WEST HAVEN -- A memorial service was held Saturday for a mother and son who were killed in their Roy mobile home earlier this week.

Jeffries and Roddy were killed in their home Nov. 25. Roy police officers discovered their bodies hidden in a closet Monday after neighbors became concerned because they hadn't seen the two for several days.

Relatives told KSL 5 News this week Jeffries and Roddy liked to paint and craft, and had a soft spot for animals. Roddy loved the outdoors, and especially enjoyed fishing and hunting.

Police said the pair may have killed Jeffries and Roddy over prescription drugs.
