Authorities in Pennsylvania on Tuesday confirmed that a Marine reservist suspected of killing his ex-wife and five of her relatives was found dead with "self-inflicted cutting wounds," ending a massive manhunt that kept the region on edge for two days.

The body of 35-year-old Bradley William Stone was found around 1:30 p.m. in a wooded area about a half-mile from his home in Pennsburg, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said.

"This is just a horrific tragedy that this community has had to endure," she said. "We're really numb for what we've had to go through over the past two days."

A massive manhunt was sparked at daybreak Monday when Stone set off on a 90-minute shooting and stabbing rampage at three separate homes.

Ferman told reporters at a news conference that nothing could justify such a horrible crime, the killings appeared to be the result of a "very contentious, very protracted" custody battle with Stone's ex-wife for their two children.

Authorities on Tuesday provided the most robust account so far of how the killing rampage unfolded and the rushed response as bodies were discovered in three towns.

Stone's former wife, 33-year-old Nicole Stone, was found shot to death in her Harleysville apartment after a neighbor reported seeing the Marine reservist fleeing with their two young children around 5 a.m., authorities said.

The girls, who were later found safe with Stone's neighbors, remain in protective custody until a judge decides where they should go, Ferman said.

After the initial killings were reported shortly after 4:38 a.m., authorities began to make connections between Bradley Stone and other family members and raced to check on their well-being, Ferman said.

But officers were too late.

Nicole Stone's sister, Patricia Flick, and her sister's husband, Aaron Flick, were found shot and stabbed to death, Ferman said. Their 14-year-old daughter, Nina, was also found dead with stab wounds.

The Flick's 17-year-old son remained hospitalized Tuesday with "quite significant" injuries to his hands and head, Ferman said.

Nicole Stone's mother, 57-year-old Joanne Hill, and grandmother, 75-year-old Patricia Hill, were also found shot and stabbed to death.

After clearing several locations that the Iraq War veteran was suspected of being barricaded in, Ferman said authorities made the decision to go public with his photo.

On Tuesday, authorities from multiple agencies started a grid search of the region and Bradley Stone's body was found around 1:30 p.m., Ferman said.

Asked if Bradley Stone was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Ferman said she was unaware of any treatment or diagnosis.

Ferman did say, however, that she had no information that would suggest there was a "legal prohibition" from Bradley Stone owning firearms.

Ferman also said that it was clearly "a premeditated killing, a planned killing," although she could not say for how long in advance.

Stone and his ex-wife had been fighting for custody of their children since she filed for divorce in 2009.

Bradley Stone remarried last year, according to his Facebook page and court records, and has an infant son, the Associated Press reported. Neither his wife nor the son was injured in Monday's attack.

Despite the new family, Bradley Stone continued to wage battle in court with his ex-wife.

He filed an emergency motion earlier this month for custody of their two daughters, but a judge denied it, Ferman said Tuesday.

Neighbors told the AP that Nicole Stone lived in constant fear of her ex-husband, sometimes asking the maintenance staff at her apartment complex to check her place because she was afraid he might be lying in wait.

"He would call and just harass her and threaten her," neighbor Michele Brewster told the AP. "She shouldn't have had to live in terror."

Another neighbor, Evan Weron, another neighbor in Harleysville, recalled Nicole Stone's constant pleas for help.

"She would tell anybody who would listen that he was going to kill her," Weron said, "that she was really afraid for her life."

Stone was found about a half mile from his home around 1 p.m. Officers had been methodically searching the area following yesterday's SWAT response.

He was found with a knife as well as a gun, Ferman said. Another handgun belonging to him has not been recovered, she said.

According to court records, Stone and his wife had been in an ongoing custody dispute, which Ferman described as protracted and contentious. Last week, a judge denied his emergency request for custody, she said.

"There's no valid explanations," Ferman said. "There's no justification for snuffing out these six innocent lives and injuring another child."

Though a coroner is still determining each victim's cause of death, Ferman said Stone's ex-wife Nicole Stone had been shot multiple times. Her mother was shot as well, and her grandmother had a gunshot wound and cut to her neck. Nicole Stone's sister was also shot, and her brother-in-law was shot in the head and hands as well as cut. Their 14-year-old daughter had cutting wounds, and their 17-year-old son remains in a hospital in serious condition with cutting wounds to his head and hands. Ferman said it appeared he had been trying to fight off his attacker.

Stone's two children with his ex-wife are in protective custody. The Souderton Telford Rotary is working on establishing a fund for them.

Ferman said there is an active homicide investigation as well as a search for Stone who "could be in the area or elsewhere," Ferman says.

A reported sighting of Stone in Doylestown in Bucks County did not seem to be valid and the hunt there has been called off.

Ferman also said that the community should be cautious and vigilant as the suspect, who has access to firearms and cutting instruments, is on the run.

The autopsies of all six bodies of Stone's victims have not been completed yet, Ferman says, and no charges have been filed against Stone.

"As we stand here, we do not know where he is," Ferman told reporters.

She added that authorities were following up on locations where Stone was known to spend time. He may be using a cane or walker, or he may not, Ferman said.

His vehicle was recovered earlier in the day, she said, and it was not known if he had other means of transportation.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call 911, she said, and Stone should be considered armed and dangerous.

Stone, who served as a U.S. Marine reservist, was discharged as a sergeant in 2011, a Marine spokesperson said.

He joined the Marine reserves in 2002, and at one point served in Iraq. He specialized in meteorology as applied to artillery fire, officials said.

The shootings are reportedly related to a domestic dispute between the suspected gunman and his ex-wife, who was one of the victims.

The alleged gunman was reportedly in a custody battle for his two children with his ex, according to neighbors.

Their children's cries could be heard from the house during the shooting. A neighbor reportedly saw the alleged suspect trying to leave with the estranged couple's two children. However, the children were later found to be safe near the house, 6 ABC reported.

The two victims found in Lansdale are believed to be the suspect's former mother-in-law and her 75-year-old mother.

Other victims were found in Stone's former brother-in-law's house in Souderton, although it is unclear who they were.
