Sometime on the night of Aug. 2 last year, someone walked into the second-floor guest bedroom of 1509 Swann St. N.W. in Washington, D.C., and plunged a kitchen knife deep into the chest of 32-year-old Washington lawyer Robert Wone. That much police know. But a year after the murder, the case remains unsolved. Why? The answer involves bureaucratic delays, rotating prosecutors and a trio of potential suspects, who quickly lawyered up.

Police have made no arrests in the case — or even established any clear motives — and investigators are still waiting for the FBI to return portions of the evidence that was taken from the $1.2 million town house.
