ENGLEWOOD A photocopy of a magazine cover about the Columbine school shooting was found among the belongings of Australian twin sisters who shot themselves in a suicide pact at a Colorado shooting range, authorities said Friday.
However, it remained unclear why Kristin and Candice Hermeler had the cover of Time and why the sisters made the plan to kill themselves, authorities said. One of the women survived.
Columbine High School is about 20 miles from the shooting range. The May 3, 1999, magazine cover featured photographs of gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold and their 13 victims. Harris and Klebold committed suicide simultaneously just as police said the twins attempted to do.
The cover was found among stuffed animals, cell phones and jewelry the twins left behind at the nearby hotel where they had been staying.
