Not suicide according to the father.In 2018 two Saudi sisters drowned in the Hudson River New York, there were rumours then that they were murdered due to the way they were retrieved wrapped up in tape but it was found to be deaths of a suicide pact.
The father of two young Saudi women whose bodies were found bound together in New York last October has dismissed a police assessment that they committed suicide and said marks he saw on their faces indicate they were beaten before their deaths.
Father of Saudi sisters found dead in New York rejects suicide finding''The father of two young Saudi women whose bodies were found bound together in New York last October has dismissed a police assessment that they committed suicide and said marks he saw on their faces indicate they were beaten before their deaths.'
'Their mother told detectives the day before the bodies were discovered that the Saudi Embassy in Washington had ordered the family to leave the United States because the daughters had applied for political asylum, the Associated Press reported in October, citing police. An embassy spokeswoman denied that at the time.'
'Saudi news site Sabq published an interview on Monday with the women’s father, who was not named, denying police claims that at some earlier point they had been subjected to physical abuse, and accusing a Virginia investigator of abducting the women and blocking him from retrieving them.
“He told us that he had withdrawn the report and placed the girls in a safe place,” Sabq quoted the father as saying.
“We tried to communicate later with this investigator but he refused to respond. He asked us to go to the court on the grounds that the case had been transferred there, but when we went, we did not find any trace of the case,” the father added.
He said when he viewed his daughters’ bodies at the morgue before taking them back to Saudi Arabia, “we found bruises filling both their faces ... especially the younger one, which confirms they were heavily beaten before they died.”'
