- New York Police are investigating the deaths of two sisters from Saudi Arabia that were found dead, duct-taped together in the Hudson River last week.
- Police say Tala Farea, 16, and Rotana Farea, 22, were found facing each other and fully clothed without any obvious signs of trauma.
- The Farea sisters had recently applied for US asylum.
- According to The Associated Press, the day before their bodies were discovered, their mother received a call from an official at the Saudi embassy ordering the family to leave because the girls had applied for political asylum.
While we continue the expansive investigation into the deaths of sisters Tala & Rotana Farea—whose bodies were found on Oct 24 at the edge of the Hudson River in Manhattan—we urge anyone w/ info to call CrimeStoppers 800-577-TIPS @NYPDTIPS
