NORTH NAPLES, Florida (BNO NEWS) Six people were found killed inside their Florida home on Saturday evening, local officials said on Sunday morning.
A suspect is being sought after detectives found Mesac Damas' wife and five young children dead inside their residence in the 800 block of Hampton Circle in North Naples around 6.30 p.m. local time.
The husband of the wife, and the father of the five murdered children, is being sought in connection with the crime. He was identified as Mesac Damas who is 33-years-old. Detectives described Damas as black, 6 feet 2 inches, 230 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes.
According to a Collier County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, Damas is possibly driving a black GMC Yukon Denali with Florida license plate M360PR.
Detectives did not immediately release the cause of death for the victims but called it a homicide investigation. One media report cited an official as saying the victims had not been shot but refused to release other information.
Earlier this week, Mesac Damas updated his Facebook status saying: "Good people do not go to heaven, only sinners do! Thank you God I am going to heaven."
Anyone with information on Damas' whereabouts is being asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at (239) 252-9300. If you want to remain anonymous and still be eligible for a reward call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-789-TIPS.
No further information was available on Sunday morning.
What? We live in North Naples, just moved here, and it always seems so quiet!
“Thou shalt not kill, Mesac...”
If he needs a hideout, ACORN can get him a house - and “info” on how to cheat on his taxes...
” Detectives described Damas as black “
How did that slip past the PC Censors????
It wouldn't have a lot of bling on it, would it?
Where is that name from?
and wth kind of name is “Mesac Damas”.....
I’m guessin Muslim.
Hopefully you’ll make that trip real soon, Dumas.
My guess is Haiti.
aka “Mesadsac Damass”
/3rd grade namecalling mentality
Haitian, which would make him (in order of probability): 1. Catholic, 2. Jehovah’s Witness, 3. Voudou, of 4, Heretic.
Racists all of them.
How dare they describe the perp as “black.”
He is even driving a “black” car. HOW DARE THEY!!!
RIP for the poor wife and children.
‘What? We live in North Naples, just moved here, and it always seems so quiet!’
Naples is wonderful. My folks have had a place there for about 17 years, and I visit there 3-4 times a year. It’s generally safe but, occasionally, things do happen. There were the execution deaths of some employees at The Cracker Barrel maybe 10 or so years ago. The perps were caught and are currently on death row. The Golden Gate area has a higher rate of crime than the rest of Naples, but overall it’s a fairly uneventful place. This sounds like a domestic dispute and not a random crime.
Just keepin’ it real.
It’s a variant of Meshach, as in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Which would make it Hebrew.
Lacking the “sh” sound marks it as Ephraimite...

Does the wife have a name?
He was such a nice guy. Never bothered anyone. Always waved when he drove by.
I think you’re right. I just looked him up on facebook, and although I couldn’t see his page, I could see the list of his friends, many with Haitian last names.
Does the wife have a name?
Comment self censored.
It is beautiful down here. We came down in April to check it out and hubby had already set up a meeting with a realtor. The realtor kept sending us listings for Golden Gate and saying, oh I live out there it’s nice...that’s when I know someone is usually full of it. We had taken a drive out there on our initial visit and I knew right away that I didn’t want to live there. We heard the scoop from locals and were told the best area to live was North Naples, so we found a house to rent in a nice neighborhood. In the local paper all the crime seems to be happening out there in Golden Gate. But, the realtor still sends us listings for Golden Gate after we told him we didn’t want to live out there period. lol.
This is the Google provided link to the Google maps view that I looked up. The street view is looking east at the entrance to the subdivision. Exiting street view shows the approximate location of the residence.
And prayers up for their loved ones. How sad and tragic.
My wife and I had a house built for $23,500.00 ( around 40 years ago) and several years ago when my daughter was down it was for sale for $700,000.00. Don't know what the outcome was with it. I'm sure if someone bought it they are sorry now.
I’m not sure how, but this story is racist.
CNN is reporting the SUV is at the airport and this guy is calling relatives in the US from Haiti.
Yes, there’s a lot of foreclosures here and the prices are bottoming out from what I’ve heard, leaving a lot of people underwater. That’s why we decided to rent for the time being. 3 stoplights? There’s stoplights everywhere now with cameras and of course, they change on a dime. Yeah my dad tells me how it used to be a really small town.
This is a terrible thing. ...What ever came of that ordeal in Pensacola, where the family with a lot of kids was murdered?
man...pretty bad freakout to kill your family...never understood that one
I’d guess Haiti too but he is a mite lite.
I lived there for a number of years..plenty happens there and on Marco Island. I will never forget the Cracker Barrell murders...right off 75 and collier blvd.
So very sad. 6 lives snuffed out. Little kids who probably died by the hand of their daddy.
They did not deserve this fate.
It just shocked me that something like this happened here. From my initial impression, and I’ve only lived here a couple of months, it seems like it’s pretty quiet. What is going on with all these murders of several family members at one time...mass murders? Our culture is definitely on the skids...no respect for life at all.
Meshach is “Misach” in the Septuagint since Greek doesn’t have a letter for the “sh” sound. I’m not sure how it is spelled in the Vulgate or French translations from the Vulgate, but probably with an “s” rather than “sh.”
Mother Teresa was correct in her assessment.
“If he needs a hideout, ACORN can get him a house - and info on how to cheat on his taxes...”
He is now qualified by the Democrat Party to hold elective office.
The five little ones are in Heaven; but as for ‘Dad’...I wouldn’t bank on him seeing them in the next world.
Beautiful family. Such a tragedy.
Bible name...Shadrach, Mesach, Abednago. Old Testament.
The ones the Lord delivered from the fiery furnace.
This one seems to have fallen back in!
Especially since he's in Florida.
