ENOCH, Iron County — The bodies of an Enoch family murdered by their father were first discovered by neighbors and not police.

That’s according to a search warrant affidavit served at the home of Tausha Haight on Jan. 4.

On that day, Haight, 40; Haight’s mother, Gail Earl, 78; and Haight’s children — Macie Lynn Haight, 17; Briley Ann Haight, 12; Sienna Belle Haight, 7; Ammon Haight, 7; and Gavin Drew Haight, 4 — were shot to death by the children’s father and Haight’s husband, 42-year-old Michael Orwin Haight, who then took his own life. The bodies were found inside their home at 4923 N. Albert Drive.

A press release issued by Enoch officials on Jan. 5 said, “Concerned family and friends contacted police after not hearing from the victims. Officers entered the residence at approximately 4 p.m. and discovered three adults and five minors deceased inside the home.”
