Utah family found dead remembered at vigil
October 3, 2014

PROVO, Utah (AP) — More than 100 family members and friends gathered in a Provo park Thursday evening to remember five members of a Springville family mysteriously found dead at home last weekend.

People lit candles and shared stories about the Strack family during the evening vigil at Provo's Pioneer Park.

Authorities say the five did not die violently. Officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine what killed the family.

Carbon monoxide poisoning hasn't been ruled out but tests for that at the family's home came back negative.

The five dead were 37-year-old Benjamin Strack, his 36-year-old wife, Kristi, and three of their children: 14-year-old Benson, 12-year-old Emery and 11-year-old Zion.

An older son discovered the bodies in the parents' bedroom of their home, about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City.
