Main Suspect behind Savopoulos Family’s Killing Taken into Custody along with Associates

Federal agents were successful in arresting the suspect behind the killings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Daron Dylon Wint, 34, and four others, were taken into custody in Northeast Washington.

Cmdr. Robert Fernandez, head of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, said that they were able to arrest Wint and his group without any struggle. He explained how a number of police and federal investigators were successful in tracking Wint from Maryland to an apartment in Brooklyn.

Wint went underground since Sunday. He along with his group was arrested at around 11pm on Thursday at Rhode Island Avenue and 10th Street NE. Wint is facing charges of murder for the killings of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife, Amy, 47; their 10-year-old son Philip; and their housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, 57.

On May 14, police found their dead bodies. As per the police, all of them were kept captive overnight in their house in Woodland Drive in Northwest Washington. The house was burnt and the family’s car was stolen, which was later in a church parking lot in Prince George’s County.

Police detectives pinned down Wint through DNA analysis. They tested discarded crust of Dominos pizza ordered on May 13, the day when the family was kept captive.

Police officials said that before the house was set on fire, Savvas Savopoulos’s assistant even dropped a packet of $40,000 at the house. The police have found $10,000 in cash at the arrest spot.

Wint will make his first appearance in DC Superior Court on Friday. Police has not unveiled any information on the other four people who have been detained. The Savopoulos family thanked the police officials and others involved in the case.
