The Seychelles' authorities are investigating the deaths of two American women who were found “unresponsive” in their hotel room yesterday, the police said.
The two sisters, aged 38 and 42, were on holiday in Seychelles and were staying in a villa at the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa.
“They were certified dead by the doctor at the Anse Boileau health centre where they had been transported for examination,” police spokesman Jean Toussaint said in a statement.
“Preliminary examination done by the police on the bodies of the two Americans is not showing any signs of violence,” adds the statement.
The incident was reported to the police at around midday by the management of the tourism establishment.
The two sisters arrived in Seychelles on September 15 and were due to leave the country on Saturday September 24.
The police statement said an investigation is ongoing and the police are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death of the two women.
