Monday Movie Matinee
This installment of the Joe Price Anacostia Dialogue is actually the last thirty minutes of his final hour-long interview during the mid-morning hours after Robert’s murder.
This interview began in the 9:00am hour, well after the so called “Mercedes meeting.” That sedan summit, according to the prosecution, occurred in Swann Street neighbor’s Scott Hixson’s car while Price and Zaborsky sat, conferred and “got on message” waiting for Ward to emerge from his interrogation and lie detector test.
At four minutes in (on the tape counter) Waid leaves the room and Price sits for the next several minutes, then at 17:43 he takes a phone call from an unidentified person.
A few minutes later he dials a number, no answer, then knocks on the interrogation room door, no answer.
Then at 21:45, Price calls his brother Michael and we hear half of that brief conversation in which the older brother is given a phone number. He dials it but is interrupted by Detective Brian Kasul.
The first thing Price tells Kasul is that he wants to see Ward. Kasul spoke with Price briefly just to confirm that he was there voluntarily. The interview was over at 10:30am. Price got up to leave and on his way out asked, “What’s the story with Dylan?”
Price’s actual first recorded interview with MPD Detective Daniel Wagner (of “Come to Jesus” fame), will screen in the coming days, so part 1 will come last. Chalk it up to New Math. The tape follows and the interview transcript can be found here (Part II).
