A pathologist who performed autopsies on the boys said they died of asphyxiation and each was covered in puncture wounds from snake bites.
A number of witnesses testified during Savoie's trial that it was common to see the cover of the vent on the enclosure's floor, and the court heard the snake nearly escaped a matter of weeks before the boys' death, but got stuck in the ventilation pipe.
The boys had spent the day of the sleepover petting animals and playing at a farm owned by Savoie's father.Bob Johnson, the now-retired former curator of reptiles and amphibians at the Toronto Zoo, testified at Savoie's trial that snakes become more aggressive when they detect possible sources of food — and an attack would have been unlikely had there been no animal smells on the boys."Those boys could have been a stimulant to that snake," he said.
