A pizza crust has led to the identification of a suspect in the Washington, D.C., murders.

Police have issued a warrant for Daron Dylon Wint after running a piece of pizza crust found at the burned mansion for DNA, The Washington Post reported. Officials now believe the 34-year-old Maryland man could be in Brooklyn, New York, according to New York magazine.

Wint is wanted in the quadruple murder of CEO Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, who were all found dead last week inside the Savopoulos home, which had been set on fire, The Post noted.

The pizza crust was from a Domino's pie that was reportedly delivered to the Savopoulos home May 13, the night police believe the family was being held captive.

Savvas Savopoulos' personal assistant reportedly dropped off $40,000 at the house the next morning, according to police documents.

On Monday, the family’s blue Porsche, which had been torched, was discovered in the parking lot of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Lanham, Maryland. A short distance away from the scene a camera caught footage of one person of interest, a hooded character carrying a bucket.

Information regarding the exchange of cash has only complicated matters in the case. Police documents show a rush of phone calls made between Savopoulos, his personal assistant, a bank, an accountant, a construction company executive, and Savopoulos’ American Iron Works company in the hours leading up to the fire, The Post noted.

Police said they are looking into whether any links can be made between Savopoulos’ personal and business affairs.
