** This was what [[https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/silent-twins-death-remains-a-mystery-jury-was-denied-expert-evidence-before-returning-verdict-that-2322891.html the jury concluded at the inquest]]; but the twins' family and friends had requested expert witnesses, yet none had been called, nor had medical staff from Broadmoor who had cared for the girls. Jennifer's death was due to massive acute [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98WtP1qC61s viral myocarditis]], which can have many causes. Both girls had been under extreme stress, fearing they would not actually be released from Broadmoor as promised. This combined with the psychiatric drugs Jennifer had been taking could have weakened her heart. However, we will never know for sure. Family and friends don't suspect foul play, but rather neglect on the part of medical staff, and the twins' older sister [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3526486/Sister-Silent-Twins-close-one-DIE-live.html Greta Gibbons gave interviews in 2017]] saying the twins should never have been sentenced to Broadmoor in the first place.

* In ''FatalFrame II'' there's a ritual that, by default, produces these, since one twin must kill the other to appease the Hellish Abyss. Let's count the ways they produced Angsty Surviving Twins:
** Itsuki: to the point where he [[spoiler:helps Yae and Sae escape so as to not suffer his and his brother's fate, and then commits suicide once he thinks they've escaped.]]
** [[spoiler: Yae: so traumatized by losing her sister (and the entire village) to the Repentance that she lost all her memories of them.]] A rare example that doesn't directly involve the ritual.
** [[spoiler: Mio: in the canon ending, so traumatized by the death of Mayu]] it leads directly into the 3rd game's plot, which deals with survivor guilt.
** Akane: so traumatized by her twin sister's death that her father made a doll that looked like Azami [[spoiler: which ended up possessed by a malevolent spirit and led to her own possession and death.]]
** The only surviving twin that ''isn't'' angsty is Ryokan, and that's likely because it was years since his twin's death, so he's likely come to terms with it by now.
** From IV: Kageri Sendou. After her twin sister's death, she "coped" with it by creating a life-sized doll in the image of said sister (which she named "Watashi"), treating it as if it were her sister for the rest of her life.
