THEY were sharing the experience of a lifetime, a cultural exchange to one of the most picturesque Rocky Mountain towns. But when one Australian twin was due to return home from the Colorado town of Arapahoe, the sisters did not take a taxi to the airport. Instead, the 29-year-old Victorian twins drove to a shooting range, hired two pistols – and shot each other in the head.
Just what motivated their desperate pact is unknown. And so horrific were their injuries, US police were yet to determine which sister died and which is critically injured.
It sounds like it’s real unclear what actually happened. Surveillance video shows them both simultaneously falling the to ground, but not exactly what caused it. Suicide pact? Murder and self-defense? Some sort of astronomical accident?
