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.

Personal Data Usage

In question is nonpublic financial information of consumers and customers as such terms are defined in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999. According to the U.S. Code (USC), the term “nonpublic personal information” means personally identifiable financial information that is “provided by a consumer to a financial institution, resulting from any transaction with the consumer or any service performed for the consumer or otherwise obtained by the financial institution.”

The operative phrase is “financial” information. This, of course, would include account numbers, account balances and other nonpublic financial information regarding the consumer, including the fact that the consumer is in default. It does not, however, include property and other public records or information widely available through published telephone books, Internet social sites, etc. Nor does it apply to identifying information - such as a name, address or phone number - so long as the identifying information is not linked to the nonpublic information. the information can be shared with and by persons and entities seeking to assist in enforcing the transaction. Nothing in the codes calls for consent, written or otherwise, by the consumer. This is clearly not an oversight by Congress, as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) makes specific provisions for some requirements to be in writing, but not for others. The issue of financial institutions sharing consumer nonpublic information is generally covered under Section 313.1 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)

Fannie Short Sale Partner

Fannie Mae’s SSAD helps expedite the process by allowing real estate agents to reach out to Fannie Mae directly for short sale approval of first-lien, Fannie Mae-backed loans.
