Covering Lee County: Test results released in the deaths of 3 girls

Auburn, Ala. (WSFA) -- Concerned Lee County parents and teachers may finally get some answers.  The Centers for Disease Control are releasing some tests results explaining a rare condition known as Myocarditis.  The disease causes an inflammation of the heart and according to officials led to the deaths of three Lee County children.

All three girls lived in Auburn and attended city schools. Two were 7 years old and the other 10 years old.

Based on CDC statistics, the chances of a child age 5 to 14 dying from Myocarditis are one in 1.35 million.

The Lee County Coroner's Office is reviewing the results to see if the causes of each condition are linked.

The coroner and doctors with the Department of Forensics plan to sit down with the families next week to go over the test results.

Those results won't be made available to the public until after that meeting.
