DC Mansion Murders: More Than One Person 'Required' to Commit Crime, Affidavit Says

Metropolitan Police Department(WASHINGTON) -- A newly unsealed arrest affidavit concludes that the quadruple murder inside a DC mansion "required the presence and assistance of more than one person," authorities said.

Only one suspect in the murder and ensuing fire has been named publicly.

Daron Wint, 34, was arrested Thursday at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, DC Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He was arraigned Friday afternoon.

Wint was named by Metropolitan Police as the suspect in the murders after his DNA was found on the crust of a Domino's pizza that had been delivered to the house, authorities said.

The court documents, meanwhile, describe the charred scene that firefighters responded to on the afternoon of May 14. Firefighters found three unconscious adults in one of the second floor bedrooms, but they found a fourth victim in an adjacent bedroom where the blaze was largely contained, according to the affidavit.

That fourth body was that of 10-year-old Phillip Savopoulos. The medical examiner later determined that the child's cause of death was thermal and sharp force injuries.

The affidavit states that Phillip Savopoulos "was located on the charred remains/mattress spring of a queen sized bed."

There were signs at the scene that the fire was set purposefully and the suspects had planned for it to spread further than it had.

Firefighters found "the presence of an ignitable liquid on the stairs and in the room in which the three adults were located. Several matches and a matchbox were found at the top of the stairs," the affidavit states.

His parents Savvas and Amy Savopoulos were both pronounced dead on the scene. Their housekeeper Verlicia Figueroa, who was found in the same bedroom as the couple, was transported to Georgetown University Hospital though "lifesaving efforts failed and Mrs. Figueroa was pronounced dead," the report states.

Watch SpaceX Crew Dragon's First Flight From Point of View Video

SpaceX/YouTube(NEW YORK) -- SpaceX released new point of view video on Friday showing what it was like to be on board its Crew Dragon vessel, which took its first test flight earlier this month.

The test was conducted without any crew and was designed to help SpaceX engineers test the capsule's pad abort system, a vital emergency escape system that would allow astronauts to quickly get to safety if something goes wrong shortly after launch.

SpaceX said after the test that it was a success, and had humans been on board the Crew Dragon, they would have survived the pad abort test.

A dummy stood in for a human crew, allowing SpaceX to collect data on how the emergency abort procedure could potentially affect the human body.

The Crew Dragon lifted off with the power of SuperDraco engines as it moved 5,000 feet above the launch pad, accelerating from zero to 100 mph in 1.2 seconds.

Dragon detached from its rocket, deployed its parachutes and continued a controlled descent into the Atlantic Ocean, landing a mile from shore, where it bobbed in the water and waited for a recovery vessel.

NASA last year awarded multi-billion dollar deals to Boeing and SpaceX for development of spacecraft to shuttle astronauts to and from space.

Senate Votes to Pass Obama Fast-Track Trade Bill, Goes to House

Image Source Pink/Image Source/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The Senate voted 62-37 to pass the so-called "fast track" Trade Promotion Authority.

Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wis., was in the chair when the vote was called at 9:21 p.m. on Friday.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., then informed the chamber that there is not a time agreement to speed up the timing of votes related to FISA reform.

Therefore, the earliest the Senate can move onto those measures is 1 a.m. Saturday, when McConnell has said the chamber will hold its next vote series – absent any intervening time agreement.

“If that changes, I’ll be the first to let everyone know,” McConnell promised. “If it does, obviously we’ll try to expedite the process but as of this moment, we’ll be voting at 1:00 a.m.”

The FISA votes are only procedural to get onto the bill – in the form of Motions to Proceed.

Both are expected to fail to reach 60 votes, but if either motion passes, senators fear their Memorial Day recess will go out the window – possibly drawing out the process until Wednesday.

If neither measure passes, the Senate is expected to advance a short-term measure to buy Congress a few more days to get a deal worked out once both chambers return in early June following the week-long recess.

Memorial Day and How to Avoid Holiday Dangers

stokkete/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- This weekend, millions of Americans will hit the road to spend time with family and friends during Memorial Day and celebrate the unofficial kick-off of the summer season.

Unfortunately, the season also means higher rates of injuries, according to experts.

To make sure you can enjoy your long weekend and stay safe, here are a few tips on how to stay safe and enjoy the summer season.

Grilling

Grilling and barbecues can be an important signal that summer has finally returned, but experts say you want to make sure you don’t kick off the season with food poisoning.

About 48 million Americans become sick with food poisoning every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Reactions to spoiled food can result in nausea, vomiting, fever or diarrhea.

