WASHINGTON (WRIC) – Police have identified a suspect in a mysterious quadruple murder in Washington, D.C.

The Metropolitan Police Department said officers were searching for Daron Wint, 34, after a court issued an arrest warrant charging him with “Murder One while Armed.”

The fire killed the homeowners — Savvas Savopoulos and his wife, Amy — along with their 10-year-old son Phillip and their longtime housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa.

DNA evidence left on the crust of a pizza led police to Wint, according to a report from The Washington Post.

The Metropolitan Police Department has offered a reward of $25,000 per victim to anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
