BRADLEY COUNTY, TN. (WRCB) – Channel 3 is learning more about the death investigation of two Bradley County brothers.
Sheriff's Office Spokesman Bob Gault tells Channel 3 the department received information of possible drug activity at the Keith Valley Road home, where the boys' mother, Tasha Moses, lives.
Gault couldn't give specifics of what was found, but says the Meth Task Force assisted with the investigation.
Gault says this is just one aspect of the ongoing investigation.
Specifics of 3-year-old River and 5-year-old Leland Bates' autopsies have not been released, but the medical examiner's office says both boys' core temperatures were at least 105 degrees. Last week, the sheriff's office said preliminary findings showed the boys died of hyperthermia, or overheating.
