WASHINGTON – Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife, Amy Savopoulos, 47; 10-year-old son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, were found dead in their $4.5-million home near D.C.’s Embassy Row — where diplomats live, as well as the U.S. vice president — when it was set ablaze on May 14, officials said.
On Wednesday, a warrant was issued for the arrest of 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint of Maryland (pictured below), according to police. They do not know his location, and are asking the public for assistance in finding him.
The break in the mysterious case came after police said they discovered DNA on the crust of a Domino’s pizza that was delivered to the house late Wednesday as authorities say the family was being held hostage hours before they were killed and the house went up in flames. (link)

[…] Law enforcement officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said detectives think that the family and housekeeper had been held overnight in the home near the vice president’s mansion and that at one point they may have been bound. Authorities said they are investigating whether there are any links to Savvas Savopoulos’s business or personal life.
The man who dropped off the money worked as a personal assistant to Savvas Savopoulos, who owned or was involved in several businesses, according to the officials and police documents.
Those documents, obtained by The Washington Post, show that the assistant had been helping Savopoulos, who was rushing to complete a martial arts studio in Chantilly, Va. It was unclear whether the assistant made contact with anyone inside the house when he delivered the money. Police documents show that he was at a hardware store near the Chantilly studio in western Fairfax County from 11:30 a.m. to noon May 14 and was still in Virginia when 911 calls came later that afternoon about the fire 30 miles away in the District.
D.C. police have not disclosed whether they know of a motive for the killings. But a timeline of Savvas Savopoulos’s movements is beginning to emerge from the police documents.
The documents show a flurry of phone calls among Savvas Savopoulos, a bank, an accountant, the personal assistant, a construction company executive and Savopoulos’s American Iron Works company in the hours before the fire. The calls started shortly after 7 a.m. May 14 and ended just before noon. The fire was reported at 1:15 p.m. (read more)
