The bodies of Asra and Amal Al-Sahli returned quietly to Saudi Arabia after a mysterious death in Sydney

The authorities confirmed that the bodies of two Saudi sisters who were found mysteriously decomposing in their apartment were quietly transferred to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the deaths of the family of Abdullah Al-Sahli, 24, and Amal Abdullah Al-Sahli, 23, in their unit in Canterbury, southwest of Sydney, has taken another turn.

Officials requested a second toxicology report in an effort to determine the exact cause of the duo’s sudden death.

A spokeswoman for the NSW Police Force told Daily Mail Australia that a sample had been sent to a specialist toxicology facility “for further analysis and in-depth testing”.

Asra Abdullah Al-Sahli, 24, and her younger sister Amal Abdullah Al-Sahli, 23, were found dead in their unit in Canterbury on 7 June.

The previous toxicology report is believed to be inconclusive.

The two sisters’ bodies were found in separate bedrooms in their unit on June 7. They are believed to have died in the previous month to six weeks.

Investigators examine several lines of investigation, including a possible suicide pact or an outrageous act by an unknown attacker.

The two sisters sought asylum in Australia, worked as traffic controllers and studied at TAFE.

They had expressed concerns about their safety to the building manager before they died – reporting seeing a man ‘acting strangely’ outside.

The latest developments were first reported by SBS News. The police investigation into their deaths continues.

“Investigations are ongoing and police continue to appeal to the public for any information,” a spokeswoman said.

EXCLUSIVE: Graphic warning – Daily Mail Australia moves into apartment where two decomposing bodies of Saudi sisters were left for a month – after receiving a grim warning at the front door

By Charlotte Karp for the Daily Mail Australia

The “luxury” apartment in which two decaying young Saudi sisters have been lying for a month is open for inspection with a $40 rent increase – but there’s not much the property can do to mask the stench of death.

The families of Abdullah Al-Sahli, 24, and Amal Abdullah Al-Sahli, 23, died a month before their bodies were found in two separate bedrooms in their flat in Canterbury, in southwest Sydney, on June 7.

Two months after the shocking discovery, their deaths remain a mystery.

No one has been arrested and the police are still not sure how two young girls apparently died in the same place at the same time and remained there, undetected, for a month.

Their remains were only revealed during a police welfare check – conducted because they owed the landlord about $5,000 in unpaid rent, having failed to turn over $480 a week since mid-March.

Unable to make up for the massive financial loss, the owner gave the unit a fresh lick of paint, put in new floorboards, raised the price to $540 a week, and opened it up for public inspection Saturday morning.

Crime scenes usually cause price cuts, but the real estate agent said most potential renters were interested because surrounding units cost about $580 a week.

Before entering the property, potential tenants received the same verbal disclaimer from the realtor – “Some people died there but everything was cleaned up and everything was fine”.

“I just have to tell you that.”

The news did not surprise anyone – most of them were not interested in signing the lease.

Entering the unit on a relatively warm winter morning, sunlight shot through the large balcony doors and bounced off the tiles, white walls, and laminated kitchen cabinets—filling the open-plan living space with light.

However, there was a strange smell that was becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.

At first, it was easy to clean up the smell as chemical residue left over from a crime scene, or perhaps Pine O Cleen and Windex from a post-investigation cleaning attack.

It is understood that bottles of chemicals, such as bleach and other substances, were discovered next to their bodies in separate bedrooms – leading investigators to suspect the couple planned suicide.

The results of the temporary poisoning showed traces of substances found in the bedrooms also inside the women’s bodies, but the cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

But even with fresh air flowing into the unit through the large balcony doors on a Saturday morning, the smell was present – especially in the two small bedrooms – and didn’t smell like bleach or cleaning products.

In fact, the pungent smell that was difficult to determine at first was, suddenly and unequivocally, the smell of death and putrefaction.

According to the online advertisement, the property has “widespread balconies” that allow “airflow”

“Instability” was to say the least, and “strange” was not the right word. I felt hopeless.

The front bedroom has its own balcony door that looks out onto Canterbury Road – a busy road where trucks, buses, cars and people roll in at all times.

Thousands of humble people would have passed now and then when the Saheli sisters died in May, and when they were found in June – completely unaware of the heartbreaking situation that lay behind a few inches of plaster.

In the listing of real estate, the unit is described as a place “Ensures a life of smooth and luxurious comfort.”

In fact, the bedrooms were cramped and awkwardly shaped – trying to squeeze a double bed into either would be a challenge, even though there are one bedrooms and both have interior fittings, albeit small.

The kitchen was already outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, and as the menu promised, there were “remodeled stone stools, mirrored mirrors, and subtle leaf-shaped decorative details that keep the lines clean and natural for a timeless modern look.”

‘Marble-look tiles’ and ‘frameless showers’ can also be seen, although whether they are ‘combined with elegant details that carry the easy, layered mood’ is questionable.

The mood was certainly multi-layered, but perhaps not in the way the owner intended.

While there was a disclaimer on the list that said the sisters’ deaths ‘was not a random crime and would not pose a potential danger to society’, it is hard to imagine living there and sleeping peacefully.

Not because of any fear that the new occupant would succumb to the same fate, but because it simply felt like a tragedy within.

At the very least, a new tenant would likely have a headache from the smell alone – and being outdoors after viewing was a relief.

The smell will undoubtedly stop over time – at which point, it might be a nice place to live.
