Twin Sisters Known for OCD Battle Found Dead From Apparent Suicide Pact

Twins Sara Eldritch and Amanda Eldritch didn't just make headlines for their battle with an extreme manifestation of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

The two, who battled OCD from childhood well into adulthood, underwent a groundbreaking procedure that, at least for a time, eased their symptoms and allowed them to lead normal lives.

Tragically, the women have both been found dead. Police suspect that they may have had a suicide pact.

Eldritch twins the doctors

The Canon City Daily Record reports that the Eldritch twins were found dead with gunshot wounds.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office says that Sara and Amanda were found in a car which was parked at a rest area  Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, which is in Canon City.

Sgt. Megan Richards reported that police believe that the sisters may have had a suicide pact.

That is, at the moment, speculation.

What they say with reasonable confidence is that there is no known threat to the community at large.

In the video below, you can see both Sara and Amanda speak about their shared battle with OCD.

Their disorder manifested at a very young age, where even a simple process like putting on their shoes could take a great deal of time because they found, for example, wrinkles in their socks to be unbearable.

Many of us dislike things like that, but for someone with OCD, there is an irresistible compulsion to address what most of us would view as a regrettable source of irritation.

The twins described their OCD as like someone holding a gun to their head and forcing them to go through a task or ritual.

By their twenties, their OCD symptoms had worsened, and they would find themselves taking 10-hour showers, scrubbing their skin raw.

You can also see how their lives improved after they underwent a groundbreaking procedure.

Electrodes were placed within their brains, connected to batteries stored within their chests. Which, yes, sounds like a child's idea of what surgery might be, but we're not making it up.

The procedure, normally used for Parkinson's, allowed them to manage their anxieties.

They came to feel as if their younger, OCD-ridden selves were almost different people. In some ways, they were.

The twins were able to go on and get jobs and function in everyday life. For a time, at least.

It's heartbreaking to think that they died just a few years later.

Though a number of treatments for OCD exist and work to varying degrees, there is no "magic pill" for these compulsions.

In fact, OCD is not really well understood.

There is evidence for a genetic component to OCD. Both anecdotally and statistically, the odds of having OCD are higher if a relative has it.

In other cases, OCD can arise from traumatic situations such as abuse.

There are even controversial theories that there is an autoimmune element at play in OCD.

Eldritch mom

Their mother must be feeling so devastated.

Some wonder if the procedure that had given the twins so much freedom back in 2015 had tragically stopped working.

If so, that would compound the sadness. Especially if they chose to die rather than return to how their lives once were.

But, at the moment, so much of this is just speculation.

Hopefully, investigators will uncover a concrete, verifiable explanation for how this tragedy came to pass.

In the mean time, let's look at the twins when they were happily explaining how their lives had improved.

Khloe Kardashian and Sydney Simpson: Do They Look Like Sisters?

O.J. Simpson is back in the news — an old, buried interview even shows him revealing that he had an accomplice and giving what many believe to be a confession to killing Nicole and Ron.

In light of that, people who have long speculated that Khloe might be The Juice's daughter have been giving that theory a second look.

And they've noticed that Sydney Simpson, his daughter, looks an awful lot like Khloe. Check out the video below and decide for yourself.

O.J. Simpson went to prison. Not for the vicious murders that he allegedly committed and later sought to use to profit. Not for the years of alleged domestic violence that he inflicted upon Nicole Brown during their marriage.

No, O.J. went to prison for an armed robbery in a case that is truly bizarre. In the mean time, he missed out on the lives of his children.

(Which is honestly for the best, for their sakes)

His son Justin is 29 and currently a real estate agent.

His daughter Sydney is 32, attended Boston University, and graduated with a sociology degree.

And Khloe … wait, no, Khloe isn't O.J.'s daughter.

(This throwback photo shows a young Khloe with the late Robert Kardashian)

Khloe has always been very adamant that Robert Kardashian is her father.

She's even gone so far as to commune with his spirit via Hollywood Medium star Tyler Henry.

Some might say that this is evidence that she's definitely his biological daughter, though others have shot down that claim, because there' more to family than blood. 

(Plus, people are very divided over whether or not mediums are a real thing)

Kris Jenner has encouraged Khloe in the past to get a DNA test to shut down the rumors, but Khloe always felt that it would be insulting to everyone involved to even dignify the rumors by disproving them.

But … some wonder if Khloe might have avoided the test because of nagging doubts.

With all of the where-are-they-now questions that people have been asking since O.J.'s release from prison, a number of people have looked at photos of Sydney — when she was young and when she was an adult.

And they've pointed out what they believe to be strong physical resemblances to Khloe Kardashian.

Not just in the childhood photos, but as adults.

Some of those who have long believed that O.J. secretly fathered Khloe behind his friend Robert's back point to these similarities and say that the two women are actually sisters.

Well, half-sisters.

So … are they?

Even O.J. Simpson himself has denied it.

O.J. … who would seemingly have nothing to lose and everything to gain (seriously, it's not like anyone could think worse of him at this point, right?) … denied that he's the grandfather of Khloe's baby.

Khloe, who is expecting a baby girl and just had an epic baby shower, isn't exactly on speaking terms with O.J. … but he sent her some indirect congratulations anyway. 

Still, some of these theorists point out that O.J. might not know.

They point to the fact that, though known by most as a disgraced monster who got an acquittal due to social tensions and a botched prosecution, O.J. was once a beloved athlete to people who like sports.

He also appeared on commercials and even in a film.

They feel that it's very conceivable that a man who was once one of the biggest stars might have bedded — and impregnated — his best friend's wife.

And they see Sydney and Khloe's alleged similarities as "proof" that this happened.

Take a look at these side-by-side images in the video below and decide for yourself if you think that Sydney and Khloe look like sisters.

Maybe they're right … or maybe people who don't understand genetics are eager to "explain" why Khloe is taller than most of her siblings.

Clearly, Sydney hasn't had as much "help" with her appearance or figure as Khloe has, but there are plenty of photos of the "old" Khloe for comparison.

So … are they sisters?
