A 35-year-old mystery that split two sides of a family and left suspicion lingering in a small Texas community may have been solved last year.
In May 1968, a well digger named Wilbur Riddle traveled along U.S. Route 25 in the Kentucky backwoods, collecting glass telephone pole insulators. In the midst of his search, he came upon a bundled up green tarp. Riddle nudged the mass with his foot, sending it down an embankment. In the rapid movement, the tarp unraveled to reveal the bundle within.
The paramedics had seen a lot of corpses, but never one quite like this. Robert Wone’s chest was carved open by three deep stab wounds. A bloodied knife lay on a side table. But the high-powered Washington lawyer’s body was laid out neatly on a bed with his arms at his side. The bedding was unruffled and folded neatly at an angle.
There was no sign of a struggle, none of the defensive wounds that might be expected on a man fighting for his life. Strangest of all, there was almost no blood.
Later, the pathologist found something even more unusual: seven tiny needle pricks to Wone’s body that could not be explained by his wife or doctor.
