The bodies of two young women who had been bound together with duct tape were found washed up on the banks of the Hudson River Wednesday, and police have now identified them as two sisters who were missing from Virginia. The New York Daily News reports Tala Farea, 16, and Rotana Farea, 22, had been reported missing from their Fairfax home on Aug. 24. CNN reports the two seemed to be bound at both the feet and the waist. There was no sign of trauma, and their cause of death has yet to be determined. In its alert on Tala, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children noted the two might be together. Read more on the story here. (More Hudson River stories.)
