Too many tragedies hitting too close to home lately. In Piute County, Utah a 17-year-old boy was charged with aggravated murder after a 16-year-old girl was found shot to death near a dirt road in southern Utah. It is believed that they were dating.

The Haight family from Enoch, Utah is believed to have been murdered by the husband/father of the family before he committed suicide in the first week of the new year. The Haight Family will be laid to rest this Friday.  Enoch officials announced Monday afternoon that services for Tausha Haight, her mother Gail Earl, and Haight’s five children will be held Friday, Jan. 13th in La Verkin, UT.
