Cue the Big Band music from HBO’s Big Love, but instead of Bill Paxton, out skates Arent Fox partner Joe Price onto Swann Lake.  Price offers his left hand and Victor Zaborsky joins him.  They skate together to the music, enjoying the attention of the other.   Before long,...

Opposition Friday

Government Quotes the Defendants’ Words Back At Them The Government responded earlier this week, not surprisingly, in opposition to the separate defense filings to suppress the defendants’ statements they gave the night of the murder from being entered at trial.  In doing so, AUSA Glenn Kirschner revealed new details about what Joe did immediately after finding Robert’s...

New Evidence of an Interest in Asian Men? Disclaimer: This post is MSFW – Mostly Safe For Work. When the prosecution admitted they were dropping much of the sexual assault evidence at trial their stated reason was an “evolving” opinion.  Just as the prosecution’s opinions are evolving, so too are our ideas about the Swann Street housemate’s sexual...

It Just So Happened…

Coincidences Or Puzzle Pieces?   Among the many puzzling aspects about the murder of Robert Wone is the surprisingly high number of coincidences that all managed to converge on the night of August 2, 2006.  Even with the government dropping much of their uncharged conduct allegations regarding sexual assault, paralytic drugs and torture, the case they will bring is still...

Winners and Losers

Govt’s Streamlined Case Up Ends the C.W.  Who Wins and Loses? Friday’s status hearing revealed that the government was “winnowing” their case as the May 10 trial date draws near. By dropping  many of the uncharged conducted aspects and focusing only on the charges against the defendants, the government dramatically changed the contours of the trial. With this...

Uncharged Conduct: Defense Response

03/03/2010
By David

Defense:  Semen Is From Postmortem Process, Not Sexual Assault A flurry of motions in the Robert Wone case hit the DC Superior Court with a ferocity to match last month’s Snowmaggeddon, as the defense sought to fortify their position that Robert Wone was not incapacitated or sexually assaulted on the night he was murdered. This came in their...

Tool Time

Government Turns Over Discovery Information Last week, the government laid out their blueprint for the prosecution of this case. Now, in the most recent filing, AUSA Glenn Kirschner opened up his toolbox to reveal just how he will accomplish his task. What is curious is this discovery summary isn’t part of the public record (yet) and only showed up...

Henry Lee Is Back In The Swann Street Saddle

Henry Lee wants to get his eyes on the white towel  When we last heard about Dr. Henry Lee, famed forensic expert for  notorious defendants, now convicts, such as Scott Peterson and Phil Specter, he would be unable to test physical evidence in the Robert Wone case because trial deadlines were interfering with his packed travel...

Double Edged Sword

The Missing Knife – that says it all, or does it? The knife used to murder Robert Wone is one of the most perplexing pieces of physical evidence in a most bewildering case. The prosecution claims the knife found on the night stand next to Robert’s body was not the weapon used to commit the murder. That knife,...

Purpose of this Site

On August 2nd, 2006, Washington attorney Robert E. Wone was murdered at 1509 Swann Street. Over two years passed before any criminal charges were filed - and then only conspiracy, obstruction of justice and crime scene tampering charges were brought against the Swann Street housemates, all present in the home on the night of the murder: Joe Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky.

On May 17, 2010, a DC Superior Court trial got underway and all three defendants were all acquitted in that bench trial on those pending charges.

Nearly four years later, very little seems clear about what happened that night and who murdered Robert Wone. A cloud of suspicion remains over the Swann Street defendants who have denied any involvement in the murder of their friend or in the alleged cover up.

Judge Lynn Leibovitz found a moral certainty in their collective guilt, but not evidentiary certainty. Civil proceedings in a wrongful death suit filed by Robert's family is the next chapter in this tragic story.

We continue to work together seeking answers to the mystery of Robert Wone's murder and in finding justice for his memory and legacy.
