Iowa family of four found dead in Mexican resort

Iowa family of four found dead in Mexican resort

Kevin Sharp then failed - uncharacteristically - to check in with his employer, and the family missed a long-awaited basketball game, but other family members waited until Thursday evening before registering a missing persons report with the US Embassy in Mexico.

Iowa authorities identified the dead as Kevin Sharp, 41, Amy Sharp, 38, and their children, 12-year-old Sterling and 7-year-old Adrianna.

The causes of death will be released after an autopsy, which will be carried out in Mexico.

"There appears to be no signs of trauma", Ver Meer said.

In her post, Peterson says the family was supposed to board back to the US from Cancun, Mexico, at 2:45 p.m. on March 21 and arrive in St. Louis at 6 p.m. that same day for a basketball game in Danville, Illinois, on March 22.

Police acted following the U.S. embassy's report that the family was missing.

A FAMILY of four on a dream holiday have reportedly been found dead, having been missing for a week. "Social media is also inactive".

Amy's mother, Beth Fry, told the Des Moines Register that "half my family is gone".

"Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process", she wrote. "One way or another, we will", Fry said.

An Iowa family was found dead in a condo near Tulum, Mexico.

Relative Ashli Peterson shared the devastating news about the American family in a post on Facebook. Sharp, who was a stock vehicle racer and a board member for the association, for about a decade. Their son Sterling was 12 and their daughter Adrianna was 7.

The Sharp family were big fans of the Southwestern Community College's sports teams.

The State Department issued a travel advisory for several areas in Mexico the day after the Sharps arrived in Tulum, but again, there was no initial indication of any foul play in the family's deaths.

" The scenario with the Kevin and also Amy Sharp household is taxing our hearts and also minds", Southwestern instructor Todd Lorensen informed the Des Moines Register.

"I consider them friends", Lorensen said.

Fry described the family as living "life on the fly".

When the family didn't arrive in St. Louis, family members contacted authorities, she said. The two were friends before getting together.

"During the inspection, (the authorities) found no trace of violence on the bodies or in the room", authorities said. An investigation is under way, with CBS News reporting a gas leak or food poisoning were both considered possibilities.
