MAPLETON, Utah — Police in a northern Utah town are investigating after a family of four and a dog were found dead with gunshot wounds in what is believed to be a murder suicide.

Mapleton Police Chief John Jackson said in a statement Friday that officers the night before had found the bodies of a man, woman, teenage girl and young boy inside the family's home after receiving a call to check on them.

Jackson says one family member had failed to show up for work and neighbors reported the family's cars had not moved and lights had not been turned off for days.

Police have not yet released the identities of those involved or offered further details about what led to the killings.

Mapleton has a population of about 9,500 and sits about 10 miles (16.09 kilometers) south of Provo.

Pennsylvania man arrested for murder of wife 34 years ago .
A Pennsylvania man is facing a life sentence for allegations that he murdered his wife more than three decades ago. Carl Rogers, 62, of Shermans Dale, Pennsylvania, was taken into custody early Monday morning and charged with the 1983 murder of Debra Jane Rogers, Pennsylvania State Police announced Tuesday. The arrest came after a 2016 effort by the Pennsylvania State Police to revisit cold case homicides. "These cases never go away, much like the pain of the family members who lost a loved one," Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro told reporters Tuesday.
