Police have captured the man suspected of torturing and killing a wealthy family and their housekeeper before setting their mansion alight a week ago.
Daron Wint, 34, had been wanted in the murders of American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, 10-year-old son Philip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, who were all found murdered in their Washington D.C. home on May 14.
…As well as Wint, authorities arrested three other males – including his brother – and two females in the car and the truck, according to Robert Fernandez, commander of the U.S. Marshal Service’s Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force…
To summarize the crime briefly: Savvas Savopoulos, 46, his 47-year-old wife Amy, his son aged 10, and his housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57 were found dead in their house in Washington, DC, on Thursday, May 14, 2015.
The bodies showed signs of “blunt force trauma” and torture. The criminals gained entry to the house on Wednesday and forced them to have money delivered to the house. The house was then set on fire and the criminals left.
But during their time there they also requested a pizza delivery: from the crust, the police ID’ed Wint via DNA.
Wint, from Guyana, has a long and violent criminal record.
