HINESVILLE, Ga. (WSAV) — Multiple agencies are investigating the tragic death of two toddlers who were found dead inside a car on Sunday afternoon.
Police have since identified the victims as 3-year-old girls Raelynn and Payton Keyes.
According to the Hinesville Police Department, officers were called to a home on the 200 block of Augusta Way in the Griffin Park subdivision shortly after 1:30 p.m. Sunday. When they arrived, officers found the two children unresponsive inside a vehicle located in the backyard of the home.
Detectives told News 3 a caregiver found the children and made the call to police.
“This is actually not the home of the caregiver or the children, this is someplace they come from time to time and do stay for extended periods of time and they were here visiting when this unfortunate tragedy took place,” Capt. Tracey Howard with the Hinesville Police Department said.
