Babies Gabriel and Tryce dead on arrival at hospital
Neighbours said both babies looked well
Authorities are probing the ‘suspicious’ deaths of one-month-old identical twin boys, whose mother called 911 to report they were not breathing.
Kiarra Kimbell, of Pocatello, Idaho, called the emergency services at 8:35am yesterday morning and the babies were taken to hospital.
But Gabriel and Tryce Medrano - who neighbours said looked to be in good health on Sunday - were pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Autopsies were planned to determine the cause of the deaths. The area around their mother’s home was cordoned off with police tape.
Ms Kimbell lives with two other children and she travelled in one of the ambulances taking the twins to hospital, reported the Idaho State Journal.
Mrs Kimbell's Facebook profile says is a divorcee before having a ‘crazy’ relationship with another man. Now she is ‘single and trying to start over’.
'Daddy and Mommy love you guys and you will always be in our hearts'
Her last post on November 10 said: 'Wow, it is amazing to have two babies. Hard work and lost sleep but way worth it. I love them so much.'
The father, Ross Medrano, posted on his Facebook page: 'Daddy and Mommy love you guys and you will always be in our hearts.'
He also wrote: 'I just want to thank everyone for all the love and the support. Kiarra and I are very thank (sic) for all the love and support.’
A month before the babies’ birth in October he posted pictures of himself dancing with friends and lists himself as ‘single’ on his profile.Tragic: Gabriel and Tryce Medrano - who neighbours said looked to be in good health on Sunday - were pronounced dead on arrival at the hospitalDistraught: The father, Ross Medrano, posted on his Facebook page: 'Daddy and Mommy love you guys and you will always be in our hearts'
First responders found both babies, Gabriel and Tryce Medrano, non-responsive in an adult bed, Lt. Paul Manning with the Pocatello Police told the Daily News.
"It's suspicious because we have no trauma, and while they were born prematurely, the doctor says they were in good health. We have to look at it suspiciously," Manning said.
"The autopsies were last night. We haven't found anything yet. We have to wait for toxicology results that take about six weeks," Bannock County Coroner Kim Quick told The News.
Investigators already have ruled out carbon monoxide poisoning.
"We monitored the home, and it was not present. There was no fireplace, no gas, no possible source," Quick said.
Asked if the infants were on any medication, he said the probe was ongoing.
"We have to wait and get all the facts together," he said.
Neighbors told the Idaho State Journal that the twin babies appeared to be in good health Sunday.
"Wow it is amazing to have two babies. Hard work and lost sleep but way worth it. I love them so much," Kimbell, 27, wrote on Facebook about two weeks after giving birth Oct. 27.She listed her relationship status as single. Older postings hint at her on-again, off-again relationship with the boys' father Ross Medrano.
