A 30-year-old mother has been arrested over the deaths of her newborn twins. They were found unresponsive in their West Melbourne, Florida, home on Sunday. Rachael Lynn Thomas is facing charges of child neglect and evidence tampering.
The mother called 911 on Sunday at around noon to report that the infants, a boy and a girl, were unresponsive. Thomas was arrested on Monday. One of the babies was dead when police arrived at the house on Sunday and the other was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. The cause of their deaths is not known.
Neighbors told Florida Today that she was quiet and kept to herself.
