MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Four-month-old twins were found dead in a crib Thursday afternoon in their second-floor apartment at 313 S. Raleigh St., officials said.
There did not appear to be any signs of foul play, but officials will investigate to determine what caused the death of the baby boys, said Berkeley County Coroner Sandy Brining.
"We're talking about two dead children here," Brining said. "You have to look at everything."
Martinsburg City Police identified the twins as Hakeem and Nahim Newton.
Police said they have classified the case as an "unattended death investigation," but would not release additional details.
The bodies of the infants were to be sent to the state Medical Examiner's office in Charleston today for an autopsy, Brining said. Brining said she does not expect the results of the autopsy to be available until early next week.
