The Washington Post Set to Splash (Updated)
Page one of the Metro section in Sunday’s Washington Post promotes a washingtonpost.com exclusive investigation of the Wone murder entitled “Murder on Swann Street.”
The above-the-fold tease:
“In a fashionable Dupont Circle home on a sweltering midsummer evening in 2006, a successful young lawyer named Robert Wone, an overnight guest, is found stabbed to death in bed.
The housemates he was visiting – three professional, highly educated men, a self-described “polyamorous family” – immediately fall under suspicion. But how could they have done it? And why would they?
Three years later, the questions linger as investigators try to prove a bizarre theory of what happened that night and as the lore surrounding the murder continues to grow.
In a two-part narrative, The Washington Post examines the tortuous parlor mystery at 1509 Swann Street, NW, an intriguing, vexing whodunit with strange sexual overtones and clues and characters fit for a pulp novel.”
Bulleted highlights include: a diagram of the house recreating the scene and path that may have been taken by the “intruder;” biographies of the principals; the original Ward affidavit; a time line of the major events; and the audio of Zaborsky’s 9-1-1 call.
Monday was to have been Robert’s 35th birthday and we’ll mark it by celebrating his life and achievements throughout the week.
