Hundreds Remember Slain Southern California Family

Posted: Updated:

LAGUNA NIGUEL (FOX 11 / AP) - A family of four whose bodies were found in shallow graves late last year has been memorialized by friends and relatives at a Southern California church.

The Orange County Register says about 200 people filled the Vineyard Community Church in Laguna Niguel Saturday to remember Joseph and Summer McStay and their two young sons.

Michael McStay, Joseph's brother, tells the newspaper he found peace "remembering the goodness" in the lives of his loved ones.

A paddle-out in the family's memory was held later in the day off San Clemente pier.

The couple and their two boys, ages 3 and 4, vanished nearly four years ago.

In November their skeletons were found in the desert outside Victorville, about 100 miles from their San Diego County home.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department is investigating the deaths as homicides.

    "We heard this blood curling scream' says Richard Davis, who was golfing at a Griffith park golf course. He turned to see a coyote with a small black animal in his muzzle, shaking it. "Oh my God", you can hear him saying on the phone video he started recording.
