Prosecutor: Wone Suspects ‘Did It For The Family’

The exact circumstances of attorney Robert Wone's 2006 murder may forever remain a mystery. But U.S. Attorney Glen Kirschner says the cover-up is plain as day: "They did it for the family."

Suspects Joe Price, Dylan Ward, and Victor Zaborsky, are charged with conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and tampering with evidence in connection to Wone's killing.

During opening arguments of the conspiracy trial on Monday, Kirschner described the three men as sharing a "powerful bond."  Price, who Kirschner identified as the leader of the trio, was engaged in a "committed relationship" with both Ward and Zaborksy, the prosecutor says.  They considered themselves a family, he says.

 When Wone was found dead inside the mens' Dupont Circle home, a choice had to be made, Kirschner says: Protect the family, or break up the family.

"The defendants really worked hard and fast to cover this up," Kirschner says.

Attorneys defending the three men will present their opening arguments later today.

"There is absolutely no credible evidence that this was a random intruder," says Kirschner, pointing out that a flatscreen TV, various cell phones, and the victim's wallet were all untouched, making burglary seem an unlikely motive in the murder.

Kirschner also produced a large white bath towel, which the suspects had claimed to be using to staunch Wone's bleeding wounds while paramedics arrived on the scene. The towel showed only a few specks of blood. "This was not a towel that was used to staunch three gaping torso wounds," Kirschner says.

    Why would a so called straight man spend the night with these freaks knowing they were homosexual freaks?

  • http://rickmangus@aol.com Rick Mangus

    In the gay community it was WELL known that there was drug activity at that house. Expecting the DC police to solve this case is like expecting a miracle, they already screw up key evidence in this case!

    MALE HOMOSEXUALITY IS DANGEROUS!

  • DrGeorge

    Noodlez is correct. And I for one am thankful that heterosexuals don't commit heinous murders, never engage in kinky sex, and don't use drugs.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. George Rekers

    PS Noodlez's comments are his own, and do not reflect upon his role as a longtime patient of mine.

    Almost as dangerous as the IGNORANCE about male homosexuality. Typically those so vehemently opposed to homosexuality are those attempting to hide their own latent homosexual tendencies.

    Noodlez,

    Meet one of those Petworth boys in your neighborhood and let them go to town on your ass. Once your fudge has been packed, I'm sure you'll be okay.

  • 4Sure

    No need to hide YOUR tendencies. Right Tasty? Make sure when you say IGNORANCE, you're looking in the mirror. You reek of it!!!!!

  • Tasty Snatch

    4Sure,

    Are you the obvious police or just fucking stupid? I'm gay and didn't deny that. Noodlez is too and the sooner he comes to grips with it, the better.

    Now go swallow some drain cleaner and go play on the street near the entrance to the 3rd Street Tunnel.
