The Washington Post Set to Splash  (Updated)

Page one of the Metro section in Sunday’s Washington Post promotes a 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.

    Can’t wait – thanks for the head’s up on the story.

    Tough day for the Wone family coming up, one among many.
