The  twin sisters who were found dead last month in their California home do have family – and those cousins have been located.

The two women were once starlets – a term from their era – and then left the spotlight for a life of isolation and seclusion. No one knows why.

We may learn more about their deaths from toxicology reports in weeks to come.

The greater question: What was the motivation to totally cut themselves off from everyone, family and stranger alike?
