The bodies of Kevin Wayne Sharp, his wife Amy Marie Sharp, son Sterling, 12, and daughter Adrianna, 7, were found in holiday accommodation in the coastal town of Akumal near Tulum on Friday, Creston Police Department said in a statement.
On Friday, Peterson posted a Facebook post stating the family was located.
Mexican and USA police say there was no sign of traumatic injury and no foul play is suspected at this time. We extend our honest condolences to friends and family.
Peterson also wrote that the family was supposed to return to St. Louis on Wednesday, but no one had heard from them.
"Sharp dominated the feature to collect the $500 payday while the rest of the field put on an exciting battle", the newspaper said.
Kimberly Adams, an Iowa newlywed who just returned from the Grand Bahia Principe, described the accommodation as "literally straight off a postcard" and said news of the family's death was a "shocking thing".
"To my knowledge, they went to sleep and never woke up", she said.

"They were fun-loving kids and the family was a sports fan family like you wouldn't believe", Avila said.
The family's mysterious deaths come amid increased travel warnings to Quintana Roo state, which is home to Tulum - a popular destination for those looking to explore Mayan ruins or snorkel in limestone sinkholes. A missing person report was filed after they did not show up. It's unclear whether those tourists were deliberately drugged or became random victims of tainted alcohol, according to the investigation.
Local reports in Mexico said investigators are trying to determine if food poisoning or a gas leak were responsible. During the initial inspection, there were no signs of injury or violence on the bodies or in the room, according to a Facebook post.
The Sharps were arranged to take a trip from St. Louis to Danville, Illinois for a Southwestern Community College basketball video game Thursday, the Des Moines Register reported. "It's hard to talk about".
