American Family of Four Found Murdered inside Mexico

Tragic news is coming out of Iowa - where an innocent American family - including two small children - have been found murdered - leaving law enforcement lost for answers as to what could have happened to this seemingly perfect all-American family.

41-year-old father of two Kevin Wayne Sharp, his wife and mother of two 38-year-old Amy Marie Sharp, and their precious children 12-year-old Sterling Wayne Sharp, and 7-year-old Adrianna Marie Sharp were all found deceased inside of a Mexican condominium in Talum, Mexico.

According to the State Attorney's office in Quintana Roo, a Mexican state on the Yucatan Peninsula, there's no logical explanation as to what could have killed the family, which have investigators scratching their heads.

After the discovery of the bodies of the four, there were not only zero signs of violence or injury, but no sign of forced entry into the rental unit in which the family was vacationing.

"The Sharps have been located. They were found last night in their condo deceased. There was no foul play! At this time that is all the information we have,” said the State Attorney's Office.

The family was reported missing by their loved ones in Iowa after hearing no response from them, according to a relative, Ashli Peterson, who asked that the privacy of their family be respected during this time of grieving.

"Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process. Thank you for all the posts, shares, and kind words," Ashli Peterson, a relative wrote on Facebook.

The US State Department has also since confirmed that the bodies of the family were now in Akumal, Mexico, which is near Tulum on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, awaiting autopsy results to attempt to find a cause of death.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">(3 of 3) Police said autopsies are being done in Mexico.

Mexico is known to be a dangerous place for American tourists, although it's typically a ransom-style situation, and the silent deaths of these Americans, with little to no foul-play being suspected, raises eyebrows among many who distrust Mexican authorities.

Amy Sharp's cousin Jana Weland told<a href="http://abcnews.go.com/US/american-family-found-dead-mexico/story?id=53967241"> ABC News </a>that the family went to Mexico to meet friends at the beach during their holiday, and that there were reportedly no signs of forced entry into the condominium.

"They went to sleep and never woke up," she said.

The family was set to return to the US this past Wednesday in St. Louis, and from there head to a Southwestern Community College men's basketball tournament in Danville, Illinois, but they never arrived.

"The situation with the Kevin and Amy Sharp family is weighing heavily on our hearts and minds," said Todd Lorensen, the Southwestern basketball coach. "Members of their families have been strong Southwestern supporters for years. I consider them friends. They were to be here watching us play basketball this week."

For now, the family is left without answers as Mexican authorities as well as the State Department work to unravel this mystery, and seek who may be responsible for the tragic loss of life.

Why does the article claim murder and then go on to say no sign of foul play? How is that murder?

No sign of foul play, no traumatic injuries, no sign of violence. So how do they come to the conclusion they were murdered. Poisoned, asphyxiated?

Carbon monoxide poisened in hotel room

Recent reports indicate that this was a CO gas leak, possibly from the stove or water heater in the condo. Absolutely tragic loss of this lovely family.
