The police search warrant was unsealed Tuesday.

(Mark Eddington | The Salt Lake Tribune) Law enforcement officials continue to investigate an Enoch City home on Thursday, January 5, 2023 where eight family members were found dead in an apparent murder suicide. A search warrant unsealed on Tuesday reveals multiple Google searches father Michael Haight apparently made days before police said he had killed seven relatives, including his five children, before killing himself.

A police search warrant released on Tuesday details multiple Google searches Enoch father Michael Haight apparently performed days before authorities said he killed his family and then himself.

The Google searches, according to the unsealed search warrant, were conducted on Haight’s cell phone and included: “how loud is a 9mm”, “how loud is a 40mm”, “can you hear a gunshot in a house” and “can neighbors hear gunfire.” ‘, along with other related requests.

The sentences were searched on December 30, five days before Haight fatally shot seven members of his family on January 4 before shooting himself, the warrant said. They were recovered after Haight’s phone was taken to the Utah Tech Digital Forensics Lab to have its contents extracted.

The seven family members found dead with Haight in the home have been identified by authorities as Haight’s wife, Tausha Haight; Tausha’s mother, 78-year-old Gail Earl; and Michael and Tausha’s five children: Gavin, 4; twins Sienna and Ammon, 7; Briley, 12; and Macie, 17.

The murders happened two weeks after Tausha filed for divorce.

The search warrant released Tuesday suggests authorities have seized several other cell phones and tablets from the home. In the document, authorities also requested permission to search Michael Haight’s work computer and any USB or electronic storage devices in his office.

“It is likely that these items contain evidence of crimes related to domestic violence and intentional homicide based on the circumstances listed above,” the document said.

When police entered Michael Haight’s office on January 5, they reportedly found diary entries on his desk, along with the Family Foundation’s portfolio and printouts of an article entitled “How to Deal with Petty People”.

Another search warrant unsealed in January reported that one of the Haight daughters had texted her friend saying she was concerned that her father was acting strangely.

Tausha Haight, her mother and the five Haight children were buried together in La Verkin on January 13.
