Case 17

The Eriksson Twins

*** Content Warning: mental illness ***

On May 17 2008, Swedish twin sisters Ursula and Sabina Eriksson boarded a bus from Liverpool to London. After a routine road stop, the bus driver noticed the twins were acting suspiciously and were clinging tightly to their bags. Concerned, the driver refused to let Ursula and Sabina back on board. 

Soon after, two patrol officers were called to an incident on the M6 motorway near the English city of Stoke-on-Trent. Expecting the worst, the officers were surprised to find The Erikkson twins standing calmly and unscathed on the shoulder of the motorway. But within a few minutes, the seemingly calm situation took a frightening turn.
