    This article was posted 30 minutes ago by CBS New York--not sure if this is the new info that is from the presser CNN carried but most of us were unable to access. NYPD confirms they have "documents" indicating the girls were abused.

    BREAKING: New York City police announce they have no reason to indicate Saudi sisters who were found dead on banks of Hudson River last week died as a result of foul play. Tala and Rotana Farea disappeared two months earlier from Va.

    The Farea sisters had been staying at a "shelter-like facility" in Virginia after they reported abuse, NYPD says. Sources said the girls "would rather inflict harm on themselves, inflict suicide, than return to Saudi Arabia"

    "At this time, we have no credible info that any crime took place in NYC. It’s entirely credible that they entered the water alive.” @NYPDDetectives update on Tala & Rotana Farea

    Really sounds like it could go either way--suicide or honor killing. Regardless, if the girls were hounded to suicide and their death itself is not considered a crime, I hope the NYPD and NoVA authorities look into the abuse they were hiding from at that VA shelter. Poor sweet girls.

    Them entering the water alive hardly disqualifies foul play when duct tape is involved.

    Not buying suicide here at all. Regardless, it sounds like the death was related to their culture/religion and that is incredibly sad.

    That's certainly an interesting twist. I guess police must have ruled out that the brother or his associates were in contact with the sisters in the week prior to the discovery of their bodies.

    That's a funny statement. Of course it's credible that they entered the water alive. That is what happens with people who are murdered by drowning, and certainly no reason to rule out murder.

    Phug that. If your longtime abuser forces you to commit suicide to avoid future abuse. Then they should be held accountable as well. Jmo.

    This is taking an interesting turn. Are the police so illogical that they believe that when a duct taped person enters the water alive, it must be suicide? What is going on behind the scenes to stop the investigation?

    It seems they ran out of credit on credit cards while they were in NY. They were dead soon after.
