Very curious case - twins found dead in their recliners after three years
Police in Chattanooga, Tennessee, made a gruesome discovery over the weekend, finding the skeletal remains of identical twin brothers sitting on recliners inside their home.
Investigators are still waiting on toxicology results to determine the cause of death for the 63-year-old men, according to a press release from the Chattanooga Police Department, which was obtained by HLN affiliate WDEF. There were no signs of foul play, and police say there is no evidence to suggest the brothers' deaths were homicides.
Still, for both of them to be found dead in their recliners ? It appears they died at the same time. One scenario I'm thinking is that one or both of them decided to poison themselves with a deadly substance, sort of a suicide or murder/suicide scenario.
This story also says that they both were severely diabetic:

Well, twins do have a "rapport," maybe once one died the other just followed suit.
In the case of couples who have been married for a long time (and who were still very much in love) one death follows shortly after the other - albeit not within seconds usually!
I think natural death and suicide, or suicide pact, is a likely scenario.

The only scenario I could sort of see is them being severely diabetic, they both went into insulin shock after drinking some coke in front of the television. I think the second article mentions there was a 12pack of Coke, mostly unfinished next tot hemWe now return to the end of a really depressing 1970s Sci-Fi movie starring a guy in a turtleneck.

...skeletal remains? How long were they dead before anyone noticed?

Three years... I guess no one liked them.

There was a case in Bamberg County, South Carolina about ten years back.
Cable guy goes out to a remote rural house to do a service turnoff due to non payment.
He gets to the door and nobody answers. He looks through the front window and sees the TV going with somebody in the chair but still no answer to his taps on the window. He goes around to the back of the house and looks in and sees her mummified body.
They later determined that she had been dead about a year. All her bills were on automatic pay, but since she had died, the credit cards eventually hit their limit and declined, triggering the visit of the cable guy. Or she probably would still be decaying in that house to this very day.
She evidently had no surviving family and was pretty much a hermit.

Two scenarios come to mind for me:
1) Carbon monoxide poisoning or something like that. A family in a nearby town to me all recently died from this when a vent in the roof got block up by ice causing a back flow of C0 into the house and they all died unaware anything was wrong. After three years this would dissipate if the source of the C0 had stopped (fire place / furnace, etc) and not be obvious to those entering the house.
2) One died naturally in the chair and the other just left him there. You here about this occasionally with elderly where someone dies and the partner just leaves them where they died for months or years. Then later the other dies in the other chair.

63 isn't elderly, IMO. Most people still wok at 63
Imagine sitting and watching TV next to your twin brother when he drops dead and instead of calling someone, you think to yourself "Meh, I think I'll just sit there next to his body and watch Matlock until I croak"We now return to the end of a really depressing 1970s Sci-Fi movie starring a guy in a turtleneck.
