Police Believe D.C. Quadruple Murder Suspect Did Not Act Alone
A man accused of burning down a Washington D.C. mansion after killing four people inside was arrested late last night.
But investigators don’t think he acted alone.
Authorities in D.C. say they believe more than one person was involved when four people were held hostage in the mansion until $40,000 was delivered last week.
The victims were CEO Savaas Savopoulous, his wife, their ten year old son and a housekeeper.
Daron Wint has been charged for the murders.
Police are looking into the possibility of more suspects.
The hunt for the man suspected of torturing and killing a Washington D.C. family and their housekeeper is over.
U.S. Marshals tracked down suspect Daron Wint and took him into custody late Thursday night.
He is charged with first-degree murder while armed.
His arrest comes about a week after the bodies of Savaas Savopoulous, his wife, their 10-year-old son and their housekeeper were found murdered.
Investigators matched Wint’s DNA to a pizza crust left at the crime scene.
He used to work for American Iron Works, where Savapolous was the CEO.
“This does not appear to be a random crime. There is a connection through the business of the suspect and the Savopoulos family business,” said Chief Cathy Lanier.
So far, police have not discussed a possible motive.
