A father found dead in a grisly murder-suicide at his Orlando home killed his wife and three children before taking his own life, police said Wednesday.

Donovan Michael Ramirez, 45, killed his 39-year-old wife, Stephanie Renee Ramirez, as well as the couple’s three children, Alyssa Berumen, 22, Sunny Ramirez, 11, and Shelby Rose Ramirez, 7, before dying by suicide, Orlando police said in a statement to The Post.

Investigators said a firearm was recovered Tuesday at the southeast Orlando home, where cops were called to conduct a welfare check. Officers found the five bodies inside the residence.

“At this time, it appears this is a domestic violence-related incident,” police said.

A medical examiner will determine how the family of five died.

“Investigators worked overnight to gather as much information as possible,” Orlando police said. “As this is still an active and ongoing investigation, no further updates will be provided at this time.”

Neighbors said the family had recently moved to Florida from out of state, WESH reported.
