A couple and their three children were found dead in Springville, after having drank a cocktail of drugs “to escape from evil.”
Benjamin and Kristi Strack gave their children to drink from a bucket that contained a mix of lethal drugs. The children, aged 14, 12, and 11 years were the first ones to die from the lethal concentration of methadone. The couple’s fourth child was the only survivor. He told investigators that his mother tried to convince him that it is much better to die than to live through the apocalypse.
Neighbors told police that the couple often talked about an imminent apocalypse.
