RENTON, Wash. (AP) – Authorities in western Washington say a father may have lived for up to five days after his two teenage daughters died in his apartment.
Renton police told The Seattle Times in a story on Friday that 16-year-old Mariel Gill and 17-year-old Adriana Gill died around Dec. 5.
Their bodies were found wrapped in blankets on the first floor.
Police said 33-year-old Manuel Gill died around Dec. 10.

The girls’ mother lives in Everett. She says her daughters became extremely religious and refused to see her.
