 Florida authorities say a Wisconsin woman and her daughter were killed in the Ocala National Forest last weekend. 

A passerby found the bodies of Jessica Johnson of Holmen and her one-year-old daughter, Gabriela Farias Saturday morning.  Nearby was Johnson's boyfriend and the baby's father, Kevin Farias.  Investigators with the Marion County Sheriff's Office believe Farias killed the two, then turned the gun on himself -- but he survived.  Farias is from Waconia, Minnesota, and he’s reported to be in critical condition.
