Police in Pennsylvania have released shocking new information about the mysterious deaths of two young siblings who were found unconscious in their Berks County home late last month.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Connor Snyder, 8; and Brinley Synder, 4, were found unresponsive on September 23. Though medial responders are believed to have revived them at some point, both siblings died four days later — just minutes apart.
According to a search warrant application obtained by CBS Philadelphia, the children’s mother discovered them hanging in the basement. The official cause of death is pending a forensic evaluation, as an autopsy completed last week was reportedly inconclusive.
Earlier this week, the Morning Call reported that police were seeking electronic devices, including an X-box, for examination. According to a search warrant obtained by the news outlet, police also wanted to examine a dog who had been living in the home at the time the children were found unconscious. Investigators reportedly sought to determine the husky-pit bull mix’s “actual weight and size.”
The dog had since been “given away,” according to the report.
No arrests have been made.
This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
