Kevin Farias identified as killer in murder suicide which left Jessica Johnson, 1-year-old Gabriela Farias dead

A baby girl and a woman were found dead in Ocala National Forest on Saturday morning and the shooter, the little girl’s father, later attempted to kill himself.

Identified as Kevin Farias, a Minnesota man, murdered his girlfriend, Jessica L. Johnson, 32, and their daughter, Gabriela Farias, who was only 1-year-old.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, the suspect’s full name is Kevin Benjamin Olesen Farias. Farias, 27, is in critical condition.

“If he does survive, he will be looking at at least a double homicide charge, and as the investigation develops, possibly more,” said Marion County Sheriff’s spokesman Paul Bloom.

A passerby discovered all three shot in the forest, near the area of Forest Road 88, approximately 2 miles north of East State Road 40.

“Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Major Crimes detectives are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide incident in the Ocala National Forest,” a press release from the Sheriff’s Department said.

Johnson is from Holmen, Wisconsin, according to MCSO. Online records show that Farias has lived in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. However,authorities say he was living in Waconia.
