They were young, likeable, university-educated identical twin sisters from Australia who embarked on a three-month visit to the US, but for a reason that baffles family, friends and authorities, they hatched a secret plan to kill themselves.
On Monday the 29-year-olds from Melbourne caught a cab to Colorado's Family Shooting Centre, hired two .22 calibre handguns - a revolver and a semi-automatic - and began firing away at targets, just as 20 other gun enthusiasts were doing metres away.
At 2.50pm local time, after more than an hour on the range, the sisters turned the guns on themselves and pulled the triggers.
One was dead.
The other was in critical condition.
The surviving twin must really feel like shit now.http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/australian-twin-sisters-made-suicide-pact-before-colorado-range-shooting/story-e6frg6n6-1225956305334
