WASHINGTON (WRIC/ABC) – Police have identified a suspect in a mysterious quadruple murder in Washington, D.C.
The Metropolitan Police Department said officers were searching for Daron Wint, 34, after a court issued an arrest warrant charging him with “Murder One while Armed.”
Savvas Savopoulos and his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Phillip and longtime housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa were found dead May 14. According to a source familiar with the case, only the boy was burned to death — the other victims were doused with gasoline and stabbed.
Two sources familiar with the case told ABC News that DNA found on the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been delivered to the house led authorities to identify Wint as the suspect.
Police visited a home in Lanham, Maryland, and removed three bags of items in relation to the investigation.
Wint’s stepmother, speaking to ABC News, called Wint “hostile.”
“He doesn’t listen,” said the woman, who has not bee identified. “You try to tell him and guide him the right way, but he thinks he knows the law … more than anybody else. He was very argumentative. Everywhere he goes there’s an argument … very arrogant.”
The Metropolitan Police Department has offered a reward of $25,000 per victim to anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
