FIRST ON FOX: Savopoulos assistant Jordan Wallace lied to police about details of $40,000 cash

The quadruple homicide of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper is still an open case almost two weeks after their bodies were found dead in their Woodland Drive home in Northwest D.C.

Savvas Savopoulos, his wife, Amy, the couple's 10-year-old son, Philip, and their housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, were killed and 34-year-old Daron Wint has been arrested and charged for their murders.

FOX 5 is now identifying the employee of Savvas Savopoulos who brought $40,000 in cash to the Savopoulos' home on the day of the murders.

Multiple sources have told me that Jordan Wallace is the so-called “W-1” -- otherwise known as Witness 1 -- in court documents regarding this case and he lied to police about the details of dropping off the money at the Savopoulos' house.

FOX 5 has been trying to find Wallace for a week, but he seems to be hiding from the media.

Wallace started working for Savvas Savopoulos a few months ago. He was a driver and ran errands for him. He is also an amateur race car driver.

Wallace posted a photo on Instagram of the interior of a Porsche. He captioned the photo, "Another day on the job, my office today is pretty nice!"

A friend of Amy Savopoulos identified the unique interior in the photo and it is the car that police say Daron Wint took from the Woodland Drive house and set on fire.

“That's Mr. Wallace's problem -- I mean, he clearly is connected and he's clearly connected in a hard-to-explain way and that's the problem he has,” said Roscoe Howard, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

Friends of the Savopoulos family said they are car collectors.

Wallace also posted the interior of their Bentley and Land Rover vehicles.

He wrote on one Instagram post, "My office has many leather bound seats and smells of rich mahogany!" He also commented on the same post saying, "I'm driving for a CEO in DC."

Ten-year-old Philip Savopoulos loved to race go-karts.

Wallace worked at a go-kart race track in Jessup, Maryland from 2013 until March of this year. An employee said that Wallace was fired from the job.

They said Savvas Savopoulos often brought Philip to this track and they believe that is how Wallace knows them and got his new job.

Prosecutors said that Wallace -- known only as Witness 1 -- lied about how Savvas Savopoulos told him to pick up the $40,000 in cash, how he picked up the package and where he left it.

“This witness is scared talking to the police,” said Howard. “He knows there have been multiple homicides. He's trying to distance himself from it. Certainly trying to make himself as innocent looking as possible.”

Wallace told police that he only knew that there was $40,000 in the package because another employee told him. But police found that Wallace texted photos of the bundles of cash -- apparently to his girlfriend.

Wallace also told police that when he dropped off the money in a red car in the Savopoulos' garage, the car was locked. He later admitted it was not.

“He may decide, well since it was locked, I couldn't have done it,” Howard said. “Or since it was locked, it couldn't have been me. Or since the car was locked, I couldn't have been involved. That may be his thought process. We won't really know until he finally settles down.”

Since all of these court documents came out when Daron Wint was arrested, all of Wallace's social media accounts have been taken down.

Before it went dark, his Facebook and Twitter accounts said he lived in Annapolis.

The home that belongs to his mother and where he supposedly lived is for sale and empty.

His mother works at a church, but staff said she has not been to work in over a week.

Howard told us the government will likely go back to him in this way:

“Mr. Wallace, this is what we have and this is what you said, they don't match,” said Howard. “Here are your options -- you can either work with us so we can present a case or you are against us and that will put you at the defense table where we are charging individuals with being part of killing four people.”

I have emailed, called and used social media to contact Wallace, but he has not responded.
