DC police examine large safe in garage of Savopoulos' home

Police were back at the home where a wealthy D.C. family and their housekeeper were found murdered last month.

Savvas Savopoulos, his wife, Amy, their son, Philip, and their housekeeper, Vera Figueroa, were found dead on May 14 after firefighters discovered them while responding to a fire at their burning home.

One suspect, Daron Wint, 34, has been arrested for the murders in this case.

Investigators returned to Woodland Drive on Tuesday where they spent some time examining a large safe against a wall in the back of the garage at the home. FOX 5's Paul Wagner witnessed police twisting the dial of safe, taking pictures of the dial and working around the safe before closing the garage door.

FOX 5 also saw another investigator go through a number of documents and other items inside a room on the second floor on the 32nd Street side of the house.

A red Audi convertible, a tan Land Rover and a white Range Rover that were seen towed away from the Savopoulos' home last week were all seen parked back in the driveway of the home on Tuesday.

FOX 5 has also learned prosecutors are fighting Wint's attorneys over subpoenas filed seeking information about police radio channel traffic that was on their broadcast frequencies and 911 calls related to the incident at the Woodland Drive home on May 14.

Wint's attorneys are also looking for the names of people that were taken into custody with Wint on the night he was arrested on May 21.

The Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia is also speaking out about Robin Ficker, an attorney who once represented Daron Wint. Ficker has been publicly defended Wint since his arrest and has stated he believes Wint is innocent.

In a statement sent to FOX 5, Julia Leighton, general counsel for the Public Defender Service, said:

“The Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia (PDS) represents Daron Wint. Attorney Robin Ficker does not represent Mr. Wint and Mr. Wint has no intention of hiring Mr. Ficker. Mr. Ficker does not speak for Mr. Wint and he does not speak for Mr. Wint's PDS attorneys. PDS has no further comment for the press. PDS's efforts are focused solely on investigation, litigation, and securing a successful outcome for Mr. Wint.”
