Claim: Sisters found dead on couch were murdered

Jul 9, 2010 9:24:00 AM - thestate.com

The sister of two women found dead together on their living room couch Sunday afternoon said Thursday she believes her sisters were murdered.

Both the Lancaster County coroner and the sheriff’s office have said there was no indication of foul play in the deaths of Peggy Small, 55, and Gail Patterson, 51.

The sisters were found at their home at 1799 Flat Creek Road on Sunday, but Coroner Mike Morris said the women had been dead since June 30 or July 1.

Carol Brasington of Lancaster, the sole surviving sister in the family, said Thursday she is convinced her sisters, whom she described as “good, decent people,” not only lived in better conditions than were portrayed by neighbors in media reports but were crime victims.
