    Family poisoned themselves because they feared ‘pending apocalypse,’ examiners find

    SPRINGVILLE, Utah — Medical examiners have ruled that a family of five found dead in their Utah home all died from poisoning, likely because the parents were concerned about a “pending apocalypse.” Parents Benjamin and Kristi Strack died from self-inflicted poisoning, according to a report by KSTU which cited authorities and documents released on Tuesday. The deaths of the youngest two children were ruled homicides. The 14-year-old’s death was ruled undetermined. The Strack’s 18-year-old son found all five bodies in […]

Convening a rare press conference on Tuesday at church headquarters in Salt Lake City, Mormon leaders pledged to support anti-discrimination laws for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, as long the laws also protect the rights of religious groups. In exchange, the Mormon church wants gay rights advocates — and the government — to back off. “When religious people are […]

Residents of Barnstable on Cape Cod, for instance, had drifts of up […]
