Seven Moorhead family members found dead Saturday in their duplex died of carbon monoxide poisoning, Police Chief Shannon Monroe said Wednesday.
Police found the Hernandez family during an evening welfare check after relatives had not heard from them since Dec. 16, Monroe said during a news conference.
"Most were in their beds and appeared to be sleeping," he said.
