Wrongful Death Lawsuit All that's Left for Wone Case, at Present

The widow of Robert Wone will continue to pursue a $20 million wrongful death lawsuit against three housemates believed to have covered up facts surrounding her husband's murder in 2006. Last month, a D.C. Superior Court Judge found there was not enough evidence to convict them of covering up evidence in the murder of Wone. At this point, the wrongful death suit is all that is left.

A young lawyer, Wone had worked late on the night he asked to stay at the home Joe Price shared with Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward. Price and Wone went back several years, having met when the two were college undergraduates. Around midnight, Zaborsky phoned police to report that Wone had been attacked by an unknown intruder.

Wone was pronounced dead at George Washington University Hospital about 40 minutes later. When police first arrived at Price's house, it seemed clear that the crime scene had been tampered with and possibly even cleaned of blood and other evidence.

In addition, there were no signs of a break in and this cast doubt on the housemates' story that an intruder had broken in and killed Wone.

For nearly two years following the murder, no charges were brought in the case. Then, in 2008, prosecutors charged Price, Zaborsky and Ward with obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.

While the judge acknowledged that she believed the three defendants knew more than they had admitted to, she could not say that their guilt had been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