Marianne Graveley, a specialist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s meat and poultry hotline, told ABC News that using a meat thermometer can be important to ensure your hamburger is not dangerously rare.

“With ground beef, color is not a reliable indicator of doneness,” said Graveley, a specialist at the USDA’s meat and poultry hotline.

Meat that’s still pink may be well-done, Graveley said, and meat that’s brown may need more heat.

The ideal temperature range for bacteria to grow is between 40 and 140 degrees, which is why the USDA calls it the "danger zone." To avoid it, keep hot foods hot, and cold foods cold, Graveley said.

Jennifer Walker, an injury prevention coordinator at the University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, said it’s also important that parents keep a child-free zone around the fiery grill.

“Have a 3-foot kid-free area,” said Walker, who added that cleaning the grill is essential.

“You want to make sure the grill is clean and not full of cobwebs and grease and fat,” which can ignite, said Walker.

Travel

This weekend, 33 million Americans are expected to hit the roads, according to AAA, but more traffic means more traffic accidents.

“We typically call summer ‘trauma season,’” Walker said. “Everything from sports to travel,” can lead to trauma cases.

The National Safety Council warns that, with more cars on the road, Memorial Day weekend can be deadly for travelers. The council estimates that 382 fatalities and 40,900 injuries might occur as a result of traffic accidents this weekend.

“Sadly, we know this long holiday weekend will end with too many preventable deaths and injuries," said Deborah Hersman, NSC president and CEO. "We issue these estimates to draw attention to risks on the roadways and encourage drivers to take extra precautions so needless tragedies can be prevented."

Insects


For most Americans, the average flying or crawling pests are not much more than an annoyance. But for some Americans, an insect sting can be dangerous.

The American College of Allergies, Asthma and Immunology estimates that 2 million Americans are allergic to insect stings. That includes people who are at risk of having a potentially fatal reaction to the venom of certain insects.

More than 500,000 Americans end up in the hospital every year because of insect stings and bites, and they cause at least 50 known deaths a year.

Richard Pollack, a public health entomologist and instructor at the Harvard School of Public Health, said it's imperative for those who are allergic to insect stings to carry around an EpiPen, which can be used to easily inject epinephrine to help ease a severe allergic reaction.

"It does you no good to have it in your medicine cabinet if you're out and about [and get stung]," said Pollack.

He added that those enjoying the outdoors should also be aware of insects that are more difficult to spot, such as ticks, which can carry Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

"If you're going to enjoy the outdoors, even just a backyard barbecue, you run some risk of acquiring a tick," said Pollack. "At the end of the day, do a tick check on yourself, children and even your pets."

Pools

The beginning of summer also means the start of pool or beach season for many in the U.S.

Jennifer Walker recommends parents keep an eye on children at all times and have a designated “water watcher” at a pool party.

“There have been incidences that everyone assumed that someone was watching the kids,” said Walker.

She added that it’s important to empty kiddie pools or buckets after a party because even a few inches of water can be dangerous for an infant.

AAA: Nearly 37 Million Americans Traveling Memorial Day Weekend

Fuse/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Close to 37 million Americans will mark the unofficial start of summer this Memorial Day weekend by hitting the road, a new forecast from AAA shows.

The automobile group projects 33 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home between Thursday and Monday by car-- a 5.3 percent increase over last year.

AAA also expects that 2.6 million Americans will fly to a destination during the holiday weekend, while 1.6 million will be opting to travel by cruises, trains or busses.

Trak Lord, a data analyst for the traffic app Waze told ABC News that drivers should leave early Friday, travel during off-peak on Monday.

“So if you really want to get ahead of that, leave for work about 1-2 hours early. Unless of course you've got an audio book that you really want to finish, in which case, you're golden,” Lord said.

He adds that drivers should plan extra time for the Tuesday post-holiday commute.

“On Tuesday, traffic is actually worse than you'd expect. We generally see a 5 to 6 percent increase in the amount of cars on the road that Tuesday morning,” he said.

Women of the Indy 500 Talk About Going Over the Wall and Breaking Barriers

ABC News(INDIANAPOLIS) -- The Indianapolis 500, one of the most watched races in the world, has long been a male-dominated competition with cars flying around the track at breakneck speeds and pit crews taking mere seconds to change tires.

But women are now blazing trails in this world of high-testosterone racing, from the driver’s seat to pit crew.

Just last week, driver Katherine Legge announced she was teaming up with motorsports executive Beth Paretta to form Grace Autosport, the first all-female IndyCar Series racing team, with the goal to compete in the 2016 Indy 500.

