SANPETE COUNTY, Utah -- The small town of Fairview is mourning the death of Marilee Poulson who was killed in an apparent murder-suicide Monday night, officials say.

According to the Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office, Poulson’s son Kyle, 27, shot her then himself inside their home.

None of the family’s friends or neighbors would talk about what happened or how they will remember Poulson. They did say Poulson was active in her church and the wife of an influential business man.

The sheriff’s office declined to comment on camera about this case.

The sheriff’s office did tweet out, “Our deepest heartfelt condolences go out to the family during this time.”

The tweet also stated the sheriff’s office was waiting for the state medical examiner’s office to make a final determination on whether it was a murder-suicide.

The investigation is ongoing.
