*None of the children involved in this awful tragedy can be named for legal reasons. Fridays court ruling also covers social media comments so please do not post photos or anything that could lead to their identification. Thanks, The Star team.
Reports speculated that they had been poisoned, but detectives have not confirmed any circumstances on either that or the charges levied against the arrested parties.
