KCSO has released the photo of the man accused of killing 5 people before killing himself. 

According to KCSO Sheriff Donny Youngblood, 54-year-old Javier Casarez killed 5 people, including his wife, before turning the gun on himself.

According to court documents obtained by 23ABC, Casarez filed for divorce from his wife after accusing her of cheating on him. The two were due back in court this October over changes to child support, spousal support, and property control.
