What's This?

34-year-old Daron Dylan Wint has been identified as the prime suspect in a quadruple murder, and Washington D.C. police has issued an arrest warrant late Wednesday.


Wint, the Maryland native charged with first-degree murder with a weapon, is still missing.

On May 14, Savvas Savopoulos, 46, Amy Savopoulos, 47, their 10-year-old son Philip and 57-year-old housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, were found dead in the second floor of their burning home in Northwest Washington.

Police informed that the suspect was identified from DNA recovered from the crust of a Domino’s pizza ordered to the house the night before the murder. Authorities believed that the victims were kept under house arrest for a long time before they were murdered the next day.

Police are hopeful that the surveillance video taken by a camera located at La Fontaine Bleue will help solve the case. Police believe that the person walking along the street as shown in the video is the same person whose DNA was found on the pizza crust.

The surveillance video shows a person driving a blue 2008 Porsche 911 belonging to the Savopoulos family with license plate DK2418, seen at the home at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. Around 5 p.m., the car was set on fire.

Nelitza Gutierrez, a long-time housekeeper for the Savopoulos informed that $40,000 in cash was supposed to be delivered to the house last Thursday morning, and the delivery person confirmed to her that he had dropped it at the house Thursday morning.

Officials are looking for information if anybody has seen the car. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said that a reward of $25,000 is set for the person who could get Wint arrested and also asked to call police at 202-727-9099 if anybody finds information about the suspect’s location.
