EL RENO, Okla. (AP) -- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now confirming a woman and her four children were killed in their El Reno apartment and a 25-year-old suspect is being sought.

Joshua Steven Durcho of El Reno is being sought as is the woman's missing 1989 white Ford Thunderbird.

The victims are identified as 25-year-old Summer Garas, her daughters 7-year-old Kirsten Rust; 6-year-old Autumn Rust; and 3-year-old Evynn Garas; and her 4-year-old son Teagin Rust.

An El Reno police officer sent to the apartment to check on the welfare of the family found the five bodies shortly after 4 yesterday afternoon.

A suspected cause of the deaths has not been released and Durcho's relationship with the victims hasn't been disclosed.

Brandy Higgins, whose mother lives in the same apartment building where the five were killed,  said her mother heard a loud boom before police arrived Monday afternoon.
