Robert Wone Worked As A General Counsel
The two-part true crime docuseries focuses on a 32-year-old American lawyer Robert Eric Wone. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., in August 2006 in a college friend Joe Price’s home. Wone lived in Suburban Oakton, Virginia, and worked as general counsel at Radio Free Asia in downtown Washington. On the night of his murder, he stayed at his friend’s home which was about a mile from his office.
As per police affidavits, Wone was “restrained, incapacitated, and sexually assaulted,” before his death.
Robert Wone’s Rape Test Came Back Positive
However, after the cops investigated, the residents of the home (Price, Dylan Ward, and Victor Zaborsky) contended that the murder was committed by an unknown intruder. However, the trial judge found this unbelievable. The house was shared by Zaborsky, Dylan, and Price who were in a polyamorous relationship. Although they claimed the murder was committed by an intruder, there were no signs of forced entry.
Moreover, BDSM items were found in Dylan’s room and an autopsy showed needle marks made to Wone’s body. Also, a rape test came back positive.
Days after the murder happened, the Metropolitan Police Department alleged that the crime scene was tampered with. However, no charges were filed for more than two years. Later in 2008, police charged Zaborsky, Ward, and Price with obstruction of justice and conspiracy due to alleged crime scene tampering. Yet, the three men were acquitted of the charges in June 2010 and to this day, no one has been charged with Wone’s murder.
Katherine Wone Filed A Lawsuit In November 2008
In November 2008, Wone’s widow, Katherine filed a lawsuit against the three men for wrongful death. The lawsuit was settled on August 3, 2011, for an undisclosed sum and agreement.
Robert Wone’s death has been dubbed one of the most mysterious homicide cases in the history of the city. The upcoming documentary series will include legal commentator Bernie Grimm and former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner. It will also include actors Matt Webb, Vircell Dayap, Lucas hyde, and Mike Corcoran.
The docuseries will be available exclusively to watch on Peacock on March 7.
