Transcript for Solving the Mystery of Family Found Dead in Utah
Utah where five family members, mother, father, three children found dead in their home, apparently poisoned. ABC's Brandi Hitt has the story. Reporter: It was a devastating scene. Three children and their parents found dead in the master bedroom of their home last month. And bizarre details say it may be murder. The police believed they died from accidental or intentional poisoning and someone positioned the body after they were deceased. This is the first time I have gone into a home and found an entire family dead in one room. Reporter: Relatives found the parents dead in their bed. Their three children, Benson, Emory and Zion lying around the bed covered with sheets. Emory was beautiful and loved every little animal out there and was just amazing. Zion was just sweet. And Benson was just a giant goof ball. And it was awesome. Reporter: Family members describe the father, Benjamin, as a jokester and the mother as a good mother. It's bizarre. They are finding trouble, evidence. 12 opened and empty boxes of cold, flu and allergy medication, and a baggy of marijuana. And a purple bucket with a yellow liksd and a pair of yellow slippers. They initially thought a carbon monoxide leak caused the deaths. But there was no carbon monoxide leak. Adding she couldn't believe she would do this to the kids. But Valerie wouldn't clarify to the police who she was talking about. Investigators now await autopsy and toxicology results to pinpoint what caused their deaths. Brandi Hitt, ABC news, los Angeles. It's just an unbelievable story. Thank you.
