KALISPELL — Authorities are releasing more information about a Tuesday incident that left four people dead in Olney.

Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino said 42-year-old Emily Mohler, 41-year-old Cody Nevins and 3-year-old Piper Barge are believed to have been stabbed to death by 39-year-old Kameron Barge.

Kameron Barge was found deceased about a half-mile away from the home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was the ex-husband of Emily Mohler.

A 7-year-old, whose name will not be released at this time, was able to escape the scene and run to a neighbor’s home.

Heino said they’re treating the case as a triple homicide, suicide. Multiple law enforcement agencies are still investigating the scene.

All four deceased people have been taken to the state crime lab in Missoula for autopsies.
