D.C. Mansion Murders: Victim's Blood Found on Suspect Daron Dylon Wint's Shoes, Cops Say
Police first identified Wint as a suspect in the gruesome murders after they found his DNA on a piece of pizza crust
Forensic analysts have matched blood found on Daron Dylon Wint’s shoes to at least one of the four people who were found dead after a suspicious house fire at a multimillion-dollar home in Washington, D.C.
Wint has been arrested in connection with the May 14 murders of businessman Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa.
Authorities initially identified Wint as a suspect in the gruesome murders after they found his DNA on a piece of pizza crust recovered from the scene of the crime.
Now, officials say that blood found on one of Wint’s shoes at the time of his arrest matches one of the four victims, according to CNN. They did not specify which victim.
On Tuesday, investigators examined a safe at the Savopoulos family home, Fox 5 reports.
Savvas, Amy and Philip were laid to rest on Monday following a service at Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, the same church where Savvas and Amy wed on June 4, 1994.
“The service was very moving, very beautiful,” a mourner who gave his name only as Nikos told PEOPLE. “All of us should be so loved.”
Figueroa’s friends have set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to send her body back to her native country of El Salvador.
Wint’s attorney has said he is innocent.
