Police believe that the suspect allegedly behind last week’s gruesome arson and quadruple homicide in Northwest is on the run in Brooklyn, NY.
Police suspect that Daron Dylon Wint, 34, killed Savvas Savopolos, wife Amy Savopoulos, son Philip Savopoulos, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa last Thursday, then burned down the Savopoulos’ house on the 3200 block of Woodlawn Drive. Wint once worked at American Iron Works, Savvas Savapolous’ construction company, according to Metropolitan Police Department chief Cathy Lanier.
“Right now, you have just about everything law enforcement officer in the country looking for him,” Lanier said at an afternoon press conference at MPD headquarters. Lanier said Wint’s family wants him to turn himself in.
Lanier wouldn’t comment on evidence in the case, but the Post reported yesterday that Wint’s DNA was found on the crust of a pizza delivered to the house the night before the fire. Savapolos’ assistant reportedly also delivered $40,000 to the house the day of the fire.
Lanier asked anyone who sees Wint to call 911.
“We have a person who’s wanted for horrible murders,” Lanier said. “I’m not going to say he’s not dangerous.”
