I can't find one on the search page, though that doesn't mean they've never been mentioned. Who are they? More info might help.

They were twin sisters who hardly spoke to anyone and I think spent time in Broadmoor for arson.

Is there a thread dedicated to twins? Looking for information on the Gibbons, I found out about Stewart and Cyril Marcus, both gynaecologists from New York who appear to have been the inspiration for David Cronenburg's Dead Ringers.


Edit.
Found one.

Yes, but it's a general thread, rather than dealing specifically with cases such as the Gibbons and the Chaplins. In the absence of a dedicated thread, I suppose this one will do for now Wink

Thanks everyone! Yes The Gibbons case is a real odd one, they also "decided" which one would die first and while being moved from Broadmore, June (IIRC) died of a heart condition. Confused
