Police detectives are trying to identify additional suspects involved in the cruel deaths of the Savopoulos family members by tracing cellphones stolen from the victim’s Northwest Washington home.
Detectives hope that they would be able to identify additional suspects from the stolen cellphones’ locations and the text messages and calls made before and after the crime that left four people, three family members and a housekeeper, dead.
An iPhone belonging to Savvas Savopoulos’ assistant is also a thing off interest for defectives in the ongoing investigation. According to police, 28-year-old assistant Jordan Wallace collected and dropped off a $40,000 ransom when the family was being held captive.
Initially, he told investigators that his boss contacted him the morning of May 14 and asked him to get the money. But later he told them that his boss called him on May 13, and told him to collect the money. Police doubt that he might be hiding something.
In the May 14 cruel deadly incident, suspects killed 46-year-old Savopoulos, his 47-year-old wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip, and their 57-year-old housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa.
Police investigators said the suspects killed the victims and burnt their home at the Woodland Drive after they received the ransom. The fire was discovered at around 1:15 p. m. on May 14, nearly 19 hours after the family was taken hostage on May 13 evening.
