Police: Twins found dead in hot pickup may have climbed in
BOSSIER CITY - Police in Louisiana are investigating whether 3-year-old twins who were found dead in a hot pickup truck outside their home would have been able to climb into the vehicle themselves.
Oliver and Aria Orr were found unresponsive inside the truck at their Bossier City home Saturday. They were later pronounced dead a hospital. Autopsies have confirmed the deaths were heat related.
