Surveillance video emerges against aunt in suspected murder investigation

SALINAS Calif. (KGO) -- Investigators now say two children found dead inside a storage unit near Redding, died somewhere else.

Detectives in Redding are trying to determine if the girl and boy are Delylah and Shaun Tara, who lived in Salinas and have been missing.

They were in the care of Tami Huntsman, their aunt. The kids are the same ages as the victims.

Huntsman is considered a suspect in the deaths and faces abuse charges involving a third child.

On Wednesday, new video has surfaced showing Hunstman late last month in a hotel lobby with her boyfriend.

No children were with the couple when they checked in.

Child welfare workers repeatedly visited Huntsman's home in Salinas and say there was no evidence the children were at risk.
