Autopsy results are expected Monday for two teenagers killed in a weekend explosion at an oil-holding tank in south Forrest County.
Authorities say 16-year-old Devon Byrd and 18-year-old Wade White died after the explosion around 4 a.m. Saturday near White's home in Carnes.
Byrd was a sophomore at Forrest County Agricultural High School, and White had just graduated.
Forrest Count Sheriff Billy McGee said the bodies were found between 50 and 75 feet from the oil tank.
Authorities and the teen's relatives aren't sure why they were out that time of morning or what may have caused the explosion.
Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict told The Hattiesburg American newspaper the cause of death is pending autopsy results Monday.
