The police have named a suspect, Daron Dylon Wint, in a quadruple murder that happened last week in Northwest Washington, D.C., and believe he may be hiding out in Brooklyn. The manufacturing executive Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa were killed when their house, only a few blocks from Vice President Biden's residence, was set on fire.

Hours before the fire, Savopoulos instructed one of his employees to drop off $40,000 in cash, which has not been found. Philip, only 10 years old, reportedly showed signs of having been tortured. According to police, they named Wint — formerly one of Savopoulos' employees — as a suspect when his DNA was found on a Domino's pizza crust found at the scene.
