WEST POINT -- Crisis teams are at three schools in West Point to help students deal with the tragedy that happened Wednesday night that left two children dead and their older brother in custody.

Davis County Sheriff's deputies found late Wednesday the missing 15-year-old boy they are calling a person of interest in the suspicious deaths of his younger brothers.

Christopher Williams, spokesman for Davis School District, said crisis teams were sent to Lakeside Elementary, West Point Elementary and West Point Junior High School.

The 10-year-old boy who was found dead in his home at about 25 North block of 1600 West attended fourth grade at Lakeside Elementary School, Williams said.

Aza Vidinhar, the 15-year-old, who is being called a person of interest by deputies, attended ninth-grade at West Point Junior High School. He was found shortly before midnight, said Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Sue Poulsen. He was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation.

A press conference will be held later on Thursday.

Poulsen said a 4-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy were found dead by their mother around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at a home in the 25 North block of 1660 West. They were last seen alive by the mother when she left the house around 4:45 p.m.

Police are unsure whether Aza Vidinhar was involved in the deaths of his brothers, but are calling him a person of interest and were concerned for his safety, Poulsen said.
