A Washington, D.C. judge found three men not guilty in the murder of Robert Wone ’96.
Judge Lynn Leibovitz ruled that prosecutors in the case had failed to prove that Joseph Price ’93, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward tampered with evidence or conspired to cover up Wone’s death.
Defense attorneys argued that District police targeted the three men, who are housemates, in their investigation because they are gay.
Despite the verdict, Wone’s family has filed a $20 million wrongful death lawsuit against Price, Zaborsky and Ward.
