OCALA, Fla. — Authorities in Florida say a Minnesota man has died two days after killing his girlfriend and young child before shooting himself.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Monday morning that 27-year-old Kevin Benjamin Olesen Farias of Waconia, Minn., died. A motorist found the family in the middle of a clay road in the Ocala National Forest on Saturday morning.

Officials said 32-year-old Jessica L. Johnson and the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Gabriela Farias, died at the scene.

Authorities say the mother and daughter lived in western Wisconsin but had not determined Monday exactly where.

Farias was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Ocala is in north Florida.
