‘Unusual circumstances’: Two sisters identified after bodies found in Sydney unit

The bodies of Asra and Amaal Abdullah Alsehli “were believed to have been there for a while” when they were found in separate rooms of their Canterbury home on June 7, police said.

Its owner had become concerned about the food left in the complex’s common areas and contacted the police.

“The circumstances are a bit unusual,” Inspector Claudia Allcroft of Burwood Police said today.

“The girls were aged 23 and 24 and have died together at their home, which is unusual given their age and the nature of the matter.”

Autopsies have been completed on the sisters, but the cause of death is still unknown, prompting police to renew their appeal.

“Our investigation is ongoing and, in consultation with the coroner, we have decided to release their names,” Allcroft said.

The duo came to Australia from Saudi Arabia in 2017, but other than that police said they “don’t know much about the girls”.

“We’ve spoken to people as part of the investigation, but we’d like to get more information from the community,” Allcroft said.

“Any information, no matter how small you think it may be, will help us find out the circumstances that led to the deaths.”

Police are still awaiting the coroner’s report.

The investigation continues.