This year, two women, out of 33 drivers, have qualified to race in 99th Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday: Switzerland’s Simona de Silvestro and England’s Pippa Mann.

Only nine woman have ever raced in the Indy 500, starting with Janet Guthrie, a driver in the late 1970s. Another was 34-year-old Sarah Fisher, who now owns an Indy team. She had the distinction of losing two cars in separate spectacular crashes during qualifying heats this week, both worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“That was maybe a $450,000 loss,” Fisher told ABC News after the first car hit the wall, spun and turned a looping backflip.

Whereas nine women have raced the track, only two have worked elbow deep in grease and car carcass in the pit crew. The adrenaline-pounding work of pit crew is arguably one of the more dangerous roles in sports. It’s a job, Fisher said, in which every millisecond matters.

“Those people over the wall train to be in that position,” she said. “Whether it’s a female or a male, as a race car driver you train to be in that position. When you’re over the wall, you sign off on that opportunity, and it’s the same regardless of who you are.”

Indy veteran Anna Chatten has been a mechanic for nearly 20 years and was the first woman ever go over the wall and work pit crew during an Indy 500 race.

When she first started, Chatten said guys would come up to her and ask her what she was doing on the track, but “now everyone knows me on pit lane,” she said. Chatten’s fellow mechanics have come to accept her as one of their own, she said, but spectators are still caught by surprise.

“Lots of people make the mistake that I might be PR [public relations] and not a mechanic,” she said. “This guy rolls up just as were about to roll the car out, so a bust time, not the best time to talk. But I’m accommodating. ... So the guy asks me, ‘Who is that guy in the paisley hat?’ Now there’s 20 people wearing paisley hats this month, so I say, 'Which guy?' And he got very offended and said I am not a very good PR person. And I said, ‘Great, because I’m not the PR person.”

Chatten is responsible for setting up the gearbox, the souped-up manual transmission in race cars, every time a car runs. It’s a piece of machinery with more than 600 combinations.

“If you get one little piece not in the right spot, it's game over,” she said. “Because all of this stuff works together, one little piece in the wrong spot and it's game over.”

And although she is wearing the same safety gear that all pit crew members wear, the job can be extremely risky.

“I did get hurt once and busted my foot up,” Chatten said. “We had a driver that came in and wasn’t good at making his marks. You have half a second to decide if he was going to make his mark, and the pit wall was really high and I didn’t have enough time to get over the wall. So it hit my foot and broke my foot.”

The second woman ever to work pit crew during the Indy 500 is Jessica Mace, a 27-year-old mechanic from Bellville, Ohio. She’ll be changing tires for racer Conor Daly in the Indy 500. Mace and her team can change a tire on the track in about three seconds -- in a ritual so practiced it seems they are on fast forward.

“Changing tires is one of the most physical things you can do,” Mace said.

Although she wears a fire suit and a helmet like her fellow male pit crew members, Mace said she is still treated differently, sometimes, in the heat of the moment.

“[The drivers] will ask the guys to do something and I will just get left out and, if you want to do that, that’s fine with me, I will work harder,” Mace said. “You deal with it and keep moving forward because you are not going to change their minds. You just have to work through it.”

Mace said she grew up watching racing and that her grandfather raced cars for 40 years. She doesn’t see driving in her future, but said men are starting to become more accepting of women on the track.

“We are here to work with you," she said. "So you can fight us and your car won’t perform well, or you can deal with us and we can work together."

Bill Murray Wants to Wish You "A Very Murray Christmas"

Dana Edelson/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Netflix has released a trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, its upcoming Christmas special starring Bill Murray set to debut in December.

The 24-second trailer, which is clearly a nod to his role in Lost in Translation, features a signature shrug from the actor while he dons a pair of headband antlers and gazes glumly out a Carlyle Hotel window at the New York City skyline -- all set to a score of jazz piano.

It's no coincidence that the trailer looks like the hit 2003 film. The special reunites the actor with Sofia Coppola, who last directed Murray in Lost in Translation, for which he earned his first Oscar nomination of his career.

A Very Murray Christmas pays tribute to the classic variety show and features Murray as the host, according to Netflix.

In the special, a snowstorm hits New York City and Murray worries that none of his guests will be able to make the trek, according to Netflix. But with a combination of divine luck and perseverance, he ends up partying the night away with countless A-list guests at The Carlyle Hotel.

The cast of partiers includes highly notable names, including George Clooney, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones and more.
