A pair of identical twins, who became famous through their desperate battle with anorexia, have died in a house fire. Clare
and Rachel Wallmeyer, 42, were killed after a fire broke out in their
home in Geelong, near Melbourne, one perishing in the flames, the other
succumbing to her severe burns on the way to hospital.

It
was a tragic end to two turbulent lives, for the sisters had appeared
on Australian TV several times to talk about the anorexia which had
turned both into virtual living skeletons and a problem pair for their
parents, social workers and the police. In a poignant review of their lives they
said in recent years that they had never been in love, never had a job
and they believed that it was only a matter of time before they died –
and they would die together….

In an interview with Australia’s 60 Minutes programme the twins gave a startling insight into their eating habits.
Said Clare: ‘Essentially, we don’t eat anything. We might have a piece of watermelon.’
Rachel added: ‘And Diet Coke we have, and coffee.’
They also revealed they took at least 20 laxatives.
Rachel said that Clare was the only person who remained by her side. ‘And at least we’ll die together.’
Clare said: ‘Being with Rachel…makes it somewhat easier to die
