Police Search for Florida Man Suspected of Killing Family

North Naples, Florida detectives are currently searching for Mesac Damas, 33, who they suspect killed his wife and their five young children after the deceased were found in their home on Sunday, according to the NewYorkTimes.com. They believe that he has fled to his native Haiti.

The wife, identified as Guerline Damas, 32 was found with her five children ages nine years old to 11-months old. It is being characterized as one of the worst mass homicides in that area.

While Damas has not been charged with the deaths, he is considered a person of interest and has apparently fled to Haiti, where he has relatives. He was accused of domestic violence in June 2005, but the charges were dismissed. He filed domestic violence charges against his wife the following year.-WLW
