Sandra Yi ReportingPolice unsealed more than 300 pages of new documents in the Mark Hacking case. It happened as family members began visiting Mark in jail for the first time since his arrest.

This document reveals more about the police investigation. There are subpoenas for phone records, credit card bills and surveillance video.

As the judicial process continues, Mark Hacking's family is showing him unconditional love.

Lance Hacking: "Our main goal is to let him know that our family is still here and that we absolutely love him, and we're doing everything we can to stand by him in that way."

As Mark Hacking sits in the Salt Lake County Jail, his family's love remains unwavering.

Stephanie Hacking, Mark's Sister-In-Law: “In fact, I feel more endeared and more love toward him now more than ever.”

Mark's brother Lance, his wife and their nine-month old son saw Mark for the first time since his arrest nearly two weeks ago. Their visit today lasted 30 minutes.

Lance Hacking: "Obviously it's rough. Jail's a rough place and everything that's happened of course is very tough."

Lance says their brotherly bond remains strong. It was Lance and his brother Scott who heard Mark's confession about killing Lori, then went to police. Lance says Mark is understanding.

Lance Hacking: "He understood that we acted out of choosing what we felt was the right thing to do. He understands that we felt that our actions were also guided towards helping him heal."

The family is also coping with a double loss. Lance says he not only lost his sister-in-law, but part of his brother.

Lance Hacking: "We feel a loss because we understand the suffering he's going through, and that weighs heavy on our hearts as well."

A memorial service for Lori Hacking is going on tomorrow morning, at the LDS Windsor Center at 60 East 1600 North, in Orem. The doors will be open at 9:00.
