A horse was found dead and another had to be put down in Nokesville late last week in Prince William County Police.

While police initially investigated the incident as a suspicious event, police later stated that the horses died because of an accident.

The horses, a 10-year-old mare and a quarter horse gelding palomino, were found early Friday morning at a farm in Nokesville. The mare, a thoroughbred cross, was found dead when authorities arrived. The second horse was severely injured and had to be euthanized.
