RoadThree men charged with conspiracy in killing of Robert Wone found not guilty: "No one has yet been charged with the murder of Wone, the former general counsel of Radio Free Asia who was stabbed three times in the chest on the evening of Aug. 2, 2006 in a Dupont Circle townhouse. And on Tuesday, a Washington, D.C., judge found the three men charged with conspiracy not guilty on all counts. Click here for the WaPo article; here for coverage from the Who Murdered Robert Wone? blog; here for previous LB coverage of the Wone situation.

Prosecutors had accused Joseph R. Price, 39, Victor J. Zaborsky, 44, and Dylan M. Ward, 39, of covering up the slaying of Wone in the trio’s Dupont Circle home…Attorneys for Price, Ward and Zaborsky, who were arrested in 2008 and later released on their own recognizance, say they were unfairly targeted because they are gay."

Although the rally was not publicly announced, a small group of ultraright activists came to the square attempting to attack the protesters, local media reported, adding that four or five of them were detained."

    I cannot believe those psychotic fucks were found not guilty for killing Wone. I hope they rot in hell.

  2. TANK says

    but maybe they didn’t wone, shane. I mean, it’s at least plausible…this wone was not what he appeared to be.

    And rosie odonnell was on the seventh season of curb (funniest episode of the season)…the fight scenes were hilarious.

    Many important issues, but I still need to write it is so wonderful Cristiano Ronaldo has finally launhed website!
    Cristiano – official website and another pic where he is shirtless and the best yet, he is just playing on tv!
    This is almost too much for me, but I can handle it.

  4. Paul R says

    I’m surprised the Wone defendants got off on all counts, but I think for that we have to thank a completely inept investigation by the DC forensics unit into a case it clearly couldn’t wrap its head around. I was just thinking about this sad, bizarre case yesterday but had no idea it was at trial.

    The shootings in San Francisco are sickening. At a vigil for other shootings, no less.

  5. VInce in WeHo says

    It’s unfortunate that the Wone family will now have to endure a civil trial. Perhaps, some justice will be found there.

  6. Bob says

    Anyone who has lived in DC knows that their police department has suffered many setbacks over the years, I guess as most big city police depts. I am not surprised that the forensics unit may have boggled the Wone case.

    Rinaldo’s beautiful Portuguese skin against the contrast of the green grass and yellow and white uniform sure makes a startlingly beautiful composition.

    “Rinaldo’s beautiful Portuguese skin against the contrast of the green grass and yellow and white uniform sure makes a startlingly beautiful composition.”

    You know, I really wasn’t paying that much attention to the background. That’s a beautiful man!

  9. tsuyoikuma says

    Get it correct – the shootings did not occur at San Francisco Gay Pride, they occurred at the Pink Saturday festivities in the Castro the day before!

  10. Fahd says

    Slovenia is a country with a population of approximately 2 million people. The authorities should be able to investigate and apprehend these anti-gay terrorists without too much trouble.

    Europe truly remains a very diverse place, even with the whole European Union and Euro thing.

    If the leaders of those progressive countries in which gay people have been accepted as equal under the law stood up and put the proper encouragement in place, the Slovenians would act fast to ensure justice is done. If the Belgian authorities can raid the RC bishops’ office, the European Union can ensure that this Slovenian matter is quickly resolved.

    Unfortunately, sometimes when there’s no will there’s no way.

    to haley barbour the oil slick isn’t a major problem? you are an asshole of the first order. no wonder you were the chair of the repuks. wild life is dying, the envirnoment is in shambles , a gulf fisherman just killed himself, but the oil spill isn’t that bad. maybe he should go take a swim in gulf just show how not bad it is. god the repuks will say and do anything to keep their oil contributions upto and including lying.
