Police probe deaths of 1-month-old Idaho twins

Police in southeastern Idaho say detectives are investigating the "suspicious" deaths of 1-month-old identical twin boys whose mother called 911 to report that they weren't breathing.

Authorities say Kiarra Kimbel, of Pocatello, made the report at 8:35 a.m. Monday.

Lt. Paul Manning says the babies, Gabriel R. Medrano and Tryce E. Medrano, were rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival. Police say autopsies were planned for Monday evening to determine the cause of the deaths.

The Idaho State Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/sC2LgC) that neighbors said Kimbel has two other children who live with her at her Pocatello apartment. The newspaper reports neighbors said the twins were seen Sunday and appeared to be in good health.

Police declined to release additional details Monday afternoon.
