Alexandria Duval: Did She Murder Her Twin?


Alexandria Duval, who once ran a yoga studio in Palm Beach County with her sister, Anastasia Duval, was charged with murder after anĀ auto crash in Hawaii that killed her twin.

Duval, who is also known as Alison Dadow, was driving a 2016 Ford Explorer when it went off the Hana Highway in Maui, plunging 200 feet to rocks below, ABC News affiliate KITV in Honolulu reported.

Gossip columnist Jose Lambiet tells Inside Edition that Anastasia and Alexandria Duval, aka Ann and Alison Dadow, both 37, did everything together but had deep-seated anger issues and often fought with each other.

Duval's twin, identified as Anastasia Duval, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Because of that concern, Judge Blaine Kobayashi ordered her to be held without bail.

The deputy prosecutor also pointed out that Alexandria Duval had changed her name from Alison Dadow after moving to Maui.

Sometime before moving to Hawaii, the two assumed new identities under the names Alexandria and Anastasia Duval.

Court documents reveal witness accounts saying "the passenger was pulling at the driver's hair and the steering wheel", the station noted.

'We had information after she was discharged from the hospital she attempted to fly out of the jurisdiction Wednesday night, ' Higa said.

Referring to them by their previous names, she described Alison (later Alexandria) as outgoing with a "big, dominant personality" and a tendency to drink too much sometimes, and called Ann (Anastasia) "the sweetest, kindest, most level-headed person you would ever meet". One of them also showed up at the Family Life Center homeless shelter at the beginning of 2016, asking for assistance.

"I saw a pair of hands jerking the head, pulling the hair", witness Lawrence Lau said.

The twin sisters opened the yoga studio Twin Power Yoga in Florida but it was shut down in 2014.

"The sisters had an exceptionally close bond even by identical twin standards", Eddins says. Then they saw the vehicle "accelerate forward and then take a sharp left over the cliff", he said.

"The fear we have is that she could easily go to a country where we don't have an extradition treaty".

The accused appeared in court Monday with her arm in a sling, said her defense attorney, Todd Eddins. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. A witness recorded Alexandria Duval's dramatic rescue on a cell phone.

The crash is the latest twist in the freaky lives of the twins, an infamous pair of yoga studio owners from Florida.

The duo then moved to Utah and opened another studio, which also closed due to legal and financial problems, reported.

According to court records, both sisters have Wailuku District Court cases pending from an incident December 24.
