Robin Korkki, 42, and Annie Korkki, 38, were found unresponsive in their hotel beds.
Two Minnesota sisters were found dead in their resort villa while on vacation in Seychelles, an archipelago more than 900 miles off Africa’s east coast.
Robin Korkki, 42, and Annie Korkki, 38, were found unresponsive in their hotel beds, according to authorities.
Their brother, Chris Korkki, told CBS Minnesota, a local news station, that his sisters were “experienced foreign travelers” which is why their sudden deaths were “so shocking.”
The Eden Prairie natives were found by a manager at the Maia Luxury Resort they were staying at. The sisters showed no signs of trauma, according to police.
Hotel staff saw the women consuming alcohol throughout the day on Sept. 22 and were helped to their room around 8:15 p.m., according to the local newspaper Seychelles Nation.
Medication was found in their hotel room, although police did not disclose the names.
A donation page was created to help the Korkki family with the expenses of returning the sisters to the United States.
“At this point, the only details we know are the articles flying around online,” Chris Korkki told the Star Tribune. “Two things keep going through my mind: This isn’t happening, and we just want answers.”
