The violent criminal who tortured and then killed the family of three and a housekeeper is identified. His name is 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed.
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 family’s two older daughters were not at home at the time of the fire, as they both attend elite boarding schools. Abigail, 19, is a senior at the elite Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania. Katerina, 16, is a junior at Peddie School in Highstown, New Jersey.
The gang member ordered or had someone order Dominoes Pizza while he was holding the family and housekeeper captive. He left a crust behind and took off with the family Porsche.
He tortured the four innocent people before bludgeoning them and knifing them to death.
A $40,000 cash package had been delivered previous to the crime.
He has an extensive record according to Heavy.com and he is one of those criminals that has never been held accountable.
The Associated Press reports that Wint was convicted in 2009 of second-degree assault and served 30 days in jail. He was charged with burglary in 2010, but pleaded guilty to malicious destruction of property. A protective order was also issued against him that year, the AP reports.
According to Maryland court records, Wint was charged in August 2009 with second-degree assault and fourth-degree sex offense in Prince George’s County. The prosecutor declined to prosecute the case. Details of that case weren’t immediately available.
He was also charged with second-degree assault in 2006 and that case was also dropped.
UPDATES: 05/22/15: Wint has been captured and has been charged.
Investigators tracked him to New York City but missed him. They caught up with him at a Howard Johnson Express in College Park, Maryland Thursday and tailed him while he followed a box truck to northeast Washington.
He and several others were taken into custody at a traffic stop.
Investigators tracked Wint to New York City, where they barely missed him Wednesday night, Robert Fernandez, commander of the U.S. Marshal Service’s Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, told multiple news outlets.
Three of the four victims were stabbed or bludgeoned before the fire.
Wint has been charged with first-degree murder while armed, D.C. police and the U.S. Marshals Service said. No one else has been charged at this time.
