Cause of Death Released on Saudi Sisters Who Were Found Duct Taped Together in Hudson River

The deaths of two Saudi sisters whose bodies were discovered near New York’s Hudson River last October were a double suicide, medical examiners said. 

Rotana Farea, 23, and Tala Farea, 16, were Saudi citizens who had been living in the United States for two to three years.”Today, my office determined that the death of the Farea sisters was the result of suicide, in which the young women bound themselves together before descending into the Hudson River,” Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said in a statement on Tuesday. The sisters had said they would rather kill themselves than return to Saudi Arabia, sources told detectives.
