Two Alabama brothers have been found dead in the woods, and their family says that the brothers were going to buy pills. They believe that the pills were laced with fentanyl, which ultimately caused the deaths of the two siblings, according to WBRC.
On November 5, Braxton Thomas, 30, and Rico Tannehill, 28, left the Haleyville area. Days later, on November 7, the brothers were found dead inside their car in a wooded area in Winston County.
According to AL.com, Thomas’ wife told them that she believes someone laced Tannehill and her husband’s pills with fentanyl.
However, authorities said they believe Thomas and Tannehill unknowingly had marijuana laced with fentanyl.
Authorities have not yet made an official statement regarding the involvement of pills in this case, but the family holds the belief that pills were involved and that they were laced.
Police said that they will release more information once their investigation is concluded.
