A Decade Later, Robert Wone Murder Remains a Mystery

Nice piece in The Washington Blade about the still-unsolved murder of Robert Wone, the married (to a woman) man who spent the night in the house of a college friend who was in a polyamorous relationship with two other men and wound up dead. 
On the evening of Aug. 2, 2006, Washington attorney Robert Wone arrived at the townhouse of his longtime college friend Joe Price after spending all day and part of the evening working late at his downtown office at Radio Free Asia. Price, a gay rights attorney associated with the LGBT group Equality Virginia, and his partner Victor Zaborsky and their roommate Dylan Ward – who were also friends of Wone — said later that they invited Wone to spend the night in their guest bedroom so he wouldn’t have to drive home to Oakton, Va., where he and his wife, Katherine Wone, lived. Wone, whose wife says he was straight, would have a chance to visit with his friends and avoid having to drive home late at night only to have to return to D.C. early in the morning for work, the gay men have said.

Until someone cracks, we may never know what happened that fateful night. That Joe Price was running an ad for someone to play with him and his dom (roommate Dylan Ward) always stood out to me. If people have a theory at all, it's usually that Dylan acted alone. But there's also the possibility that Wone was closeted and died during a sexual encounter that suddenly got more violent than he bargained for -- and that Joe wanted to protect his friend's secret so opted for this cockamamie intruder story to protect wife Kathy and the Wone family.

Returning to the scene of the crime in 2010.
