One of the most truly bizarre cases of weird twins has to be that of the Gibbons girls. // June and Jennifer Gibbons were born on April 11, 1963 in Barbados, and moved to a small town in Wales soon after. The girls refused to speak to anyone. They only...
Inspired by their diaries, they started writing novels about men and women exhibiting criminal behavior. June wrote Pepsi-Cola Addict and Jennifer wrote The Pugilist, Discomania, The Taxi-Driver’s Son and several short stories.
When June was questioned at the inquest she revealed that Jennifer was acting strangely for a few days before their transfer. June also said that Jennifer’s speech was slurred and they both assumed she was dying.
Strangely, after her sister’s death, June began interacting normally with people. She no longer needs psychiatric monitoring and has been fully accepted back into her community. She now lives a quiet life in West Wales near her parents.
During their stay in the hospital they made a pact that one of them would die. When the doctors decided to transfer the twins to Caswell Clinic, Jennifer died in transit. Her death remains an unsolved mystery to this day.
