    AU - Anorexic twins perish in Geelong housefire, dying together - as they predicted

    Famous anorexic identical twins die in house fire as troubled, tortured lives end just as they predicted (Daily Mail)
    A pair of identical twins, Clare and Rachel Wallmeyer, 42, who became famous through their desperate battle with anorexia, have died in a house fire.
    ---
    In a poignant review of their lives they said in recent years that they had never been in love, never had a job and they believed that it was only a matter of time before they died.
    ---
    Their deaths in the fire are believed to have been accidental.
    ---
    Yet there had been reports over the years of the women each trying to kill one another.
    ---
    The twins developed severe eating disorders in their early teens losing more weight when they became addicted to long-distance running. They were so obsessed with marathons that they each suffered stress fractures in their feet
    ---
    Rachel told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper on one occasion that no-one understood anorexia until they have lived it. ‘It’s like the Grim Reaper – a black hole in your soul,’ she said.
    ---
    Rachel said that Clare was the only person who remained by her side. ‘And at least we’ll die together.’

    This is just beyond sad. May they rest in eternal peace.
