Gas inhalation blamed for death of Iowa family visiting Mexico

Kevin Wayne Sharp, 41, Amy Marie Sharp, 38, and their children, Sterling Wayne Sharp, 12, and Adrianna Marie Sharp, 7, were found dead by authorities after conducting a welfare check Friday at the Tulum condominium where they were vacationing. The family died after inhaling toxic gas, according to the Quintana Roo prosecutor's office.

Mexican authorities said they were poisoned by toxic gas as they slept.

The family is working on getting the bodies back to the United State for a funeral.

Weland said the family is hoping to hold a funeral at Southwestern Community College in Creston, Iowa.

The bodies of the American family of four found dead in their Mexico vacation condo on Friday will be returned to the US this week.

The sister, Renee Hoyt, said the Sharps were scheduled to depart from the Cancun airport last Wednesday and fly to St. Louis on a nonstop flight. "We are monitoring this devastating situation closely and have removed the property from our site for any future bookings while we wait for more details", HomeAway said in a statement. The bodies were taken to a morgue in Playa del Carmen pending the arrival of family members.

Photos released by Mexican officials show crews and firefighters wearing masks while checking a gas stove in the condo.




"In fact, a high concentration of this toxic (gas) was found in the room", said Pech. They were staying in a rental house they found through a vacation rental company.

Kevin Sharp was also an avid stock-car racer, known as "the Sharpshooter" in the local scene, and often competed in events in his neighboring county, friend and fellow racer Cliff Baldwin told the Des Moines Register.

Then the family failed to attend a basketball game Wednesday night in Danville, Illinois - a game Weland said the family was looking forward to.

A Madison family is still out of their home after a fire left some serious damage to the house - but crews say it could have been so much worse if it wasn't for a 5-year-old girl.

A candlelight vigil was held in the family's memory Saturday night at the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa, where Kevin Sharp was a popular race vehicle driver. "His family was involved - his son was working on the race vehicle with him, cheering him on".

Harris said he last messaged Sharp on March 14, about a racetrack project.
