WASHINGTON (AP) — Police have identified a suspect in the mysterious slayings of a wealthy Washington family and their housekeeper inside their multimillion-dollar home.

Washington, D.C., police issued a news release late Wednesday saying they are looking for a man identified as 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint in connection with last Thursday's quadruple homicide. Police have issued an arrest warrant charging Wint with "murder one while armed."

Authorities offered no further details, and have previously released very little information about who might have killed the family or why. When firefighters responded to the house for a fire May 14, they found the slain bodies still inside. Authorities believe the fire was intentionally set.

Slain were 46-year-old Savvas Savopoulos; his 47-year-old wife, Amy; their son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa.
