Lisa Rachelle Snyder, 36, found her son Conner Snyder, 8, and daughter, Brinley L. Snyder, 4, hanging and unresponsive at their home in Albany Township, Pennsylvania.
Two children 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 was the one who found her son Conner Snyder, 8, and daughter, Brinley L. Snyder, 4, hanging and unresponsive. Upon witnessing this horrible sight, Lisa alerted the paramedics in the area, who arrived immediately and were able to revive the children on the way to the hospital.
However, it was too late as both siblings were pronounced dead three days after being placed on life support at Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown.

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.

@crimeonlinenews What does the dog have to do with it?? The parent or parents are responsible.......not the f dog! Those poor kids. I hope whoever did this is HANGED!
Furthermore, the affidavit stated how each of the wire lead was coiled around the victims' necks. Two chairs were found tipped over on the floor on either side of the bodies which were actually taken from the house's dining room.
Both were hanging 3 feet apart from each other when they were first discovered. As mentioned earlier, the paramedics from the Kempton Fire Company were able to revive the kids on the way to the hospital. Soon after being flown to the hospital, they were admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit and were placed on life support.
On September 26, three days following this incident, Lisa's children were removed from life support and were pronounced dead 14 minutes apart. Speaking to the troopers, the heartbroken mother and her 17-year-old son who also lived in the same house revealed that Conner Snyder loved video games and would often spend his time surfing the internet using an Xbox gaming console. Authorities have now ceased the console, two tablets, cellphones, and a laptop.
Providing a little more detail, Lisa informed the authorities that she owned a black medium-sized Husky pitbull weighing about 50 pounds that she kept outside the residence attached to a wire cable lead with a plastic coating. And ever since the death of her two children, Lisa said she had given the dog away.
The results of the autopsy conducted last week was inconclusive, reported Daily Mail. The coroner said that forensic testing was required for him to determine the cause and manner of death. Police are continuing to investigate this matter, however, no arrests have been made yet.
