CNN reports that there’s more than pizza crust linking Darron Wint to a gruesome quadruple murder committed last month inside a Washington D.C. mansion. The blood from at least one victim was found on Wint’s shoes when he was arrested, according to law enforcement sources who spoke with the news station.
Forensic analysis matched traces of blood on Wint’s shoe to at least one of the murder victims, two law enforcement officials said. The officials would not specify which victim’s blood was allegedly found on Wint’s shoe.
It’s too soon to say what role the evidence could play in the case authorities are building against Wint, who has been charged with first-degree murder in the killings last month of Savvas, Amy and Philip Savopoulos and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa.
Wint was arrested and charged with first degree murder on May 22, eight days after the bodies of Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Phillip, and the family’s housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, were discovered inside their burning multimillion-dollar D.C home. The 34-year-old suspect, who at one time worked for Savopoulos, allegedly tortured the family in order to secure a $40,000 payment. Police first identified Wint as a suspect using DNA from the discarded crust of a Dominos pizza he allegedly ordered during the hostage situation.
