It is surely the most famous modern-day D.C. murder that happened oh-so-close to Borderstan: the Aug. 3, 2006, murder of attorney Robert Wone. It happened on the 1500-block of Swann Street NW, just one street above Borderstan’s northern border of S Street.
The unsolved murder has garnered so much coverage—due to the strange circumstances of the crime—that there is a Web site devoted to the Wone’s murder: “Who Murdered Robert Wone?” If you are not familiar with Wone’s murder, go to “FAQ – Wone: 101.” (You can also search Borderstan.com for earlier postings.)
According to the editor’s the purpose of the Web site is:
On August 2nd, 2006, Washington attorney Robert E. Wone was murdered at 1509 Swann Street. Over two years passed, largely without much media notice, before any criminal charges were filed – and then only conspiracy to obstruct justice charges brought against Swann street housemates Joe Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward.
Two and a half years later, very little seems clear about what happened that night, and who murdered Robert Wone.
We are a group of individuals drawn together seeking answers to those questions. Help us find the answers, and find justice for the memory of Robert Wone.
