The Third Degree: Price

Joe Price’s MPD Interview Transcript “It ain’t going to get fine.  It’s going to get ugly,” Price is told midway through his long night with good cop/bad cop at the Anacostia Violent Crimes Branch. There’s a lot in these 120 pages and still a lot we don’t know.  Were these transcripts from the videotaped part...

Leibovitz may rule...

Standing Room Only

Closing Night for Severance? Early into last Friday’s status hearing we learned of a letter that Joe Price counsel Bernie Grimm had sent (also on behalf of his three defense team colleagues) to Judge Lynn Leibovitz. Long described as one of the “great courtroom showmen,” DC’s very own George M. Cohan fired off this one-page letter on...

Past Is Prologue

What Sept. 11th’s Transcript Foretells of Nov. 6th’s Hearing At 54 pages, the transcript of September 11th’s status hearing may seem a dry read.   “53 pages too much of legal jaw-boning…” perhaps.  But text is important.  Text is memory made real.  And like a great dramatic work, while drained of its live human electricity, the...

Did Joe Price Change His Story Within Minutes? With all eyes focused on this Friday’s status hearing, it seems something else buried in this summer’s motions has gone overlooked. As the AUSA, FBI and defense teams wrestle it out over potential biologic evidence and high-tech testing, an old-school statement by the first responding MPD officer on...

Lawyering Up

Joe & Victor hire a friend; Dylan goes from zero to 60 in seconds For more than two years after the murder of Robert Wone, not a single charge was filed in the case.  Many believe one of the reasons was how quickly the three Swann Street housemates hired legal counsel. While the defendants have claimed they answered...

Bernie Grimm’s High Q Score Joe Price’s defense attorney Bernie Grimm is considered by colleagues as one of the “great courtroom showmen.”   But his performances extend well beyond the courthouse and into millions of homes.  As reported here, Bernie appeared off his game at the May 22 status hearing, less a showman and more a showstopper.  Confusion over discovery documents between he...

The Key Demo

On The Record With Greta Van Susteren… Much fuss, often too much, is always made about the annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner (“Nerd Prom”) and this year was no exception.   A cavalcade of celebrities came to town:  TomCat, Demi, Ashton, Tyra (fierce!), Val Kilmer, Matthew Modine, totally dreamy Chase Crawford; you get the idea. Much...

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.
