Unsolved murder of D.C. attorney Robert Won ‘stranger than fiction’, document reveals: ‘extremely disturbing’
It was in 2006 when a prominent Washington, D.C. attorney was found stabbed to death at a friend’s home – but there was hardly any blood.
Robert Won had three clean incisions on his chest, including that of his heart. According to a paramedic, the 32-year-old’s body appeared to have been washed and “repaired” before being placed in bed. To this day, authorities have not yet determined what happened the night of Won’s death.
Unsolved murder is a topic A new true crime documentary Currently available for streaming on Peacock’s “Who Killed Robert Wone?” It includes new interviews with investigators and others closely linked to the case. It also contains unseen footage of the interrogation of the three main characters who live in the three-story house where the murder took place.
Director Jared B. “It’s one of those stories that are stranger than fiction,” Scott told Fox News Digital. “It’s a murder mystery where there are all these people out there trying to uncover the truth… We’ve never seen anything like this before. This promising young man is spending the night with three friends. About 79 minutes after arriving at their home, one of those friends calls 911 saying, ‘Robert He was stabbed. “It was a very strange scene.”
It was a summer evening when Won, who had been working long hours in Washington, wasn’t sure of making the late-night drive home to His wife, Kathy Won, is in Virginia. Instead, he decided to spend the night with his college friend, fellow attorney Joseph Price, who offered him a guest room.
However, Wone did not arrive in the morning. That night, housemate Viktor Zaborsky called the police, requesting an ambulance. An EMS worker at the scene immediately sensed that things were “very wrong.” While Wone had a large hole in his chest big enough to “fit on your finger,” there was no blood on the victim or even on the floor. There was no blood coming from any of the three wounds. There were also no signs of disturbance in the house or the room. The property appears to be in order. Nothing of value was taken.

According to court documents, it looked as if Won, who was lying on his back on a fold-out sofa that was made up of a bed, had died some time ago. His head was on the pillow and his arms were at his sides. A light film of blood with tear marks indicates that someone may have taken a towel and wiped their chest.
While Won was wearing a T-shirt and sweatpants, his other clothes were tucked neatly nearby. Investigators were astounded that there was no violent struggle. While a knife was found, authorities later determined that the blade was too large to be used as a murder weapon.
“What struck me most as I explored this issue was the almost endless detail, which led to wild speculation,” Scott explained. “I was shocked at how many things you can guess in 79 minutes.”
“We unraveled a lot trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, trying to make sense of what happened,” Scott shared. “It’s a wild story, but you don’t want to lose sight of the victim, which is Robert. It was important to stand up for him.”
Zaborski, Price, and Dylan Ward, who appeared to have recently showered on her, told the authorities that it was an intruder who killed Won. They described hearing someone coming down the stairs of their home. When they went to investigate, they heard a series of grunts coming from the guest room.
According to the men, they must have entered the house through the back door. It is left open, and can be accessed if you jump over the garden fence. However, their claims were dismissed due to lack of evidence.

The trio were charged with obstruction of justice in 2008. Defense attorney Bernie Grimm, who also spoke in the documentary, said police did not thoroughly investigate the possible presence of the hacker. According to reports, Won’s widow Wrongful death lawsuit against them that year. They defended the Fifth Amendment.
According to reports, the three men were in a polyamorous relationship. The theories intensified when the police uncovered an assortment of sexual toys that, to them, looked like instruments of torture. Thus, they wondered if Wone had been sexually assaulted and tied up before he was killed.
Puncture marks on Won’s body also led investigators to believe he could have been injected with an anesthetic, which would have caused Won to become paralyzed before he was killed. However, the investigation concluded that none of the items involved were related to Won’s death. The autopsy report concluded that no drugs were found in Won’s system.
The trio adamantly denied any involvement in Won’s death. They confirm that their friend Killed by an intruder. In 2010, they were found not guilty of obstruction and tampering charges. In 2011, the trio and Won’s widow settled for an undisclosed amount.
Scott said he reached out to the men hoping they would talk on camera. He noted that although they never spoke to the media, the offer to share their accounts was always there. The attorney who represented the men during their trial did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
“The idea of speaking out now was never something we expected,” Scott admitted. “… [But] There’s no incentive for them to speak out either… We reached out to them, but in the end, we didn’t hear back. I can’t guess why. But we did our due diligence as storytellers. And this is no exception.

The issue is still unsolved. Scott hopes the movie will encourage anyone with information to come forward.
“I wish there were more shots of Robert,” said Scott. “You see him smiling in these pictures and by all accounts, he was a smart, warm, kind young man, too sweet a guy to be true. He just seemed like this perfect guy. He had a lot going for him. He was highly respected. He was destined to do Great things. It’s very disturbing and sad what happened to him.”
“You don’t want to get lost in the bizarre circumstances of his death — this strange, strange story of fiction,” he said. “But his life was taken at such a young age. I want people to remember who Robert was. I want people to know that justice hasn’t been done for Robert, for his family, for his friends. There’s still room for that to take place.”
