HOOKSTOWN, Pa. - October 6, 2009 But Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi said Tuesday
that she couldn't determine the circumstances of Wyatt Smitsky's
death. State police are investigating whether his drowing was
intentional or an accident.
Wyatt's body was found Sept. 5 after searchers drained a septic
tank on property near his home in Greene Township, about 25 miles
northwest of Pittsburgh.
The boy was playing with two young sisters when he went missing,
prompting an 18-hour search.
A district attorney has said it's possible that Wyatt moved the
tank's 14-pound lid by himself.
