Person Sought in Fatal Washington D.C. Fire

Police released surveillance video Saturday of a person of interest in connection with the suspicious fire in Northwest D.C. that killed four on Thursday, reports wusa9.com.

According to D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier, the fire was intentional.

Two of the victims have been identified as Savvas Savopoulos, 46, and his wife Amy Savopoulos, 47. Police believe the other two victims are 57-year-old Veralicia Figueroa, the family’s housekeeper, and the couple’s 10-year-old son Phillip, however their identities have not been confirmed.

Three of the four victims had blunt force or sharp object injuries, according to autopsy findings. The police incident report, released on Friday, said all of the victims were suffering from “various traumatic injuries.”

“We have nothing to suggest that there was a random or forced entry to this house, but we want to have a little more time to sort through the evidence,” Lanier said.

A housekeeper told WUSA9’s Ellison Barber that Figueroa was from El Salvador and had been working with the family for about four years. All of Figueroa’s children and family still live in El Salvador and according to the housekeeper, Figueroa told her recently she wanted to retire and go back to El Salvador to live near her children.
