CANON CITY, Colo. -- Investigators are looking into the deaths of twin sisters whose bodies were found in a vehicle at a rest area near the Royal Gorge Bridge Park on Friday.

Fremont County sheriff's deputies along with the Canon City Police Department responded to the scene on a report of a death investigation.

Upon arrival, two bodies, later identified as Sara and Amanda Eldritch, 33, were found inside a vehicle, both with gunshot wounds. The women reportedly were from Broomfield.

The two said they were diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder and appeared on shows such as "The Doctors" after going through a progressive treatment.

The women became the first people in Colorado to undergo what's called deep brain stimulation in 2015 for OCD symptoms.  It is traditionally used for patients with Parkinson's disease.

After further investigation and results from the autopsy, officials with the Fremont County Sheriff's Office said it appears to be an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public.

Officials said they have no further details and the investigation is ongoing.
