Authorities have found Mesac Damas, a 33-year old Florida man who is wanted in connection with the death of his wife and five children, who were found slain in their home Saturday evening. From CNN:

The bodies of Guerline Damas, 32; Michzach, 9; Marven, 6; Maven, 5; Megan, 3; and Morgan, 11 months, were discovered Saturday, Rambosk said.

When a family member had not heard from a resident at the home, the family member asked authorities on Friday to do a welfare check on the house, Roberts said. Responding police knocked on the door but got no answer, he said, but officers saw no indications to arouse their suspicions.

The following morning, the family member became more concerned and filed a missing persons report, which authorities took, Rambosk said.

Later, authorities requested from property management a key to the house and an authorization to enter.

"When we did, we found the bodies of the individuals," he said.

"I can tell you that in no uncertain terms this is the most horrific and violent event this community has ever experienced. This is the worst of the worst."

He would not release the manner of death.

Rambosk said authorities had recovered Mesac Damas' vehicle at Miami International Airport, and they believe that he left on a flight to Haiti on Friday.
