaborsky’s bedroom, as well as cabinet in Ward’s room where illegal drugs had once been located. However, the only drug found in the house was an Ecstasy tablet in Ward’s bedroom, so what the dog noticed was the PRIOR presence of illicit drugs.
Either way, it must be difficult to have one’s honesty questioned when heading into a case concerning obstuction of justice, tampering of evidence and conspiracy. — Posted by David
