PAYSON -- U.S. Marshals are hoping to find the people responsible for the murder of a Payson man through guns stolen at the time of the crime.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports marshals have asked informants to be on the lookout for several weapons taken from the home of Kay Mortensen last month.

Initial reports said two men with guns broke into Mortensen's home and slashed his throat, then tied up two other people who were there at the time. The two surviving victims told police the intruders were armed with guns when they broke into the home.

It is the first time the marshals have confirmed guns were stolen at the time of the murder. However, they still will not say how many guns were taken or what types of guns they are.
