97-year-old twins perish in cold after fall outside

Temperatures dipped to 12 F overnight Friday in the area and, while autopsy results were still pending Monday afternoon, police cited extreme cold temperatures as a possible factor in the deaths. The three sisters then went to Haley's home. Sometime after their sister left, the twins fell, which led to their deaths.

Family members of a pair of 97-year-old twin sisters who died after falling near each other in the freezing weather this weekend say they find comfort in knowing the two best friends spent their final moments together. The Providence Journal reported that Haley lived at 21 Opechee Drive, Barrington, and Williams lived in East Providence. Williams was found face down next to her auto in the driveway and Haley was found in the garage.

The exact cause of the deaths of the 97-year-old twin sisters has not yet been officially determined. Nothing appears to have been taken from the women, who have not yet been identified. Ms. Haley may have tripped on a rug on the floor of the garage as she attempted to enter her house to call for assistance, " LaCross said in a statement.

The ratio of Australia's export prices to that of import prices, also called as the terms of trade, upped by 9.1 percent. Coal and iron ore prices and liquefied natural gas exports would help turn things around in coming months, he said.


It wasn't until the next morning that a neighbour discovered Williams face down in the driveway. They were rushed to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, but died a short time later. He said he asked doctors to keep them together even after they were declared dead.

Barrington Police Chief John M. LaCross offered his condolences to the victims' families Sunday.
