The family of two children who mysteriously died in Berks County last month had been receiving services from Children and Youth Services, according to child advocate Cathleen Palm.

Brother and sister Conner Snyder, 8, and Brinley Snyder, 4, died Sept. 26 at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, three days after paramedics were called to their family’s home.

State police in Hamburg said in a news release that the children were being treated for injuries, but did not elaborate or release further information. The results of an autopsy remain incomplete, with more forensic tests needed, according to the Lehigh County Coroner’s Office.

A spokesperson from the state Department of Human Services confirmed to Cathleen Palm, founder of the Center for Children’s Justice, that assessment and ongoing case management services were provided to Connor and Brinley Snyder through Berks County Children and Youth Services. The Center regularly engages in tracking and researching child fatalities in its work to prevent child abuse and protect children.

The Department of Human Services did not explain what services exactly were provided.

Berks County District Attorney John T. Adams told the Reading Eagle that it’s still too early in the investigation to release any information.

"I wish I could say something about the case,” he told the newspaper.

That doesn't seem to have worked out too well for the kiddos. They might need to reevaluate their idea of assessment and case management.

Brinley was pronounced dead at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Allentown days later. Her brother, Connor, 8, died shortly after she did.

While law enforcement authorities remain tight-lipped regarding their investigation of the deaths of two children in Berks County, court documents obtained by 69 News on Monday are shedding some new light on the case.

The documents are applications for four separate search warrants and their respective affidavits of probable cause related to the deaths of 8-year-old Conner Snyder and his 4-year-old sister, Brinley, both of whom were found unresponsive inside their home on the afternoon of September 23.

The court documents reveal that Lisa R. Snyder reported finding her children in the basement, hanging approximately three feet apart from each end of a plastic-coated wire that had been wrapped around the basement's main support beam. Alongside the children, police said they found two wooden dining room chairs that had been knocked over.

Both children were resuscitated by EMTs and flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown, where they were admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit on full life support, po
