The pizza murderer has been arrested. Lets hope he gets the full extent of punishment that the justice system can give him.
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, is 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 close to Route 1 in Northeast DC, police told Daily Mail Online.
When they moved in to arrest him they discovered he had just left in a white Chevrolet Cruze with two women, the Washington Post reported. One of the women was driving.
TIMELINE OF THE WASHINGTON D.C. MANSION MURDERS
3pm: Housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa is supposed to leave for the day, according to a second housekeeper, Nelitza Gutierrez.
5.30pm: Amy Savopoulos calls her husband, telling him to come home to watch their 10-year-old son because she has plans, Gutierrez says.
9pm: A Domino’s pizza deliveryman takes two pizzas to the home. Money has been left outside for him so he takes it and leaves the pizzas.
9.30pm: Savvas Savopoulos calls Gutierrez’ phone and leaves her a flustered-sounding voicemail. She doesn’t notice it until the next morning. Though Savopoulos had indicated earlier that his wife was going out, in the voicemail he said she is sick in bed and another housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, is staying overnight. He also says in the voicemail that Figueroa’s cellphone is dead and the family doesn’t have a charger for it, which Gutierrez says is odd.
Morning: At some point, Figueroa’s husband, Bernardo Alfaro, goes to the house and knocks on the door, but no one answers. While there, Alfaro told WJLA-TV that Savvas Savopoulos called his cellphone and told him that Amy had gone to the hospital and Figueroa had accompanied her.
‘My feeling was that somebody was inside,’ Alfaro said. He continued trying to call his wife and got no answer.
Also that morning, Savopoulos makes a flurry of phone calls, including to his bank. His assistant drops of $40,000 at the home.
9.30am: Gutierrez receives a text message from Amy Savopoulos’ cellphone saying ‘I am making sure you do not come today.’ Gutierrez says she calls Amy Savopoulos immediately, but the call goes to voicemail. She texts her and doesn’t get a response.
10.30am: The family’s 2008 blue Porsche 911 is last seen at the home, D.C. police Chief Cathy Lanier said. Later in the day, it is found torched in a parking lot in New Carrollton, Maryland, about 13 miles from the Savopoulos house.
1.30pm: D.C. Fire and EMS responds to a call for a fire on Woodland Drive and find the bodies inside the home. They immediately suspect someone may have intentionally set the house on fire.
Police announce a suspect in the slayings: Daron Dylon Wint. He is identified after his DNA was found on a pizza crust at the scene.
Police say Wint may be in Brooklyn, New York.
He and four others, including his brother, are found and stopped by police just before 11.30pm on Route 1 in Northeast DC.
