Who Murdered Robert Wone?

Indeed, who did murder Robert Wone? We don’t know and we may never know (although there are certainly deeply held suspicions, aren’t there?). The three defendants charged with obstruction of justice in the murder case — all were residents of the house where Wone was murdered — were cleared on June 29 by a judge in a bench trial.

Wone’s widow then filed a wrongful death suit against the three men. The editors at Who Murdered Robert Wone? have the details on latest developments in the civil suit. The case has not yet gone to trial.

Wone was murdered on the night of Aug. 6, 2009 at 1509 Swann St. NW. No one has ever been charged with his murder.

Got a Holiday Sweater Ugly Enough for TV?

Don’t know about you, but I have an aversion to sweaters with ducks, poinsettias, Christmas Trees and glitter. Any one of these is an automatic ugly sweater winner for me. TBD.com, in conjuction with News Channel 8/TBD is holding an ugly holiday sweater contest: “Enter by sending your photo to [email protected], by attaching it to our submission form, or by showing off your photo on Twitter (mention @TBD so we see it!) by noon on Dec. 17.”

The finalists will be subjected to an audience vote between Dec. 20 and Dec. 22. The winning sweater will be “worn by a TBD staffer in an on-air fashion show. It’s a whole bonus layer of embarrassment!” says TBD. In fact, the winning sweater will be worn on the air on Dec. 23 from 5 am to 9 am by TBD meteorologist Brian van de Graaff.
