Police vehicles are seen outside a fire-damaged home where four people were killed last week in Washington, DC, May 21, 2015. Police were on the hunt Thursday for a suspect in the murder of a wealthy Washington family, after he was reportedly identified using DNA collected from the crust of a pizza delivered to victims' home. Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Daron Dylon Wint in connection with the four murders, one of the most notorious crimes in recent memory in the US capital city. The victims -- Savvas Savopoulos, president and CEO of American Iron Works, a building materials manufacturer in Maryland, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip and the family's housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa -- were found bound and bludgeoned May 14 after a fire gutted the millionaire's mansion in an exclusive section of Washington.
