On October 24, two female bodies that were bound together by duct tape were found in New York City.
According to ABC News, the two unknown females were found floating in the Hudson River near Manhattan’s Upper West Side. A passerby spotted the deceased women laying on a pile of rocks.
They are both believed to be in their late 20s to early 30s.
Currently, investigators believe that the two women wanted to take their own lives, so they “taped themselves together and jumped into the water.”
However, they are asking the public for their help in identifying the two women. Authorities released these two sketches on October 25:
Despite investigators believing that their deaths were the result of suicide, they are still waiting on a medical examiner to determine their cause of death.
The bodies showed “no obvious signs of trauma.”
Both of the women were described as having a medium build, medium skin tone, and shoulder-length dark curly hair.
Police added that the Jane Does stand at about 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-6 inches tall and they were both wearing a black jacket with fur trim and black leggings.
Authorities asked that anyone with information regarding who the two women are and how they died to call the New York Police Department’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
