Investigators may never know the order of shots fired in a Delavan murder-suicide June 9 when six people were killed in an apartment, Walworth County Coroner John Griebel said.

"It might be looked at, but it's going to be doggone hard to prove," Griebel said. "The only one I can tell you (for certain) is the last shot fired was by the perpetrator, and that was into himself."

The body of Ambrosio Analco, the man suspected of killing five others and then himself, was released Tuesday from the Waukesha County Medical Examiner's Office to a Delavan funeral home. The body is likely being taken to Mexico for a funeral.

Analco's family members earlier said they expected Analco to be buried in Acapulco, where he is from. Analco, 23, immigrated to the United States when he was about 14, family members said.

Griebel would not release more information about the deaths.

The pathologist who examined Analco and all of his victims-his ex-girlfriend Nicole M. McAffee, 19; their twin 6-month-old boys, Argenis "Arie" Analco and Isaiah Christian Analco; McAffee's sister Ashley L. Huerta, 21, and friend Vanessa L. Iverson, 19-still needs to complete reports and finish several forensic tests, Griebel said.

Reports might not be released for several weeks.

The continued examination of Analco's body has not changed what police confirmed four days after the shootings; it was a murder-suicide inside the upstairs apartment 309 S. Second St., Griebel said. Each of the victims was shot with a .380-caliber handgun.

Griebel did not know if medical examiners would ever be able to determine the order of the shootings. Analco also shot his 1-year-old daughter, Jasmine, in the chest. She survived.
