They died tragically together outside Haley's home over the weekend, most likely of hypothermia, according to police in Barrington, R.I.

Williams was lying face down on the driveway of Haley's home while her sister was discovered nearby inside the garage, the Barrington Police Department said in a statement. The sprawling home is somewhat isolated, sitting at the end of the quiet road, where it meets the Hundred Acre Cove.

Haley, of Barrington, was subsequently found in the garage.

LaCross said it appears that Williams may have fallen and then as Haley went to call for help, she fell as well.

Fires extinguished, inmates secured at Tecumseh
The people who came here are here because they made bad choices and they're violent. "That's why they're in prison". All of the inmates are in the general population of the prison, but are being held in the highest security.

Temperatures had dropped overnight to as low as 11F (-11C).

The women were pronounced dead at the hospital Saturday.

They have not yet determined an exact cause of death, but it is believed that they were outside all night, where temperatures dipped as low as 13 degrees Fahrenheit. Relatives outside the isolated waterfront home said they were still in too much shock to speak to reporters on Sunday, the Providence Journal reports.

A man answering the phone at the Barrington home said he was not yet ready to talk about what happened.

Police Chief John LaCross called the deaths a "tragic loss".
