Murder Goes Uncharged 2 years Later

Robert Wone arrived at their house alive, and Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward were in the house, and he ends up dead with three stab wounds to his chest,” Wone's widow said. “My gut definitely tells me that they were in some way involved in killing Robert…. They’re hiding behind the Fifth Amendment, and that is, I guess, the way they want to live their lives.” The three men were charged in late 2008 and early 2009 with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct, and then acquitted in a bench trial. No one has been charged with murder in the case. Authorities say the criminal investigation is ongoing. In finding Joseph Price, Esq., Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward not guilty on all counts, Leibovitz said that, while prosecutors had provided “powerful” evidence suggesting that one of the three housemates/ domestic partners  either stabbed Washington attorney Robert Wone or knows who did, the government failed to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that they intended to disrupt the investigation into Wone’s death.

Note in Ward's room
A New Yorker magazine on the floor was opened to an article titled "Late Works, Writers Confronting the End." along with SM torture devices and a set of knoves missing the knife size of Wone's wounds.
