This is a photo of a 19 year old girl who stopped aging at age 2 being held by her 17 year old younger sister.
Rosemary was the oldest daughter of Joseph and Rose Kennedy. Although she lived to age 86, she underwent a lobotomy at the age of 23 that left her incapacitated and institutionalized in a Wisconsin facility. The family long maintained she was born mentally retarded, but others argue that she was not, evidenced by her careful diaries in her youth and traveling alone-and that her father had her lobotomized due to inappropriate behavior.

Ronald DeFeo, Jr Convicted of six counts of murder at Amityville, New York in 1974. He murdered his mother, father, 2 brothers and 2 sisters.

The theory had been debunked and proven incorrect in court (the book The Night the Defoes Died is based on the "false" information).

At first glance this could be a photograph of girls posing together on a sofa, however the girl on the left is deceased. Her sister has been dressed in an identical dress and places her head on her sisters shoulder. She looks so sad it is just heartbreaking, losing your beloved sister at such a young age. You can see that a book has been used to prop up the deceased girl. Such a sad photo..
