The Twins For Freaky Friday...!.

This is one of those strange mysteries that may never be explained. Whole lot of unanswered questions still linger.

The Twins

In a suburban neighborhood of Chattanooga, Tennessee, there was a well-kept house occupied by two elderly men. Neighbors hadn’t seen the identical twin brothers for some time, although the lawn was well maintained and the mail never piled up. Family members had last attempted to check on them a few years earlier but had been unable to gain entry. The pair normally kept to themselves.

When police finally forced their way in to do a welfare check at the insistence of neighborhood residents, they were met with an eerie sight: the skeletal remains of the two brothers, side by side in their respective easy chairs. They had apparently died as they had lived—in isolation.

And so they remained silently sharing each other’s company for over three years until they were discovered. No signs of foul play were found, which does nothing to make this story any less creepy.

Doesn't sound as though anyone was too concerned about the twins, otherwise they would have tried harder to access the house. My question is who did the yard, bought the groceries, paid the bills...that sort of thing.

Coffee out on the patio again.

Someone must have noticed yard work being done.

That does sound creepy. Not the deaths but that someone was taking care of the yard, yard, bills, etc; but never noticed the twins deaths. Weird!!! Have a nice weekend.

The smell must have been horrendous, if they both died at the same time or close. Today with auto pay the bills just were paid that way, but I have no idea about how the yard got cleaned.
that is a mystery.

Absolutely beautiful morning for the patio, nice cool breeze.

Some people pay a fee for yard work to be done and they could have paid bills a few months in advance, or had auto-pay. But the mail and newspaper are a different story. So, I guess it is quite a mystery, for sure.

I don't think they needed groceries.
