Parents and son, 3, killed in 'murder-suicide' are pictured as neighbours say they heard blazing rows for months
THESE are the tragic parents and three-year-old son who died in a suspected murder-suicide after neighbours claimed they had 'blazing rows'.
Cops found toddler Kailash Kuha Raj and his mother Poorna Kaameshwari Sivaraj, 36, dead when they forced their way in at 1am in Brentford, West London.
Husband Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan, 42, was treated by medics at the scene but died soon after.
Cops said his wife and child had been dead for "some time".
The family's cockapoo dog was also reportedly killed in the bloodbath in a new-build block of flats.
Neighbours said Malaysian-born Kuha and Poorna seemed the "perfect family".
One resident told MailOnline: "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."
Jamila, who lives in a neighbouring block, added: "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."
The couple, were are in their 40s and 30s, got married in Kuala Lumpar in 2015.
The next-door neighbour of the couple described them as a ‘lovely family’.
He said: “I’ve lived here for three years and would often see them.
“I didn’t hear anything last night and I only found out this morning, I’m shocked, in total shock, the police aren’t saying much so I am getting my information from the news.
“But it’s a terrible tragedy, they were a lovely family, lovely neighbours, I don’t know why this has happened.”

"They were always together and looked so loving.
"We are all devastated – they were the perfect family to us.”
Another local said the family were "quiet and calm".
While one neighbour said: “We are in total shock. It’s a nightmare. We don’t want our kids to know. It’s horrifying."
Police had received a call on Sunday from a family member saying they were conerned about Poorna.
They tried to attend the property several times on Monday but did got get a reply.
Police then forced themselves into the property.
Police said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Next of kin have been informed and post mortem examinations are scheduled to take place on Thursday.
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 21 September.
“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.”
Peter Gardner, West Area BCU Commander, said: “This horrific incident has understandably caused enormous shock and concern among local residents and across the borough; all our thoughts are with the family and friends of those affected.
"I would like to thank our officers and paramedics from the LAS who worked tirelessly and professionally under extremely traumatic circumstances in responding to this incident.
“Our officers in the West Area Command Unit are doing everything they can to support colleagues in Specialist Crime as we work to understand what has led to this terrible incident.
"Local residents can expect to see officers at the scene and patrolling the local area to provide reassurance, and if they have any concerns, I would urge them to speak to our officers."
