Mysterious deaths of twin Hollywood starlets

NEED TO KNOW
  • Identical twins Patricia and Joan Miller lives end mysteriously
  • Detective: 'My perception is one died and the other couldn't handle it'
  • Twins Lawrence and Gregory Zarian says their bond is very strong

Identical twins, Patricia and Joan Miller, lives had ended in their California home mysteriously last week.

When officers were routinely checking on the women last month, they found one body decomposing in a bedroom; the other in a hallway, suggesting they had been dead for at least several weeks when they were found.

"My perception is one died and the other couldn't handle it," El Dorado County Detective Matt Harwood told the Associated Press.

The 73-year-old women had spent the last 40 years together alone with little contact with anyone outside their South Tahoe Lake home.

They appeared on the 1950s television show "The Hoffman Hayride" and posed for a picture with Bing Crosby whe they were children.

Medical investigators are trying to determine how or when the women died.

In the video clip above, Lawrence Zarian and his twin brother Gregory talked to HLN’s Dr. Drew about the strong bond that twins, in general, have with one another.
