Three Swiss citizens have been found dead in the US state of Utah, according to local police and the Swiss Foreign Ministry.
The three individuals, who were all members of the same family, were found dead in their home in the town of Mapleton on Saturday. Local police said a fourth person had also been found dead on the scene. Law enforcement officials entered the home to investigate after neighbours said they had not heard from the family in a while.
The 45-year-old father of the family had gotten a job in Utah and moved his wife and two children to the United States from Switzerland.
Local police are investigating the deaths and the Swiss consulate in San Francisco is in contact with authorities on the scene, according to the Foreign Ministry.
