WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Days after police said four people were brutally murdered inside this multi-million dollar home, streets were still closed and detectives continued to take photos and gather potential evidence.


"It's concerning to me because I have a family that lives near here," said a neighbor, who lives up the road.

The neighbor said he drove by the home daily on Woodland Drive where Thursday May 14 Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy and two others, believed to be their son and housekeeper, were found dead inside.

Monday he stopped at the home to tell police what he saw outside the house the same day the deadly discovery was made.

The neighbor told ABC7 "I don't want to give any details because it might be useful information but I stopped to give a report because it was a little unusual and out of the ordinary."

Monday night we're also getting a first look at the family's 2008 Porsche after it was taken from the home.

The video showed the car with raging flames shooting high into the sky as West Lanham volunteer firefighters responded to the call.

Police believed the person seen in surveillance video they released over the weekend, may be the person who drove the Porsche from the upscale northwest neighborhood to a Prince George's County neighborhood.
