Family of 4 found dead in Mapleton home

Family of 4 found dead in Mapleton home

Also, one of the family members had not shown up for work for days.

Police have not released the identities of the victims, but they did say they include an adult male, an adult female, a teenaged girl and a young boy about four years old.

Officers were called to the home around 9 p.m. after neighbors reported that the family had not been seen for days but the lights stayed on and their cars had not moved.

After next of kin were notified of their deaths, authorities identified the family as being: Timothy Griffith, 45; Jessica Griffith, 42; Samantha Badel, 16; and Alexendre Griffith, 5. The light had been turned off for days, raising alarm with a neighbor, who called the police, Jackson said.

When officers arrived at the home, they received no response from inside.

Once inside the house, they found the four individuals and a large dog dead with gunshot wounds, according to the statement.

According to police, the family had recently moved to Mapleton. They tried contacting local friends and family about the family's whereabouts and eventually removed a window and entered the home after they "observed things that caused them concern". "However that ruling will not be made until the medical examiner's office has completed their examination and officers have had a chance to follow up on information collected at the scene". They moved to Utah in July after Timothy Griffith got a job there, he said.

This is a developing story.

He did not offer details about what may have led to the killings or how they unfolded.
