A source of the police speaks on condition of anonymity with the New York Times this week said it looks like a & # 39; loves & # 39; triangle & # 39; the motive was behind the deadly collision between the identical twins.

The aunt of the twins, Blanca Class, told the Times that their mother had told her that she disagreed about Anna's boyfriend. The aunt did not know if Amanda also went out with the same man.
Anna, who had three daughters, described herself as a single on her Facebook page, while Amanda, who is a mother of hers, did not mention her relationship status.
& # 39; They went to a party, they came home, they drank, they argued about a friend, & # 39; said Class. & # 39; She (Amanda) has just been on a crazy journey, stabbed and killed her. & # 39;
The last photo of the sisters, who arrived less than two hours before Anna, made the twins sit on a sidewalk with their cousin and a man in glasses.
