Police declined to answer additional questions about the documents.

Timothy Griffith's stepmother Linda Sue Prater said Wednesday she never knew him to be violent or suffer from mental illness, though he hadn't been in close contact with family members after moving back to the US in July, she said.

The family of four was found dead in November, just months after Timothy Griffith's job with Nestle took them from Switzerland to Mapleton, Utah, about 90km south of Salt Lake City. Police also found the bodies of their five-year-old son Alexendre Griffith and Jessica Griffith's 16-year-old daughter Samantha Badel.

Timothy Griffith shot all three with one gun before killing himself with a different weapon, a shotgun, according to police. He also killed the family dog, police said.

"He just never seemed like the type that would do something like that," Prater said. "A thing like this eats at you every day because you don't know what happened."

He had done some unusual things recently, like registering his cell phone under a made-up business name and saying he didn't want anyone to know where he was, she said.
