SALT LAKE CTIY (AP) — Police say the deaths of five members of a Utah family whose bodies were found last month do not appear to be accidental or natural. Court documents obtained Wednesday show the five members of the Strack family, including three children, were found in their Springville home, covered in bedding with cups of liquid next to the bodies. Investigators say Benjamin and Kristi Strack were in the bed. The three children were lying around the bed with the bedding pulled up to their necks.

Police say it appears someone positioned the bodies that way after they died. Springville police Lt. Dave Caron says he can’t comment on the cause of death until results of a toxicology test come back. Springville is a small city about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City.
