On Wednesday, new evidence was found connected to the D.C. mansion murder case that resulted in the deaths of three adults and one child. The affidavit depicts the gruesome scene and the mortal wounds suffered by each of the victims.
Savvas Savopoulos, his family, and his housekeeper were murdered last month in what is now being called the D.C. mansion murder case. A prime suspect in the case has yet to be named.
According to the affidavit, Savopoulous was found in an upstairs bedroom with, “severe trauma to the rear of his head.” His wife, Amy, was found in the same room with deep, “lacerations to her throat and head.”
A third individual was found in the same room, Veralicia Figueroa, the housekeeper. Detectives stated she was found by first responders and given CPR on scene – she later died upon arrival at the hospital. A “blooded” baseball bat was found next to her, leading to more evidence for the case.
In an additional bedroom on the second floor, 10-year-old Philip Savopoulos’s body was found. Investigators stated his body was burned so badly that his age and gender was unidentifiable at the time.
According to the D.C. Superior Court document, investigators analyzed footage from a surveillance camera that was mounted on the outside of the mansion. Reports state that the recording system for the apparatus have since been removed from the premises.
