Daron Dylon Wint, Suspected in Quadruple Washington, D.C Murder Arrested and Charged with Murder (Update: Police Say Wint May Not Have Acted Alone)
Daron Dylon Wint was arrested by police Thursday night and charged with the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their house keeper.
34 year old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Wint is the prime suspect in the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Wint was charged with first degree felony murder while armed. According to accounts, Wint was tracked to New York City; however, was ultimately taken into custody at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington. Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, where Darron Dylon Wint was reported to have been a previous employee of the company.
Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned later today.
Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint’s arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.
“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.
“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”
From the NY Post domes the following, Robin Ficker, an attorney who represented Daron Dylon Wint years ago, said he did not believe Wint could “hurt a fly.” What do you say now counselor?
The massive manhunt for a suspect in the horrific murders of a Washington businessman’s family and their housekeeper ended late Thursday when police grabbed suspect Daron Dylon Wint and four associates in the nation’s capital.
“Just got him,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said shortly before 11:30 p.m.
The arrest capped a day that began with the revelation Wint had been identified in last week’s murders of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife Amy, 47; the couple’s 10-year-old son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, by DNA left on pizza crust during what may have been an extended home invasion. Police traced Wint, a 34-year-old ex-con from Maryland, to Brooklyn, N.Y., and then back to Washington in the afternoon.
UPDATE II: Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement:
“We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us.”
With a past record like this, it was only a matter of time before it escalated to murder.
Daron Dylon Wint, the man accused of slaying a wealthy family and a housekeeper inside their D.C. mansion, once bragged he was “good with a knife” and “not afraid of the police,” according to court records.
Wint, who was captured after a massive manhunt Thursday night, boasted about his ability to murder “easily” and has a pattern of alleged violence, records show.
He reportedly bragged while threatening to kill a woman and her infant daughter after he went to a nightclub with her in 2010, according to records.
“I’m going to come over there and kill you, your daughter and friends,” Wint told that woman, according to records. “The defendant advised he was good with a knife and could kill them easily and was not afraid of the police,” a detective said.
According to the Washington Post, Wint, who “became very violent,” threatened another woman and her family that “he will drop us one by one” over a parking dispute.
Again in 2010, Wint was arrested for carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the headquarters of American Iron Works, the company owned by Savvas Savopoulos.
- In 2005, Wint was ordered to stay away from his father, stepmother and younger sister after allegedly threatening to shoot them.
- His friends weren’t immune from his rages either; Wint punched and groped a former acquaintance and “drinking buddy” at the bar where she worked, alleged victim Jacinta Council told the Post. She eventually dropped the charged.
- In 2006, he punched a housemate during a fight over loud music.
- In 2006, he was arrested for stabbing a man.
- Wint was arrested for assault charges at least three times in the late 2000s.
D.C. Police believe more than one person may have been involved in the gruesome slayings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper, and said the victims were held captive beginning the evening before they were killed.
The four were slain the afternoon of May 14, according to new documents filed in D.C. Superior Court, soon after an employee of Savvas Savopoulos dropped off $40,000 in cash at the home.
Police ID Suspect Daron Dylon Wint in Quadruple DC Murder of Savvas Savopoulos, Amy Savopoulos, Philip Savopoulos & Veralicia Figueroa Through Pizza Crust DNA
HEINOUS CRIME SUSPECT ID’D …
The Washington, DC police have identified a suspect in the heinous quadruple murders of Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy Savopoulos, their son Philip Savopoulos and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa. According to DC police, the suspects name is 34 year old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed. As per reports, the police linked Wint to the murder scene by analyzing DNA from the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been ordered to the house on the night of May 13. The man hunt is on for this individual who has a long criminal rap sheet. This sick SOB tortured, beat, murdered and then set the home on fire. During all of this, he ordered a Dominoes pizza. Can you say sociopath?
Police in Washington, D.C., issued an arrest warrant late Wednesday for a suspect in the murder of a corporate executive, his wife, their 10-year-old son, and a family housekeeper in their home last week.
The suspect is named as 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed. Police told the Washington Post that they did not know his whereabouts.
