The Coroner in Scott County, Illinois, Justin Daws, officially released the names of the five murder victims in the Manchester, Ill., homicide investigation.

The bodies of the three adults and two children included 29-year-old James Roy Ralston, the father of two children; 23-year-old Brittney Luark, mother of two children and granddaughter of Jo Ann Sinclair; 67-year-old Jo Ann Sinclair, grandmother to Brittney and great-grandmother to the two children; five-year-old Nolan J. Ralston, son of James and Brittney; and 1-year-old Brantley Ralston, son of James Ralston and Brittney Luark.

The Cornor's Office also confirmed that Brittney Luark was also pregnant.

The sixth victim is a six-year-old child who remains hospitalized. According to officials, her condition has been upgraded from serious to fair condition.

According to the Associated Press, the girl has not been identified. But Winchester Community School District Superintendent David Roberts says she is a first-grader in his district and the older sister of the two young boys who were killed along with their parents and great grandmother.

The bodies of the victims were found early Wednesday, April 24, 2013, inside a home in the small community of Manchester.

The 43-year-old suspect was killed in a shootout with police later that morning.

Illinois State Police and Scott County law enforcement officials continue to investigate.
