A missing family investigation in California is now a murder mystery. The McStay family vanished on February 4, 2010 from their home in California. Joseph McStay, 40, his wife Summer, 43, Gianni, 4 and Joseph, 3, disappeared after authorities said they found e-mails from Joseph and Summer asking about passport information and entry into Mexico. It appeared as if the family left to pursue another life.
All along, investigators were zoning in on the assumption the family left on their own accord. Last week, the San Berandio County Sheriff’s office said they now believe now the McStay’s were murdered. Four bodies were found buried in two shallow graves.
In one grave, two adults were found and confirmed to be Joseph and Summer. In another grave, the bodies of children were found. At this point, it is believed those bodies are Joseph and Giani, but at this point, investigators are still working on a positive identification of the children.