WTTG reported late Wednesday that police were seen outside a home in Lanham, Md., where they believe Wint lives with his father. The station reported that Wint has an extensive criminal history that includes traffic violations and charges for domestic violence, burglary and assault.
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 Post reported, citing three law enforcement officials close to the investigation, that police linked Wint to the murder scene by analyzing DNA from the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been ordered to the house on the night of May 13. The delivery man told WTTG that he delivered two pizzas to the house and was paid with cash left in an envelope outside the front door.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS KILLER?
Police believe Wint and possibly other assailants held the family captive overnight last Wednesday in the home, eventually torturing them until their deaths. But while holding the family in terror, they took time late Wednesday night to order a Domino’s pizza online, with instructions that it be left outside. The pizza may have been their undoing. Police reportedly recovered Wint’s DNA on the leftover crusts from the pizza.
“What they’ll find in this person is that he’s very psychopathic,” former FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole said.
She said the ordering of pizza while holing captives in the state of terror fits the pattern of a diagnosable psychopath; someone without remorse.
“Their ability to do this, order a pizza, you have to imagine that the victims are crying, they’re scared, they may even be having a physical reaction, these offenders continue to do what they’re doing,” O’Toole said.
Hours before the Savopoulos family home went up in flames, an assistant to Washington businessman Savvas Savopoulos was instructed to drop off a package carrying $40,000 and to leave the money outside.
Peru Agrees to Extradite Joran van der Sloot to United States in 26 years in 2038 for Federal Extortion & Wire Fraud Charges in Connection with Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba
Joran Van der Sloot, you can run, but you can’t hide … Peru has agreed to extradite Joran van der Sloot to the United States.
Joran Van der Sloot will be contradicted to the United States in 2038. Peru confirmed Sunday it will extradite Dutch convicted killer Joran Van der Sloot, serving a 28-year sentence here for murdering a young Peruvian woman, Stephany Flores, to the United States in 2038. Joran Van der Sloot murdered Stephany Flores five years to the day that he was also accused of killing Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, will be extradited to the United States, but only after he serves his sentence in Peru first. A federal grand jury in the United States indicted Van der Sloot on charges of extortion and wire fraud.

That’s how much time will pass before the prime suspect in the disappearance of American Natalee Holloway faces the American justice system.
Peru has agreed to extradite Joran van der Sloot to the United States, but only after he finishes serving a 28-year murder sentence, the Peruvian news agency Andina reported. The Peruvian court system sentenced him in 2012.
In the United States he’s been indicted on federal charges of extortion and wire fraud. American authorities accuse him of extorting money from Holloway’s mother by offering bogus information about her daughter’s disappearance.

BYE, BYE WHITEY …
James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger, the former organized crime figure from South Boston, Massachusetts and head of the Winter Hill Gang was dressed in his orange prison jump suit as he was sentenced today to two life sentences in prison plus five years by a federal judge. Ha, because after 2 life sentences, those extra 5 years just put the cherry on the sundae. The 84 year old Bulger was convicted earlier this year of charges that he participated in 11 murders, drug trafficking, racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and pretty much every crime that took place in South Boston. Good riddance, this man will spend the rest of his life in a cage.
James “Whitey” Bulger … Then and Now
Notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger was sentenced today to two life sentences in prison plus five years by a federal judge who cited the lives that Bulger wrecked as he rampaged for decades through the city’s underworld under the protection of corrupt FBI agents.
The testimony of human suffering that you and your associates inflicted on others was at times agonizing to hear and painful to watch,” said US District Court Judge Denise J. Casper, who recited, one by one, the names of the people Bulger murdered.
“The scope, the callousness, the depravity of your crimes, are almost unfathomable,” she said in the stillness of a courtroom filled with teary-eyed relatives of the killer’s victims.
Bulger, 84, was convicted earlier this year of charges that he participated in 11 murders, drug trafficking, racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and other crimes. Bulger fled Boston shortly before his 1995 racketeering indictment. One of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted — along with Osama bin Laden — he eluded a worldwide manhunt until he was captured in June 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif.
