Hypothermia killed elderly twin sisters after separate falls at their home

Hypothermia killed elderly twin sisters after separate falls at their home”

"On behalf of the men and women of the Barrington Police Department, our deepest sympathies and condolences are extended to the Haley and Williams' families during their tragic loss", LaCross' statement read.

When police entered the garage, they found the body of Williams' twin sister, Jean Haley, who apparently tripped while trying to call for help.

Police say foul play is not suspected in the women's deaths.

After going up a few stairs to access the door leading to the house, Jean Haley tripped over a loose carpet, lost her balance, fell the stairs, and landed on the garage's floor. Both women were rushed to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Elderly Rhode Island twins reportedly died Friday night after falling within steps in the bitter cold outside a house.

The younger sister was not with her older siblings at the time. The sisters are believed to have been outside all night, though, in sub-freezing temperatures, which has led the police to preliminarily suggest the sisters died because of the frigid temperatures they were exposed to for several hours, likely resulting in hypothermia. As the night wore on, temperatures dipped to 16 degrees. Haley lived on the waterfront in Barrington for more than 60 years - just a 20-minute drive away from her twin.

Police believe Williams and Haley returned home around 8.30pm on Friday evening.

Nothing was missing from either of the sisters, or from the premises, leading investigators to think that no foul play was involved in their deaths.
