DENVER (AP) - One of the Australian twin sisters who shot themselves in a suicide pact at a Colorado shooting range wrote several letters to a survivor of the Columbine school shooting in the months after the tragedy.

Reports say that Kristin Hermeler said in a June 1999 letter to Columbine survivor Brooks Brown that she also had been "rejected, victimized and ostracized."

The letters further suggest that the sisters had a fascination with the Columbine massacre, in which gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and themselves.

Kristin and Candice Hermeler, both 29, had a photocopy of the Time magazine cover on the Columbine shooting when they shot themselves on Monday.

Kristin Hermeler died, while her sister survived.
