Court Documents Say that Daron Dylon Wint, the Man Charged in the Quadruple Murder of Washington, DC family, Did Not Act Alone
NBC News is reporting that Daron Dylon Wint, the individual charged with the quadruple murder of a DC family and their housekeeper, did not act alone. Detective Jeffrey Owens of the Metropolitan Police wrote in a statement, “The crimes described in this affidavit required the presence and assistance of more than one person,” in support of a first-degree murder charge while armed that were filed against Darron Wint. However, neither the court papers nor law enforcement officials would name one or more accomplices, or say if they were among the people arrested with Daron Dylon Wint. He was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC.
Police investigating the murder of a wealthy Washington, D.C., family and their housekeeper suspect that the alleged killer, Darron Wint, had help from accomplices, according to court documents released Friday.
In an affidavit seeking an arrest warrant for Wint, a city detective said he believed that others helped Wint hold the three adults and a child captive before killing them and torching the family’s home.
Wint, 34, was captured Thursday in Maryland, a week after Savvas Savopoulos, 46, his wife, Amy, 47, their 10-year-old son, Philip, and their housekeeper, Veralicia “Vera” Figueroa, 57, were found by firefighters in the mansion’s second floor. Wint was arraigned Friday on charges of first-degree murder.
Two other men and three women also were taken into custody at the time of Wint’s arrest. They were questioned and released; no one other than Wint has been charged.
