Resigning the Case

Prosecutor quits gay-related homicide

Thomas ”Tad” DiBiase, the prosecutor leading the investigation into the unsolved murder of Washington attorney Robert Wone, who was murdered in a Swann Street townhouse last August, has resigned, according to the Legal Times.

DiBiase, who was working as the deputy chief of the homicide division at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, did not offer an explanation for his departure, Legal Times reported. DiBiase has not returned calls from Metro Weekly seeking comment.

Wone, 32, was stabbed to death with a kitchen knife in the townhouse of gay-rights attorney Joseph Price and his partner, Victor Zaborsky, which they shared with a roommate, Dylan Ward. According to the Washington Post, Wone lived with his wife in Oakton, Va., and had spent the night at Price’s townhouse after working late for Radio Free Asia in Northwest D.C.
