Mystery surrounds death of Tenn. twins in home

By

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The strange discovery of the skeletal remains of twin brothers Andrew and Anthony Johnson has mystified neighbors and others in Chattanooga and beyond. Each man was found seated in an easy chair inside the modest home they shared for decades, and where they apparently died together about three years ago.

Police found their decomposing bodies sitting in recliners in the living room March 29 after a relative asked officers to check on the 63-year-old brothers. Their conditions suggested that both men had been dead since 2011. There were no obvious signs of foul play.

Now, Chattanooga residents are formulating their own theories. Was there a gas leak that killed them? Was it a double suicide? Were they poisoned? Or did they just sit down one day and die together?
