Family of Six Found Dead

Five young children and their mother were found dead in their apartment on Saturday, and authorities are hunting for the family's father, who left the country. Mesac Damas boarded a flight to Haiti, where he has family, from Miami on Friday. The five children ranged from 9 years old to 11 months old. A Florida sheriff called the homicides "the worst of the worst." Damas, who worked as a cook, had prior charges of domestic violence against his wife. The family lived in a gated community in Naples, Florida.
