A necropsy concluded that humans are likely behind the demise of these symbols of freedom, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman said on Thursday. The test ruled out disease, such as bird flu, officials said. Despite the lack of foul play, they still could have been poisoned.

Despite this initial ruling, the mystery continues. The human cause has yet to be announced. Additionally, officials are still looking for the people who is responsible. The federal agency is offering up to $25,000 in reward money.
