  • The bodies of Kevin Wayne Sharp his wife Amy Marie Sharp their 12-year-old son Sterling and their 7-year-old daughter Adrianna were found dead

An Iowa couple and their two children were found dead in their condominium in Mexico - hours after family members had reported them missing. After the family didn't arrive as expected, relatives filed a missing persons report through the U.S. Embassy in Mexico.

Police told CNN affiliate KCCI in Des Moines there were "no signs of traumatic injury" to the family.

Police quickly made contact with the U.S. State Department, Creston police said in a statement. However, nobody heard from them after that, and they did not make their flight from Cancun to St. Louis. They also tried to locate the family by tracing their cell phones but found there was "no movement on their phones". 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 situation with the Kevin and Amy Sharp family is weighing heavily on our hearts and minds", said Todd Lorensen, the Southwestern coach. Kevin Sharp, who owns a beer distribution company, failed to check in with his employees that morning as planned, which was unlike him, Weland said.

The Sharps were scheduled to travel from St. Louis to Danville, Illinois for a Southwestern Community College basketball game Thursday, the Des Moines Register reported.


"We're determined. We have love and support and family and friends and we will get through this".

Besides working in beer distribution, Kevin Sharp was a race vehicle driver at southwestern Iowa's Adams County Speedway, where he finished fourth in last year's stock auto series standings. Sharp, who was a stock auto racer and a board member for the association, for about a decade. He said he knew Sharp and his family his entire life and that he and Kevin shared a love for the University of Iowa and the Kansas City Chiefs. "His family was involved - his son was working on the race vehicle with him, cheering him on".

"Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process", she wrote. She said the Sharps had last been heard from March 15. Sharp messaged back, saying the plans for the project looked great, and that he was traveling to Mexico.

Last month, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an investigation that identified more than 150 reports from travelers who said they blacked out or became violently ill after having just one or two drinks at dozens of Mexican resorts in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerta Vallarta and Los Cabos.
