Like two peas in a pod, twin kids are generally adorable, but those on this listicle are any parent’s nightmare.
If you think bad genes run in the family, these terrible twins are the perfect proof. Not only did they look alike, but they were also partners in heinous crimes.
Many twin siblings, even those separated at birth, end up leading parallel lives – like choosing the same job, marrying the same type of woman, or preferring the same ice cream type. Our evil twins had similar destinies and a liking for the same thing – hurting other people.
10 The Chesco Twins
Daniel and Caleb Tate, aka the Chesco twins, looked like the perfect kids when they came back from college to visit their folks in Pennsylvania over the Christmas break in 2016.
Only the 23-year-old young men had a bad idea of fun, and they entertained themselves by blowing things up all over Chester and Lancaster counties. Using pipes, fuel containers, and propane canisters, they made crude explosive devices.
Their explosive spree caused a lot of damage and scared the hell out of the residents, but fortunately, no one was hurt. Besides a stint in jail to cool down, the judge forbade them to contact each other for five years.
9 Robert And Stephen Spahalski
Although they operated separately, the Spahalski twins were equally deranged. They committed various thefts and burglaries until, in 1971, Stephen went mental during a robbery and killed a store owner. He said the man had made a pass at him, so he bashed his skull with a hammer.
The brothers were reunited at times when they happened to serve time in the same prison. They once even tried to break out together but failed miserably.
8 Gretchen Graham And Gloria Franklin
Despicable human beings. The two sisters, Gretchen and Gloria, were arrested in 1989 for a shocking crime.
The two were at Gretchen’s house in Michigan, allegedly taking care of her son, Shawn Graham, four years old. Only the boy was a handful, so the sisters got tired of him and locked him in a bedroom.
Somehow, Shawn managed to set the room on fire, and none of the two made an effort to save him. They just let the child die in the blaze, without calling for help or dialing 911.
The lawyers for the defense argued that the women were mentally disabled, but they still got sentenced to 8 to 40 years in jail. Retarded? Even animals have been known to retrieve their young ones from a fire!
7 Betty Wilson And Peggy Lowe
The two sisters were very close to each other and when Betty got sick and tired of her husband, Jack Wilson, her twin, Peggy, offered to help.
Not as in sitting them down and talking some sense into them, but as in helping her sister find a hitman to get rid of Jack.
James White had a thing for Peggy and offered Dr. Wilson for just a few thousand dollars. He wasn’t that bright, and police soon uncovered the plot behind the doctor’s death.
