Between 100 and 150 people have gathered in Utah in the United States to remember Kelly Boren and her family.
The bodies of Kelly Boren, 32, Joshua “Jaden” Boren, 7, Haley Boren, 5, and Marie King, 55, and Joshua Boren, 34, were found inside their house late Thursday night.
Police believe Josh Boren, who was an officer with the Lindon Police Department and had previously worked for the Utah County Sheriff's Office, shot and killed his family in the upstairs area of their house before turning the gun on himself.
At a candlelit vigil, mourners signed a book, writing down their favorite memories of Kelly, and left photographs of her.
A funeral for Kelly, Haley, and Jaden Boren and Marie King will be held Wednesday.
A US police officer who is believed to have killed his wife, mother-in-law and two children before turning the gun on himself was experiencing marriage problems in the months leading up to the shooting, his boss said.
There were no red flags - everything about him was outstanding. We're a small department, our families are one big family so we knew his entire family as well. It's just a tremendous shock.
I was aware that there had been a recent period of separation, but I am not aware of any violence in the past or anything like that.
His wife Kelly was a friend of mine and a friend of my wife so anything major that would have happened I probably would have known about.
I know as a family they went to Disneyland over the Christmas holidays.

Officials said they did not find a suicide note at the crime scene.
