Crescat scientia; Vita Excolatur
Thousands have visited this site; hundreds have gone the extra mile by researching, studying, analyzing and investing considerable time and energy towards the common goal of deciphering the puzzle of the untimely death of Robert Wone, a fine young man and a promising attorney.
Their names are familiar to the regular readers and case insiders alike. Some of these sages have been here since the launch while others have joined more recently.
This is a large family that grows larger by the week and we’re grateful to all who follow the case and have enlisted in the mission.
We’re sad to report that we lost an important member of the family in the past several days. We bid a fond and tearful farewell to Chilaw79.
As a key member of the wmrw in-house counsel, Chilaw’s contributions here were voluminous. Always ready with smart insight on any new developments in the case, Chilaw made this site better in both the comments section and more often than not offline, schooling us on what it all means and what to expect.
In Chilaw’s final comment on these pages, from just a few days ago, we were offered wise words on how to stay positive and focused on the task ahead, the indefatigable and dogged pursuit of justice:
“Best wishes for the new year. I have not been at this for four years; I have no idea whether I could do this for four years, but I can understand a certain weariness, aggravated, in part, from the glacial pace at which justice moves.
As a lawyer, I believe that helping to determine who murdered Robert Wone and the role the defendants played (if any) is worthwhile. One very promising young lawyer is dead and another has seen his career fall apart.
This crime has caused ripples that reach whole families and institutions. Who knows what good Robert Wone would have done with his life? Always make time for your friends and family… When you feel weary, take a break. Others will carry on.”
Others will carry on.
Our deepest and most heartfelt condolences go out to Chilaw’s loved ones and we sincerely thank them for sharing their remarkably kind, patient and generous family member with ours.
