New search warrant documents unsealed today in the case of the DC Mansion murders offer clues to what police are zeroing in on in the search for suspected killer Daron Wint’s alleged accomplices.
Police have said they believe Wint did not act alone in the murder of Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Phillip and their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa on May 14.
The four were held captive for hours before they were killed and their house set on fire last month.
Authorities are intensively focusing on finding evidence in the vehicles Wint and his associates were traveling in on the night of May 21.
The search warrant, already granted by the court, asks that police be allowed to search for:
- Money missing from the $40,000 delivered to the Savopoulos home on the day of the murders
- Red bag used to transport U.S. Currency
- Cellular telephones and the content of any cellular telephones
- Clothing for shoes containing blood
- Items, specifically clothing, that indicate the odor of gasoline
- Container that can be used to transport or store gasoline or other accelerant
- Paperwork, documents, credit cards of other items in the name of (the victims)
- Digital video recorder used to capture and store surveillance video and any items relating to the capture
- Paperwork/weapons/gloves/duct tape or binding material
- Photos of associates of Daron Wint
- Forensic materials – blood, hair and fibers
- Photographs of subjects yet unknown which could help identify witnesses and or other co-conspirators in case
- Digital cameras which may contain photos
- Money orders and paperwork relating to money orders
Police investigators were back at the DC Mansion where the murders occured again Friday morning, bagging and removing more evidence as the search for additional suspects continues. Arson investigators, homicide detectives and the prosecutor handling the case against suspected killer Daron Wint were all at the scene, spending about 20 minutes in the house and emerging with marked bags of evidence.
The house is being turned over to the surviving members of the Savopoulos family.
