A New Mexico man is accused of fatally shooting his wife and four daughters in their family home and then fleeing in his car, authorities said Sunday.
All five victims are dead. They are identified as his wife, 34, and their four daughters, ages 14, 11, 7 and 3. Their names have not yet been released.
Juan David Villegas-Hernandez remained at large but may have been apprehended in Mexico on Sunday, Roswell police said. However, they cautioned that they have been unable to confirm since dealing with two countries is difficult.
Police say they may not know if Mexico has the same man they are seeking until Monday. [. . .]
The family was found dead when relatives couldn't reach them on Saturday, one went to check on the house around 11:15pm and discovered the bodies, police spokesman Todd Wildermuth said. Officers responded and found all five had suffered gunshot wounds.
