WASHINGTON, DC –  Washington DC police now have a name and a face for the person they say killed four people last week: a ten-year-old boy, his parents, and the family’s housekeeper.

Police say 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint may be in the New York City area.

They also think at least one other person was involved in the crime that’s similar to the 1955 movie “The Desperate Hours” where two prison escapees terrorize a family.

The Washington Post reports police found Wint’s DNA on a crust of Domino’s Pizza delivered to the house the night of May 13.

Police say the victims died the next day after being held for about ten hours.

Police aren’t giving an official motive, but investigators think Wint tortured Phillip Savopoulos to get his father to come up with $40,000.

A business associate delivered the money in cash to the house.

Sources believe the boy died of stab wounds before his killer set his body on fire.

Police searched Wint’s Lanham, MD, home over night, but they’re not saying what they bagged up and took away.

Cops say his girlfriend told them she has talked with him and that he plans to surrender, but didn't say when or where.

Relatives describe Daron Dylon Wint as arrogant and hostile.

Cops say he’s been convicted for sexual assault and theft.

Now, they plan to add four counts of murder and hope to put him away for good.
