The two sisters, both from Minnesota, were vacationing in the Seychelles:

The bodies of Ann Marie Korkki, 38, and Robin Marie Korkki, 42, were discovered on the same bed in their villa at the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa in the Seychelles at about noon last Thursday, the Seychelles Nation reported.

The pair had reportedly been helped to their room by staff the night before after spending the day drinking at the resort, which they originally planned to leave on September 22, but extended their stay for two more days.

When their bodies were found, they showed no signs indicating any violence, but there were apparently "medications" in their room:

Neither woman's body showed signs of violence or trauma, but medications found in the room have been confiscated by police as part of the ongoing investigation, authorities said.

Before we get to the real zinger in the story, I have to relate that my first impression, when reading this story was "What? sisters from Minnesota in the Seychelles for a vacation? Uffda!" Now, for those you who haven't grown up in eastern South Dakota or Minnesota, "Uffda!" is a colloquialism one will hear there, a relic from the Scandinavian, principally Norwegian, settlers in that part of the country. It's an expression of disbelief, shock, in a sort of "who would've thought, what's the world coming to" sort of way. Minnesotans don't scramble to the Seychelles, ordinarily, for vacations. It's an odd place for people in that part of the country to think of for vacations. The Bahamas, yes; the Seychelles, no.  So what on earth would have convinced two sister from Minnesota to go to the Seychelles?

Then I read this:

Ann Korkki worked as a senior administrative assistant for JPMorgan Chase in Denver, while Robin Korkki was based in Chicago where she worked as Head of FX and Metals at Allston Trading, according to their professional websites.

JP Morgan Chase has, of course, figured in many of the mysterious bankster deaths, and again, many if not most of those deaths have involved people in similar positions in middle or upper management, like Ann Korkki. Her sister, Robin, as noted, was the head of the metals division at a company named Allston Trading, which presumably made her privy to a great deal of commodities trading in various bullions, gold, silver, platinum, and so on. In fact, Allston Trading appears to be in the futures business specializing in electronic trading, as noted on its website:
