22 Hours: An American Nightmare – Episode 9: Brother vs. Brother

Daron Wint’s bizarre arrest one week after the murders on Woodland Drive only added to the mystery surrounding the case. When he was taken into custody, Daron was with five other people, including his brother, Darrell. The full story of Daron’s arrest wouldn’t be told until his murder trial — when prosecutors called brother to testify against brother.

This pile of burned debris was found less than 100 yards from where Daron Wint's blue minivan was found burned in the middle of the night of May 16. Prosecutors argued the metal grommets in the pile of ash -- the rusty-burnt looking circular objects -- were from a drawstring backpack Wint was known to wear.
