Autopsy results on Jake Kimbley are pending


Autopsy results for an East Texas toddler found dead in his family's septic tank have again come back as pending. 

Judge Mitch Shamburger says this means a pathologist needs more time to run tests to determine how Jake Kimbley, age two, died. He says it could take a month or longer. 

Jake went missing last Tuesday afternoon. He was found last Wednesday morning around 1:30 in his family's septic tank, about 15 feet behind the house in the woods. 

In a previous interview, Kimbley's grandmother said it was a "child's game gone bad". She says Jake and his siblings were playing hide-and-go-seek when something went terribly wrong. 

CPS took five children living in the Kimbley home into state custody last week. A routine hearing to determine what kind of rights the Kimbley's have to the remaining children will be Thursday afternoon.
