Possible suicides probed in death of sisters found with mom

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office is investigating the deaths of twin sisters as possible suicides after their bodies were found in a Hawaiian Gardens home with that of their 87-year-old mother, who appears to have died of natural causes.

Coroner’s assistant chief Ed Winter said Tuesday autopsies on the elderly woman and her 58-year-old daughters are pending.

He says the twins’ deaths were believed to be possible suicides, and the mother’s death the result of natural causes.

The three were found Monday in a house where a car had been left running in the garage.

A relative checking on the family’s welfare discovered the older woman’s body in a bedroom.

Her daughters’ bodies were found on the floor of the home’s detached garage, where the car’s motor was running.
