Boy, three, woman in her 30s and man in his 40s die in incident in west London house 

Pictures show the three-year-old boy who was found dead alongside his mother and father at their West London home after a ‘murder-suicide’. 

Scotland Yard today said they forced entry into the fourth-floor flat on Clayponds Lane in Brentford shorty before 1am this morning.

Officers found Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan, 42, suffering with stab wounds as well as the bodies of his wife Poorna Kaameshwari Sivaraj, 36, and their three-year-old son Kailash Kuha Raj.  

Kuha was treated by paramedics but was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, from the Met’s specialist crime command, said: ‘Although we are in the infancy of this investigation, it appears that Poorna and Kailash had been dead for some time.

‘This is a murder investigation and my team will work diligently to establish the sequence of events that led to their murders and the death of Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan.

‘Our initial enquiries have established that Poorna and Kailash had not been seen or heard from for some time, perhaps since around September 21.’

The Directorate of Professional Standards has made a referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as it is believed that Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan fatally injured himself when officers entered the property, the force said.

The family’s Cockapoo dog, which they would often be seen walking, is also believed to have been killed.

Residents this afternoon confirmed the dead parents as Malaysian-born Tamils, Kuha and Poorna Kaamesha Sithamparanathan, aged 42 and 36 respectively

Shocked neighbours today recalled hearing blazing rows at the Sithamparanathans’ home over the past few months. 

One neighbour who lives on the fifth floor told MailOnline: ‘During the lockdown I could hear them arguing a lot.

‘I could hear her screaming at her husband, telling him to take his medicine. Then on another occasion, he threw them out of the window, and I looked down and could see them on the ground.’

Another neighbour added: ‘Things got really bad between them, especially during the lockdown.

‘They are one of the few couples with a young child in our block and you could hear the screaming at each other, sometimes for very long periods.’

The couple, who married in Kuala Lumpar in 2015, also owned a Cockapoo, which is also believed to have been killed in the incident.

Jamila, who lives in a neighbouring block said: ‘It’s tragic. They loved their dog and I’d see them all the time taking him out for walks. They were a lovely family and none of this makes any sense.

‘The officers told me that there was blood all over the flat and that the dog had also been killed.’

Forensic officers in protective suits were spotted entering the police cordon this afternoon. 

Detectives from the Specialist Crime Command are investigating and a post-mortem examinations will be scheduled for all three people in due course.

Sheri Diba, who has lived in the building for seven years and said that it is a ‘nice area’, spoke of her shock on hearing the news. 

She told reporters: ‘I could not imagine someone is dead in this building. It’s a very nice area, very nice building, I never had any problem. I’m really shocked.’ 

The average house value on the road is £440,000 and it is located near Kew Bridge train station as well as the new Brentford FC stadium. 

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command leads the investigation and said: ‘Although we are in the infancy of this investigation is appears that Poorna and Kailash had been dead for some time.

‘This is a murder investigation and my team will work diligently to establish the sequence of events that led to their murders and the death of Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan.

‘Our initial enquiries have established that Poorna and Kailash had not been seen or heard from for some time, perhaps since around the September 21.

‘We know the family often walked their dog, a poodle cross breed, in and around the local area and I would ask anyone who saw them at any time in the last month to contact police so we can begin to build a full picture of their lives.

‘I know I speak on behalf of all the officers in my team that words cannot sufficiently sum up the devastation that this horrific incident will have on the families of those involved. 

‘However, I can reassure them that we will do all we can to provide them with the answers they need about what has happened here.’
