APNewsBreak: Police say reclusive, 73-year-old twin sisters died long before they were found
Police say autopsy reports indicate a pair of 73-year-old identical twin sisters who were found dead in their California home died long before they were found.
Singers Patricia and Joan Miller lived for nearly 40 years in South Lake Tahoe but often shunned their neighbors.
Police found one sister dead in a bedroom, and the other in a hallway during a routine welfare check on Feb. 26.
Police say medical investigators have not been able to determine when the women died, but their decomposed bodies suggest they had been dead for at least several weeks when they were found.
Officials have been unable to locate any close friends or relatives to notify of the sisters' deaths.
