There is a heartbreaking story out of Connecticut, where a female swan was found dead with her mate lying right next to her. Neighbors saw teenagers in the area near the nest in Ledyard, days before the swan was killed.

They say the teens were throwing rocks.

The swan's eggs were found cold to the touch, no longer protected by the warmth of their mother.

The Department of Environmental Protection is trying to confirm how the swan was killed.

A police lieutenant says the investigation will move forward from there.
