On Wednesday, police said that "based on the facts and evidence that have been gathered so far, it appears to have been a murder suicide with Mary [Day] being the victim."

Police added that the case was still under investigation.

The two were found inside a residence near 2000 East and 200 South about 9:10 a.m. Monday.

Neighbors said they were stunned at the news of the Days’ deaths, telling the StGeorgeUtah.com news site that the couple were "salt of the earth people."

Neighbor Tim Gee said he often saw the Days walking hand-in-hand and that they were pleasant, friendly and always willing to help with community projects.
