The family had planned to then drive about 200 miles (322 kilometers) to Danville, Illinois, to watch a basketball game Thursday, Hoyt said.

The day after the Sharps departed, the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory urging Americans to "exercise increased caution" when traveling in the state of Quintana Roo, which also includes Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen. "This family is an instrumental part of our Southwestern family, and we are all grieving their loss". "They were to be right here enjoying us play basketball today", Lorensen stated.

Authorities said there were no signs of violence and the victims showed no visible injuries, though the corpses were already decomposing.

In the predawn hours, Tulum police found the bodies of the children in front of the television at the apartment inside a complex known as Tao Residences.
