The Mansion Murders, a FOX 5 DC True Crime Podcast is the first of it's kind. Starting October 4, we will be launching a six-part series on the murders of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa-- a story that captivated the nation for three months in May 2015, and has left many with more questions than answers.
For 19 hours starting on May 13, 2015, wealthy businessman Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip and their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa were held hostage inside their stately Woodland Drive home in Washington, D.C. They were bound, suffocated, stabbed, and beaten. Then with gasoline doused on their bodies, they were set on fire.
The Greek word for family is oikogeneia. To the outside world, the Savopoulos family looked like they had it all: money, success, a beautiful family-- but what was underneath the facade?
Over the past couple of months, we have reached out to several members of Daron Wint's family, trying to find someone close to Daron who would share his story and tell us more about him. At first it seemed like we were out of luck, but that changed.
Didn't the Savopoulos family have a high-tech alarm system? What about their two dogs, and the pizza that was delivered to their home? There were so many moments of chance that family could have alerted someone to what was happening, and perhaps changed the course of events.
