A dispatcher said, “She mentioned that the 8-year-old has been bullied and has made threats of doing this, but didn’t want to go alone. ... At this time, it should just be the mother and the two children on the scene.”
Recently, two siblings were found hanging by a dog leash at their home situated in Albany Township. The Pennsylvania police reported that both kids lived with mother Lisa Rachelle Snyder, 36, and their 17-year-old teenage brother. The devastated mother found her son Conner Snyder, 8, and daughter, Brinley L. Snyder, 4, hanging and unresponsive. According to People, recently released audio exchanged between dispatchers and first responders may possibly shed light on the deaths of these two young siblings who were found hanging from a basement support beam next to chairs that had been tipped over.

“She mentioned that the 8-year-old has been bullied and has made threats of doing this, but didn’t want to go alone. ... At this time, it should just be the mother and the two children on the scene.” According to the dispatchers on the record, a medical helicopter was called to the scene and the children were rushed to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, where they died three days later.
After obtaining six different warrants, the police officers searched the house for evidence to understand the situation. The affidavit supporting the search warrant stated that Lisa's kids were found hanging from opposite ends of a plastic-coated dog lead, which had been wrapped around the main support beam of the basement ceiling. “The eight-year-old victim is known to play video games and view various internet websites utilizing the X-Box gaming console,” one warrant states.

The Lehigh County coroner’s office has not ruled on the cause or manner of death. According to Coroner Eric Minnich, while the autopsy has been completed, further forensic testing, a review of medical records and the state police investigation needs to be completed as well, to conclude on the manner of deaths, which can either be a homicide, accident or suicide. However, school officials declined to comment on the allegations that Conner had been bullied.
Conner was in third grade at Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School, where he was loved by many, the superintendent said in a statement to The Morning Call last week: The Kutztown Area School District community mourns the sudden death of Conner Snyder. Conner was a beloved member of the Greenwich Elementary School family who enjoyed his peers and teachers. He is dearly missed and is fondly remembered for the smile he brought to all who knew him.
Snyder refused to comment on the audio when the outlet tried to reach her. She reportedly said, “at this point, I am not ready to make any public comments.” After her children died on Sept. 26, she changed her Facebook profile with a photo and the saying, “Words scar, rumors destroy, bullies kill.” Now, the police are continuing to investigate this matter, however, no arrests have been made yet.
