Mexican news source Noticaribe is reporting that four U.S. tourists from the same family, were found dead in a condominium of the Bahía Príncipe tourist complex in Tulum, Mexico.

The news source says authorities have not released information about the case, nor has the U.S. Consulate confirmed the information.

It is believed that the deceased are members of a family that was reported missing. That information has not yet been confirmed by authorities.
