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 first-degree murder.

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.
