A three-year-old boy found dead at a home in Brentford died after being strangled, police have determined.

Kailash Kuha Raj was found dead inside the home along with mum Poorna Kaameshwari Sivaraj, 36, and a 42-year-old man who was later identified as Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan.

Kuha – who was married to Poorna and was Kailash's dad – died of a stab wound to the chest while Poorna's cause of death was also determined as being from a knife wound.

The death of Kailash resulted from compression of the neck, police said.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and friends.

My investigation remains ongoing and I would continue to appeal to anyone who may have information that will assist us to come forward.

“We now know how this family tragically lost their lives, but we still need to find out why.

“Our initial enquiries established that Poorna and Kailash had not been seen or heard from for some time; Poorna since around Monday, 21 September, and Kailash since around Thursday, 24 September.

What happened between then and when our colleagues found them?

“Did you see any of the family, or hear from them, over this period of time? Any piece of information could prove vital.”
