Police search for DNA, fingerprints after children found hanging in basement

They were found by their mother. She said a plastic-coated wire was used, the same kind that was formerly used to keep their dog outside.

Police also found two knocked over chairs near the kids.

Police are also searching for clues on digital devices.

Autopsy results are pending. No suspects have been named.
