Maybe not the case…
“Ann”, a reader of WMRW.com since its inception, offers her take on the case:
I’ve been following this blog for almost one year. I have always been a “passive reader” because of the big effort I have to do to write in English (I’m not an English- speaker) and also because I have always thought that my theory would be automatically rejected by most of you.
But in view of the little public advances and new features in the investigation, I have decided to share and contrast with you my thoughts about this case.
1. Three years after Robert Wone’s murder, it’s a fact that there seem to be no evidences that Zarbosky, Ward and Price did it.
2. Even if they were at the house, even if they found the body, even if they had strange behavior when the emergency team arrived, even with all the circumstances that seem to point at them as the criminals, and even if they manipulated in some way the crime scene after finding their dead friend…if they haven’t been accused of murder it’s only because there is no irrefutable evidence that they killed Robert.
3. There have been many theories about how could it have happened and why (the reasons), all of them involving the three house mates of Swann street. None of them has been, until now, consistent enough to be brought to a Court. There are many more questions than answers: the lack of blood, the BlackBerry, the semen issue, the time line of the crime… just to mention some of them. And, in addition, I’m sure that the three guys have been put under pressure during the interrogations… But all of them have always insisted on their innocence.
4. So this unsolved crime looks more and more like a perfect crime.
5. Is it possible to make a perfect crime without having planned it? Did they plan in advance to sexually assault their friend, then to kill him and make sure that they would not leave any crime evidence against them?
6. If they hadn’t planned it, but it happened, would they have been able to erase all the crime evidence under those circumstances?
7. I think the answer to both questions is NO. If they had planned it in advance, they would have also foreseen that everybody would point at them, and that the intruder theory would be very hard to believe. And if they did it without having planned it in advance (under drug effects, uncontrolled sexual impulses and other things that I have read at the posts), could they have had the cruelty of attacking a close friend and the callousness to do it in such a way that nobody could prove what happened exactly? I don’t think so.
8. Maybe many of you will call me crazy, but I think more and more strongly about a conspiracy against Robert, planned perfectly to frame the three guys of Swann Street. This sounds more and more plausible to me than all the other theories that I’ve read until now.
9. Why do I think about a conspiracy?
- a. It looks like a perfectly premeditated and planned crime.
- b. Given the time line and the lack of clear evidences to explain the facts, it looks like it was committed with the means and resources to create confusion and sexual theories, maybe to cover the real reasons behind it.
- c. It looks more like the murder was committed by professional assassin(s). They did their job very quick, and very well. And they didn’t leave any trace evidence against them, just traces against the three house mates.
- d. I have been thinking often about Robert: He was a lawyer. He had recently left his former job. He had just started a new one. He was an activist. Did he have some dangerous and powerful enemy from one of his cases at his former job? Maybe in the new job? Did he know something that someone didn’t want him to reveal? What do we know in reality about Rob’s professional and activist contacts and enemies? Has this been investigated? Rob was involved with powerful organizations that probably have powerful enemies (Radio Free Asia, for sure). I don’t think his environment was so smart and innocent. Yes, I’m thinking about mafias. Why not?
- e. So maybe someone wanted to murder Robert, and maybe someone had this horrible request. And they waited for the perfect occasion to avoid any suspicion. The killer or killers decided to simulate a sexually motivated crime when they knew, probably through Rob’s BlackBerry or emails, that he had an appointment with his “non-conventional” friends that night. That was the occasion: they had the potentially guilty parties, a devious motive and time enough (about two weeks) to prepare their operation very carefully.
So this is what I tend to think more and more strongly. That we are all looking at the wrong way. But maybe nobody will have the means to look into this possibility.
Thank you for letting me to share this theory with you.
