Police catch suspect Daron Wint in brutal DC family murder

Police have captured Daron Wint, the man suspected of torturing and killing a family and their housekeeper before setting the mansion alight.

Police have captured the man suspected of torturing and killing a wealthy family and their housekeeper before setting their mansion alight a week ago.

Daron Wint, 34, had been wanted in the murders of American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, 10-year-old son Philip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, who were all found murdered in their Washington D.C. home on May 14.

The dramatic arrest just before 11.30pm on Thursday came after US Marshals located Wint at a Howard Johnson Inn hotel in Maryland, authorities said.

When they moved in to arrest him they saw him leave the parking lot in a white Chevrolet Cruze with two women. It seemed to be traveling with a Ford box truck, authorities said.

After tailing the vehicles with the help of a helicopter, the officers cornered them and their occupants on Rhode Island Avenue near 12th Street in Washington, DC.

The truck was allegedly filled with $10,000 cash.

As well as Wint, authorities arrested three other males – including his brother – and two females in the car and the truck, according to Robert Fernandez, commander of the U.S. Marshal Service’s Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

They were taken into custody without incident.

‘We believe he saw himself on the news and just took off,’ Fernandez said.
