    And now for what many of us suspected:
    http://www.9news.com/news/article.as...4449&catid=339

    "AURORA - Authorities in Arapahoe County say two Australian twins shot themselves on Monday in a suicide attempt. One survived, one did not.

    The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office says they spoke Thursday with the 29-year-old twin who survived the shooting. She confirmed to deputies that the two planned to commit suicide together, each firing a bullet into their head.

    Based on evidence and video surveillance, deputies believe the woman's statement.

    The twins, from Victoria, Australia, had been staying in Colorado for about five weeks prior to the shootings.

    No names have been released. "

    I just don't get it. What could possibly be so bad to make them want to kill themselves? My heart goes out to their family.

    evening news just reported that a search of their hotel room revealed a pile of article clippings of the Columbine shooting. No evidence they had any intentions of killing others but had some weird obsession. Will try to find link.

    edit: no link apparent. checked KDVR.com and the story hasn't been updated since mid-afternoon. The Columbine connection was reported on the 10pm KDVR news report.

    Investigators found magazine articles, news clippings and letters related to the 1999 high school shooting, including a photocopy of a magazine cover story about the suspects in the Columbine case, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

    Apparently they used .22 Guess that could be a clue why they both did not succeed. Not a very flattering photo of the girl
