    Well, the "clever" answer is that painter and/or farmer were pregnant. Other possibilities are that there was already a dead body there or someone else came in between.

    I don't understand the significance of "2 other people came", but maybe that's just a paraphrase from the actual source of the riddle.

    One night a painter and a farmer went to a deserted island, the next day too, other people came and found three dead bodies how is this possible

    if you change "2" to "too", you have a painter & a farmer coming to the island twice - so there were a total of four
