D.C. Mansion Murders: Who Is Suspect Daron Dylon Wint?
So who is the man accused of torturing and killing three family members and their housekeeper? Authorities say the slayings weren't random: Wint previously worked for Savopoulos' company, American Iron Works. "We do believe there is a connection between this suspect in this case through the business," Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said Thursday.
Police haven't revealed what the motive behind the murders might be, but it appears that the four were killed shortly after $40,000 in cash was delivered to the house in the upscale Woodley Park neighborhood. That money is now missing.
Born in Guyana, Wint immigrated to the U.S. in 2000 and enlisted in the Marines shortly afterward, attending boot camp on Parris Island, South Carolina, for two months from late July to late September in 2001.
"He never made it through boot camp," a spokeswoman for the Marine Corps tells PEOPLE. "He would not be considered a former Marine in the sense that he did not earn his globe and anchor."
