Moorhead police are investigating the deaths of a family of seven over the weekend that the city's mayor described as devastating news for the community.
"This is an absolute horrible tragedy, made even more poignant since it is close to the holidays," Mayor Shelly Carlson wrote in a statement sent to the Star Tribune. "My heart aches for the family and friends who received this devastating news over the weekend."
Officials are offering few details in the preliminary investigation, but so far have said that seven family members — four adults and three children — were found dead. Police said there were no signs of violence or forced entry.
