"All agencies involved in this investigation are confident that this was a murder-suicide," Delavan Police Chief Tim O'Neill announced Wednesday.
Investigators also announced they believe the shooter was 23-year old Amborosio Analco, found among the dead, along with his infant twins, his on-again-off-again girlfriend and mother of the twins, Nicole McAffee, her sister Ashley Lynn Huerta, and a friend Vanessa Iverson. Analco and McAffee's toddler, Jasmine Analco, found shot in the chest in a minivan outside, is doing much better.
Neighbors Malerie Lenz and Travis Wilear witnessed the Walworth County SWAT team pour into the duplex across the street and watched the victims' bodies roll out. They say they're starting to relax now that police say there is no shooter on the loose.
"I actually feel like I can leave my girlfriend and daughter at home without worrying about anyone coming in to shoot them or anything," says Wilear.
But although the neighborhood is starting to get back to normal, those closest to the victims, like 19-year old Vanessa Iverson, say their lives will never be the same.
"It don't give us anything. My sister still was murdered," says Vanessa's brother Duane Iverson.
And Iverson has more than the loss of his sister weighing on his mind. He questions why Gaspar Huerta, the man who escaped the bloodbath in the house, did not try to stay and help his family and why Huerta now has not spoken to the Iversons.
"I'm not saying he did it, I'm not saying he didn't do it. I just want to know how come he's not coming out. He's seen it, come to us, let us know what happened," says Iverson.
Iverson is also frustrated with how little police are telling his family. Police say it will likely be months before anyone knows for sure what happened inside the house. They are still awaiting DNA, pathology and toxicology reports.
Gaspar Huerta's brother, Victor, says Huerta didn't even want to talk to him about what he saw and that he's staying out of the public eye as he tries to recover. Gaspar Huerta did call 911 after escaping the house.
Amborosio Analco was known to verbally abuse his sometime girlfriend Nicole McAffee and one of the victims told Victor Huerta, Analco threatened to kill the whole family if she ever cheated on him. There are unconfirmed reports McAffee was seeing someone else.
There is a memorial fund set up for Vanessa Iverson. You can make donations at Blackhawk Community Credit Union, Guaranty Bank, and Community Bank Delavan. The money will cover funeral costs and benefit Iverson's two children.

    Why Are they still holding the male victims body? They released it to monores funeral home and then called it right back! Please they called my mother to pick up my sister Vanessas belongings and then only released her car keys saying something came up this is all we can give you for now!

    Why hasn't any reporter asked the most relevant question to this situation. Was the shooter, who is hispanic, an illegal alien. I know that the Media is very far left and is very pro illegal immigration so I think I just answered my own question. But please put your bias aside and find out if this shooter should have even been in this country.
