A ninety-seven-year-old woman, Sheryl Hope Waldman, slipped and fell while walking to her car. Her twin sister, Lynda Waldman, ran into the house to call for help, and tripped on a rug. Both were found dead the next morning and police believe they may have frozen to death. The tragic deaths took place over the weekend in Barrington, Rhode Island.
“Ms. Williams may have fallen in the driveway,” Police Chief John LaCross said in a statement. “Ms. Haley may have tripped on a rug on the floor of the garage as she attempted to enter her house to call for assistance.” The precise cause of death has not been issued, but extremely cold temperatures might have been a factor in the deaths, La Coss said. How tragic to have twins die on the same day.
