1. Edith and Johana Casos
Edith, 22, wanted to marry the man she was in love with,Victor, but her family was against it. Not that anyone could blame them having in mind that Victor was serving a 13-year sentence in prison for killing Edith’s twin sister, Johana, two years earlier with whom he also had a relationship. Although Victor insisted that Edith was his true love, the girls’ parents intervened and pleaded for the court to postpone the wedding. Edith underwent Psychiatric evaluation in order to prove her mental stability and whether she is capable of such a decision. Apparently, she was judged sane as the couple married on February 14, 2013 while Victor was still incarcerated for the murder of Edith’s twin.
2. Jim Lewis and Jim Springer
The twin baby boys were separated at birth in 1940 and given up for adoption. They met for the first time in their late 30s. They were both given the name ‘Jim’ by their respective adoptive parents independently and that’s just on top of the sameness list.
Both men had married twice – first to women named Linda and then to women named Betty. Both had dogs as children and both dogs were named Toy. Both had sons that carry the same name – James Allen. They both worked as a sheriff deputy, liked the same beer and cigarette brand and drove the same type of chevrolet. Jim and Jim’s story is often used as an example of twin’s telepathy.
3. Raymon and Richard Miller
Holly Marie Adams gave birth to a baby girl in 2004 and Raymon Miller was listed as the child’s father although there is no 100% he is the actual biological parent. Raymon had a twin brother, Richard, who also had a relationship with Holly at the same time. Without the twins knowing about it, she had actually slept with both of them on the same day when the child was supposedly conceived. Since the brothers’ DNA is 99% identical there is no way to prove which one is the father and which one is the uncle.
4. Twins join in death
72-year old twins were killed on a road in Finland in 2002. Yet, nothing that unusual but the two accidents actually happened separately but on the same road and only couple of hours apart. Both brothers were cycling along the road when they were hit by different trucks only a mile apart on the same icy road. What is even more odd, the second victim was highly unlikely to have known about his brother’s accident as the police had not yet informed the family.
5. Oscar Stohr and Jack Yufe
The two were divided as infants in the 1930s in Germany.Oscar stayed in the country and later became part of the Hitler Youth while Jack was brought up a Jew and left Germany to settle in Israel. Although having completely different upbringing, the twin brothers turned out to be very much alike when they met in their late 50s. Despite the fact that one was a former swastika fan and the other wore a yarmulke they spoke in the same way, had the same taste in foods and shared some peculiar habits such as flushing the toilet both before and after using it as well as wearing a rubber band on yout wrist. Experts state that twins are genetically identical so it’s normal to have the same everyday preferences and their ideological beliefs are irrelevant to genetics.
