4 people dead in Mapleton”

A Utah County family of four was found shot to death and police are investigating it as a suspected case of murder-suicide.

According to a statement by the Mapleton Police Department, officers were dispatched to a home at 1502 N. USA 89 Thursday night to check on a family which had not been seen for days.

Jackson says one family member had failed to show up for work and neighbors reported the family's cars had not moved and lights had not been turned off for days.

"Once inside officers found four individuals that were deceased from what appears to [have been] gunshot wounds", Jackson said.

When they arrived, no one answered the door and officers began making an effort to contact family or friends of those that lived in the house, according to the statement. A large dog was dead next to them. The dead were one adult male, one adult female, one teenage female and one very young male.

Authorities are investigating this as a possible murder-suicide.
