On August 2, 2006, Robert Wone, a respected Washington D.C. attorney, was found murdered in the upscale townhome of his friends, Joe Price and Victor Zaborsky, and their roommate, Dylan Ward. The case quickly became a media sensation, with the public fascinated by the gruesome details surrounding Wone’s death.
Despite the extensive investigation that followed, the case remains unsolved, with no charges ever filed against Price, Zaborsky, or Ward. Now, a new documentary series set to air on Peacock promises to shed new light on the case and potentially uncover new evidence.
“Who Killed Robert Wone” features interviews with those closest to the case, including Blade reporter Lou Chibbaro Jr., who covered the murder for years. The series promises to explore the shocking details surrounding Wone’s death, including the syringe marks found on his neck, suggesting he may have been drugged or incapacitated before being stabbed, and the collection of S&M devices found in the home, leading to speculation that Wone may have been sexually assaulted.
While the three gay men who shared the townhome with Wone were eventually named as defendants in a $20 million wrongful death lawsuit, they were found not guilty of obstructing justice in the case. However, the new documentary suggests that there may be more to the story, and that the true killer may still be at large.
With the premiere of “Who Killed Robert Wone” just around the corner, true crime fans and armchair detectives alike are sure to be on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the answers to one of the most baffling murder cases in recent memory.
