Guilt and Innocence

When “Not Guilty” Might Also Mean “Not Innocent” It’s strange how some criminal cases come to captivate the public mind while others fade quickly. This last weekend saw the conclusion, at least for the moment, of the Trayvon Martin murder case. As trials go, the evidence in this one seemed fairly straight forward. There were no...

Twenty (One) Questions

When Answers Answer Little Monday we took at look at the pile of Joe Price emails sent from his Arent Fox office that Plaintiffs have requested in their Motion to Compel Production.  As we only have logs at this point, we learned little concrete other than dates, times, recipients, and one unusual name. Also part of...

VZ VCB-2 of 3

The Late Show Continues Victor Zaborsky’s first interview with MPD detectives at Anacostia’s Violent Crimes Branch ended around 4:30am on the morning after Robert’s murder.  The night was still young and he would sit for two additional sessions, each growing slightly more contentious that the last. Again we hear of the flight back home from Denver, the...

Swann Streets’ Simmering Cauldron

Government’s Oppositional Motion to Acquit Highlights Defendants’ Relationship In AUSA Glenn Kirschner’s closing argument he started off very strong by saying the defendants story of how the events occurred on the night Robert was murdered was not consistent with”normal human action.”  He says that when Joe and Victor discovered Robert’s body “slaughtered in your guest...

What Did Victor Know…

…And When Did he Know it?   Parsing Zaborsky. Two minutes and forty-five seconds into Victor Zaborsky’s 911 call, the dispatcher asks him if Robert is still breathing, a question he repeats to the nearby Joe Price, who is providing the first-aid to their stricken friend.  No response from Price.  Fifteen seconds go by until the dispatcher repeats...

Family has defined this case from...

Day 7: Wrap

05/26/2010
By Craig

A Judge’s Lack of Patience and a Detective’s Hardball Tactics The after-lunch session started off fairly stormy.  Judge Lynn Leibovitz scolded the government attorneys for nearly a half hour on their failure to make clear how they intend to present and use the defendants’ statements - for truth or not. AUSA Rachel Carlson Lieber took the brunt of...

Beyond Marriage

Does Price’s Fair-Weather Activism Demonstrate Hypocrisy, More? In 2004, USA Today showered Joe Price and Victor Zaborsky and the lesbian couple to whom each of them donated sperm to conceive children with a splashy write-up about gay families during the run- up to the Bush Adminstration’s use of the gay marriage as a wedge issue during the Presidential election Joe Price’s...

Advice and Consent

Zaborsky Withdraws Motion to Suppress An interesting consent motion ran across the clerk’s desk late Friday afternoon, but because the District of Columbia was celebrating Emancipation Day the Courthouse was closed.  And perhaps ironically, this filing may be evidence of Victor Zaborsky trying to free himself. It appears that Zaborsky’s counsel Thomas Connolly, or a lower...

Big Love

Did the Third Degree Miss the Cracks on  Swann Lake? 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,...

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.
