Cops ID Davon Wint As The Prime Suspect In Torture Slays Of The Savopoulos Family; Wint’s Father Told BOSSIP The Family Is Devastated
Police have widened their hunt for the prime suspect in the macabre torture murders of a millionaire family in Washington D.C.
Cops believe Daron Wint, 34, fled to Brooklyn after killing his former boss, Savvas Savopoulos, his wife, Amy, and son, Phillip and the family housekeeper. Police said family’s days long ordeal only ended when Wint set their $4.5 million mansion ablaze with them inside.
Wint was a one-time employee of Savopoulos’ iron works company, and is believed to now be on the run in New York City where his girlfriend lives. Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Wint was “armed and dangerous.”
The news comes as the failed Marine’s father told BOSSIP that he and his wife were destroyed by their son’s alleged crimes.
“It’s just a surprise to me as it is to anyone else,” Dennis Wint said. “I’m trying to console my wife about this right now.”
Washington D.C. Police said they identified Wint as the killer from DNA he left on pizza crusts left in the torched house.
Although Daron Wint has previous convictions for theft and sexual assault, the elder Wint told BOSSIP he did not raise his son to be a killer.
“My son is a grown man, he’s his own man,” Wint, 57, told BOSSIP from his home in the suburbs of D.C. “You make your kids, you don’t make their minds.”
Wint, Sr. said he and his wife were now trying to adjust to their new reality.
“Well, it’s nothing to think (about),” he said. “It is what it is.”
