Iowa Family of 4 Vacationing in Mexico Found Dead in Condo

Iowa Family of 4 Vacationing in Mexico Found Dead in Condo

Police in Creston, Iowa, say a family of four that was reported missing overnight has been found dead in Mexico.

It's not known how the family, from the U.S. state of Iowa, died.

Kevin Sharp then failed - uncharacteristically - to check in with his employer, and the family missed a long-awaited basketball game, but other family members waited until Thursday evening before registering a missing persons report with the US Embassy in Mexico.

The bodies of Kevin, Amy, Sterling and Adrianna Sharp of Creston were found in a rented condo in Mexico Friday. The bodies of the couple were in the bedroom.

Kevin Wayne Sharp, 41, his wife Amy Marie Sharp, 38, and their kids, Sterling Wayne Sharp, 12, and Adrianna Marie Sharp, 7, were found dead in a tourism building in Tulum, Mexico.

A relative of the family posted to Facebook that the family had been located and that there weren't signs of foul play.

Amy Sharp's sister told the Creston News Advertiser that the family flew to Cancun from St. Louis and was renting a vehicle and driving to Tulum, where they were renting a condo.

According to ABC Des Moines affiliate WOI, the family left for Mexico on March 15 and were expected back in the US on Wednesday.

It has always been our belief that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court acted in the best interest of the citizens of our commonwealth. The Supreme Court announced, "the application for stay presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied".

"Autopsies are being performed in Mexico and results are pending", Creston police said in a statement. The last contact the family had with the Sharps was a picture the son posted to Snapchat of his feet by the water that day, Weland said.

The family of four was found in the condo they rented in a tourist complex in Tulum, Mexico.

The family didn't show up for the game at Southwest Community College and did not notify any relatives in the US about any change in plans to their trip.

"We didn't start putting two and two together until ... now", she said.

Peterson also said when they called the family members cell phones, it traced them back to Mexico.

" On Wednesday at 7 p.m., Amy sent out a message to our mommy that stated, 'We made it to our apartment, '" Hoyt stated.

According to KCCI-News in Des Moines, there was no sign of struggle in the room. They were staying in a rental house they found through a vacation rental company.

An advisory on the State Department's website last updated this month advises caution for Americans traveling to Mexico.
