a mother a father their 10-year-old son and the family's housekeeper found dead in a burning upscale d.c. home. this afternoon, we are learning now details about how this case is moving forward. >> we're also seeing new video of the family's car torched in a church parking lot in maryland. >> pat collins is following new developments live back at the scene along woodland road in northwest. pat, where does this investigation stand at this point? there's so many unanswered questions. >> reporter: they're working on many fronts here. first of all, at the scene, atf and d.c. police continue to work this scene, gathering evidence and information. this is day five. they are still working. this is an active crime scene. then out in new carrollton where they found the porsche car that
4:15 pm
was stolen from the scene set on fire they were out there today with a bloodhound. they're trying to track down the movements of the man who set that car on fire. this is a last known sighting of a potential suspect in this case. as you will recall over the weekend d.c. police released security camera video of the guy walking behind a building. police are trying to figure out why did he ditch the car there? why did he set it on fire there? and where did he go after that? also sources are telling me they believe there's more than one suspect involved in this case and they believe the suspects had knowledge about this family. how they lived, their day-to-day lives. and they believe that the suspects went inside this house and they tied up the people in the house. and held them captive until they got what they want. i'll have more details about that coming up at 5:00.
4:16 pm
but now back to you. and pat, what do investigators still need to learn? my -- refresh our memory. there is no sign of forced entry in that house. right? >> reporter: not at all. not that we're aware. it's quite possible whoever did this was led into the house. again, it's likely that someone knew the comings and goings of this family. and it's also likely this began on wednesday, maybe wednesday afternoon. continued through the day on wednesday, through the night until thursday in the afternoon when the fire was set to cover up apparently the four murders. so there was a lot of time inside that house. perhaps where the captives were threatened until they got what they wanted. >> pat collins, we'll check back at 5:00 tonight. thanks so much. the national weather service confirmed today that an ef-1 tornado packing winds 110 miles per hour touched down near new orleans sunday morning. three homes were destroyed and

4:19 pm
air and even uncomfortable into the evening hours. let's watch this on future weather right now so that you can plan and see where these storms are going to start firing. fairly scattered at 6:00 and i think that for 6:30 7:00 we could see some line come right through areas of d.c. producing downpours and hang on until 9:00 potentially 10:00 as it moves east of i-95 and then lingering showers as we get closer to the midnight hour. 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, theirly overcast. could be pockets of fog around. there could be an isolated storm in the breaks but right now tuesday is looking like an even lower rain threat than we are having today. this as the weather front is forecast to come through the area between about 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. tomorrow and when it does it brings down the humidity. until then at least for today, again, scattered storms across the area. warm sticky humid. and for tomorrow, that temperature, we get up to around 80 degrees. we stop out in the upper 80s for
