48. Wales – Speak No Evil

Twin sisters June and Jennifer Gibbons refused to speak to anyone but each other for as long as they could remember. After committing arson in their teens, they were sent to Broadmoor Hospital for the criminally insane, Britain’s most notorious maximum-security hospital. The girls made a pact: if one of them died, the other one would start speaking and live a normal life. 11 years later, on the day of their release, Jennifer died mysteriously. June reacted by saying:“I’m free at last, and at last Jennifer has given up her life for me.”
