All-Star Break

Max Out

Depending on the amount of information coming in, the first three weeks of the trial have either felt like treading water or swimming against the current.   While trying to keep our heads above water, a few housekeeping tasks have fallen by the wayside.

Robert Eric Wone 1974 - 2006

We try to stay squarely focused on the reason why we’re here; the pursuit of justice for a remarkable young man who in death, was let down by the system.  Over the past year and a half ,we’ve tried our best to tell his story with the help of those who knew him.  Part of Robert’s ongoing story is his continued legacy of service and community by way of the Robert Wone Memorial Trust.

Robert’s family established the Trust, in which funds are distributed to some of his favorite projects and causes.  We ask once again for readers to dig deep and consider a hefty contribution to the Trust.  

Checks may be sent to:

Holtzman Vogel, PLLC
45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100
Warrenton, VA   20186

Before the recent deluge of new readers, in most cases, we had the time to reach out individually and thank new visitors for their interest and and smart takes offered in the comments section.  We’ve fallen behind on that too, and take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks for being part of the effort.  Maybe this week, we’ll catch up and send out some long overdue welcome aboard emails.

We’ve got some ideas in mind for posts during next week’s break, but today we remember the All-Star.  Robert’s 36th birthday was supposed to have been last Monday, June 1, and his and Kathy’s 7th wedding anniversary would’ve been celebrated tomorrow, June 7.

    well in today’s news another low life has been arrested.. perhaps the editors might consider tackling Joran van deer sloot’s arrest in Chile for the death of another young girl..If you remember he was the prime suspect in the death of Natalie Holloway in Aruba 5 years ago to day…

      I think the Van Der Sloot story is important in that it shows that when murderers are able to remain free they may kill again. As long as Wone’s killer(s) remains at large, he/she/they pose a threat to society.

      Another similarity – during the media frenzy surrounding Natalie Holloway’s death there was an insufferable amount of blaming the victim going on.

      Robert Wone and his family have had to endure this, as well.

      Editors, thank you for highlighting the Trust, I’m sending a check today.

    The editors wrote: “We try to stay squarely focused on the reason why we’re hear; the pursuit of justice for a remarkable young man who in death, was let down by the system. ” Were we listening to Robert, or present for him?

    There appears to be a spelling error. Is it an error, or is there a reason for it?

      They like to keep unemployed copy editors in practice 🙂

    Robert’s last few minutes must have been sheer hell. Who would perpetrate such a crime and why was he stabbed?
    Other than my own theories, I don’t get why he was he murdered. Who had the motive?

    Robert was very generous with his volunteer time – very quick to respond, and eager to help. If you think about the high pressure job he had at a law firm, it’s a wonder that he could juggle all the projects with the different nonprofits he was involved, but he did. He was always on the go. After his passing, it was a wonder to hear about other charitable work he was doing. People recognized that Robert was a special spirit when he was alive; thanks for remembering him still.
