Six small children, a mom, and a grandfather are all dead tonight after a horrific suspected murder-suicide in North Florida. Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz held a news conference on Thursday, and said that 51-year-old alleged suicide victim Don Spirit was the only suspect in the deaths of his daughter and her six children.
The kids ranged in age from newborn to 11 years, making the crime all the more abominable. Their mom, Sarah Lorraine Spirit was just 28. The elder Spirit's grandchildren were identified as Alanna Stewart, 2½ months, Brandon Stewart, 4, Destiny Stewart, 5, Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8, Kylie Kuhlmann, 9, and Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11. They lived in the small town of Bell, Florida.
