VIDEO: Tearful send-off for sisters in 'mystery' deaths

Mystery still surrounds the death of five-year-old Rosrick King and her four-year-old sister, Rosricka King, a month after they were found motionless in their Washington Court complex home in St Andrew.

A funeral service was held for the sisters at the New Life Community Church International Worship Centre in Spanish Town, St Catherine on Saturday.

Tears were aplenty among the scores of mourners,  many of whom were still finding it difficult to come to terms with the girls' untimely deaths. 

Rosden Hewit, the mother of the girls, in particular, had to be consoled throughout the service. 

Preliminary investigations pointed to strangulation as being behind the girls' deaths. However, the post mortem results were inconclusive.
