The editors over at Who Murdered Robert Wone? offer new information on the autopsy report of Wone: “Lingering questions about what drugs were and were not tested for in the autopsy are now revealed.” More specifically, what paralytic drugs might have been used on Wone prior to his murder? The big question was whether Wone’s blood was tested for ketamine, commonly known as “K” or “Special K.”
From “The Toxicology Report” at WMRW?:
Tests were performed to determine the presence of:
“…ethanol, acetone, methanol, isopropanol…amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine metabolites, methadone, methamphetamines, opiates, phencyclidine (PCP), propoxyphene…gamma-hydroxybutyrate…(and) carbon monoxide…”
All tests were negative – or in the normal range. It is now certain that NO testing was done for ketamine.
And since ketamine has a short half-life, with residue testing at its limits at 2-4 days, not 2-4 years, all parties can safely assume any further testing on the remaining blood samples will never show positive for ketamine.
Now we fully understand why, at an earlier status hearing, Zaborsky counsel Tom Connolly was more than happy to let the government exhaust any remaining amounts of Robert Wone’s blood.
When it comes to ketamine in this case, there’s just no there there.
Robert Wone was found stabbed to death on August 2, 2006, in a row house at 1509 Swann Street NW. The case remains unsolved with no one charged for the murder, although there have been charges filed for obstruction of justice. The editors at WMRW? recommend the Wikipedia entry on Wone for a quick read on the case–although you can certainly find everything on their Web site.
