Annie and Robin Korkki on vacation on the island nation of Seychelles.

MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota man says his family has been given little information on how his two sisters died while vacationing on a tropical African island.

The bodies of 37-year-old Annie Korkki and 42-year-old Robin Korkki were found in their resort villa last week on the island of Seychelles off Africa’s east coast in the Indian Ocean.

Their brother, Chris Korkki, of Lakeville, says the family has learned nothing through official channels about his sisters’ deaths. Their bodies were found Sept. 22 at the Maia Luxury Resort.

Korkki tells the Star Tribune  that his mother and brother have traveled to Seychelles to press officials for answers. He says his mother has also been talking with the U.S. Embassy.

Robin lived in Chicago. Annie lived in Denver.
