LIVE UPDATES: Paislee Shultis case
News 12 does not know why the infants died, and death records are not public information.
It is also not known if their deaths had anything to do with the family's custody case.
Haylee Shultis and Kaylee Shultis were born after Paislee's older sister.
Paislee was found hidden in a locked box Monday beneath a stairwell at the parents' home in Saugerties, two years after her maternal grandmother was awarded custody and the parents allegedly took her.
A former family babysitter says there were safety concerns after the father's arrests for construction fraud and methamphetamine, which News 12 confirmed with prosecutors.
Paislee's parents and grandfather are facing criminal charges in her abduction.
Paislee and her sister are now safe with their grandmother who has legal custody of them.
