Police are investigating the death of two sisters from Saudi Arabia whose bodies were found duct taped together on the Hudson River Bank.
Tala Ferea,16 and Rotana Ferea,22 were two sisters from Saudi Arabia that moved to Fairfax, Va back in 2015 with their family.
According to sources the girls bodies were discovered after they applied for political asylum. The mother told detectives that she had received a phone call from on an official at the Saudi Arabian Embassy urging them to leave the US.
The sisters were reported missing back in August from Fairfax and found last Wednesday along the New York Hudson River bank about 225 miles from their home. When authorities found the sisters they were duct taped together facing one another fully clothed with no signs of visible trauma.
The Saudi Consulate general issued a statement saying “they have appointed an attorney to follow the case closely”.
Detectives are still investigating and waiting on medical examiners to determine the sisters cause of death before ruling it a homicide.
