Mansion Murders: Site of Quadruple Killing Demolished

Three members of the Savopoulos family and another woman were killed in the house in May 2015

Nearly two years after four people where brutally killed inside a home in Northwest D.C., the house is being demolished.

Demolition began Friday on the Woodley Park manor home where Savvas and Amy Savopoulos; their 10-year-old son, Phillip, and their housekeeper, Vera Figueroa, were killed in May 2015.

The house on a corner lot of Woodland Drive was set to be completely demolished by midday Monday.

Police said Daron Wint, 34, held the four victims captive for roughly 18 hours on May 13 and 14 inside the Savopoulouses' multimillion-dollar mansion. Wint was allegedly paid a $40,000 ransom, then police say he killed the family and Figueroa and then set the house on fire.

Wint's attorney, who was later fired, said he believed his client had been set up.

Wint is set to go on trial in September.

The five-bedroom, six-bathroom house was once valued at $4.5 million, WTOP reported. It sold as-is for $3.25 million in November 2015.
