Yesterday, in Mississippi, twenty dead sea turtles washed ashore from Biloxi to Bay St. Louis. Wildlife officials can’t say for certain the turtles died as a result of the spill, as no oil was found on the reptiles. However, they could have gotten sick by eating oily fish. Testing on the cause of death will begin tomorrow. We will have more on this story tonight at 5 p.m.
