    (Central, UT) - The Washington County Sheriff’s Office continues its investigation into an apparent murder/suicide that occurred shortly before noon Thursday in Central, a community north of St. George. The deceased have been identified as 24-year old Landon E. Jorgensen, 25-year old Adria Jordan Parker and 5-year old Eliza Kate Parker.

    Jay Winward, a family friend, had previously identified Jorgensen as one of those who died and said the family expresses "deep sorrow" for the incident.

    "The family feels extreme shock and remorse," Winward said.

    Washington County Sheriff's Detective Nate Abbott said in a news release issued Friday that the decedents were residing at the residence in Central, Utah and the investigation is ongoing. However, the Sheriff's Office is not pursuing any additional suspects in this case. He said the Washington County Sheriff's Office will continue to work closely with the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner and is awaiting autopsy results to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident.
