“What’s the Story with Dylan?”
We’ve seen the evolution of the Swann Street defendants’ legal representation; Price and Zaborsky first reaching out to friend Kathleen Voelker, and Ward’s immediate retaining of David Schertler. MetroWeekly‘s Bob Roehr saw the looming challenges:
Parson acknowledges that with lawyers for the residents having become involved so quickly and the lack of cooperation from Price, Zaborsky and Ward, the department is particularly sensitive to the need to do everything by the book so that the case is not thrown out on a minor technicality.
But for all the quick legal action, it seems something was overlooked by Price: hours upon hours of police interrogation on the night of the murder with no counsel present.
Why did Price, an experienced attorney, waive his and his co-witnesses’ Miranda rights and allow themselves to be submitted to a marathon interrogation, only to later fall behind a legal wall of silence?
And then these curious remarks Price made to the detectives at the end of his interrogation (page 10 of the Ward affidavit); his interest was not with his domestic partner’s well-being, but only in Ward’s:
“I need to go. I would like to see Dylan…. His (Ward’s) attorney is trying to reach him…. What’s the story with Dylan? …I mean – – I’m going to get his attorney to come down here.”
Who was the attorney Price had in mind? How did he know that attorney was trying to reach Ward?
Had Schertler already been lined up? If so, then by whom? That evening, Price was overheard by detectives talking to his brother Michael.
Was Michael Price that wired to be able to get a guy like David Schertler on the phone in the middle of the night?
