D.C. Police Seeking 'Person of Interest' in CEO's Fatal House Fire
Security camera footage appears to identify a hoodie-wearing individual fleeing
Washington, D.C., police are seeking a “person of interest” in the “very suspicious” house fire that claimed the lives of three adults and one child Thursday.
The DCPD’s Tweet and accompanying YouTube footage identifies a person wearing a hooded sweatshirt and carrying a large bucket. The individual’s face isn’t visible, and the relatively low quality of the security camera footage doesn’t reveal much else about their identity.
Police are also continuing their search for information on what may be the getaway car used in the crime: A blue Porsche 911 that was seen at the home earlier in the morning and was later found by itself in Maryland.
The house was owned by Savvas P. Savopoulos, a 46-year-old executive, and his wife Amy. Savopoulous, his wife and 10-year-old son, as well as one of their housekeepers, are believed to be the victims.
