A pair of ‘healthy and happy’ Arizona sisters have died by assisted suicide in a Swiss clinic, Swiss authorities said.

Lila Ammouri, 54, a palliative care doctor, and Susan Frazier, 49, a nurse, traveled to Basel, Switzerland on February 3, and spoke to their brother Cal Ammouri, 60, shortly before. 

They are said to have arrived there on February 5, but never got their flight home. 

A spokesman for the Basel-Landschaft Public Prosecutor’s Office confirmed to  The Independent that the sisters had died by suicide ‘within the legal framework’.

Cal, of New York, said is unclear why his sisters chose to end their lives, and that U.S. consular services have kept him in the dark.

‘This is the most terrible thing that’s ever happened to me,’ Cal told DailyMail.com ‘ I’m an only child now. I don’t understand any of it.’  

Suicide is legal at Switzerland’s famous Dignitas clinic, with visitors required to undergo a series of checks before being allowed to end their lives.

According to Cal and long-time friends of the women, the sisters were do back at work at Aetna Health Insurance on February 15 but never showed up. 

The grieving brother said that both sisters appeared happy, with Lila owning a home in Phoenix and enjoying her job helping patients with serious illnesses and pain and Susan recently getting a promotion. 

‘Why would you leave your jobs, your home, your loved ones, just abandon everything,’ Cal asked. ‘I just want some answers.’ 

Michael Lutz, a spokesperson for the Basel-Landschaft Public Prosecutor’s Office, told The Independent that the sisters death did not immediately result in a criminal investigation since it was strictly performed through legal means. 

Swiss authorities are currently working with investigators from the Phoenix Police Department to learn what happened to the two sisters. Phoenix Police did not immediately return DailyMail.com’s request for comment.  

The sister’s death was confirmed by the U.S. Consulate in Switzerland on February 18, weeks after friends and loved ones took to the Internet to spread awareness over their disappearance.

Dr. Majid Bilgari, a longtime friend of the sisters, said no one had heard from the duo since February 9, four days after they arrives in Switzerland. 

Prior to that, Bilgari told Fox 10 that co-workers had been texting them and felt that the person responding was not actually one of the sisters. 

‘Some of the text communications they had, we are certain they were not from them,’ Biglari said. ‘They were most likely fabricated with someone else.’

Like Cal, Bilgari mentioned that both sisters were happy and it was not like them to suddenly go missing. 

Bilgari did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
