Forensic teams are conducting autopsies to determine how 925 pigs died in a closed barn on a farm 100 miles southwest of Harrisburg.

The remains of the pigs were found scattered throughout a warehouse-style barn in Fulton County by a humane officer last week. The owner left the farm in August and witnesses say the doors of the barn were blocked by farm equipment.
