Moulton awaits pesticide test findings

MOULTON — Authorities are waiting to receive test results from a state department that will reveal what kind of pesticide sickened a family and killed a dog Sept. 27, sheriff's Lt. Tim McWhorter said.

Samples of the pesticide were sent to the state Department of Agriculture and Industries, McWhorter said.

"They've indicated that they could get back to me fairly soon," he said.

Authorities believe the pesticide could be Temik, commonly used on cotton. Someone left bags of the substance mixed with fish along Lawrence County 84 in an apparent attempt to kill animals.

McWhorter said no arrests had had been made in the case.
