This Is Very Sad and Very Strange

I’m having a very hard time believing this. From the Washington Post:

Saudi sisters who were found dead and bound with duct tape on the shore of the Hudson River in New York City in October committed suicide, the city’s medical examiner announced on Tuesday.

Rotana and Tala Farea, ages 23 and 16, of Fairfax County, Va., bound themselves before descending into the river and drowning, the medical examiner determined. The sisters’ deaths generated national media attention and speculation they may have been killed because of how they were found.

I hate sounding conspiratorial. But who chooses this as a form of suicide? How did the last secure wrap of duct tape happen?
