FOX News reported:
Police in Washington, D.C., issued an arrest warrant late Wednesday for a suspect in the murder of a corporate executive, his wife, their 10-year-old son, and a family housekeeper in their home last week.
The suspect is named as 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed. Police told the Washington Post that they did not know his whereabouts.
WTTG reported late Wednesday that police were seen outside a home in Lanham, Md., where they believe Wint lives with his father. The station reported that Wint has an extensive criminal history that includes traffic violations and charges for domestic violence, burglary and assault.
Savvas Savopoulos, 46; Amy Savopoulos, 47; their son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, were found dead on the second floor of their burning home in northwest Washington May 14. The home is located in an upscale area just north of Vice President Joe Biden’s official residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory.
The Post reported, citing three law enforcement officials close to the investigation, that police linked Wint to the murder scene by analyzing DNA from the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been ordered to the house on the night of May 13. The delivery man told WTTG that he delivered two pizzas to the house and was paid with cash left in an envelope outside the front door.
Authorities believe that the four victims were held at the home against their will overnight before they were killed sometime on May 14.
