Police investigating three deaths in Brentford

An investigation is underway following the deaths of three people in Brentford. At approximately 00.50 on Tuesday 6 October, Metropolitan Police officers forced entry to a residential address in Golden Mile House, Clayponds Lane, Brentford following concerns for the welfare of the occupants. Inside the address, officers found the bodies of Poorna Kaameshwari Sivaraj, a 36-year-old woman, and her son, three-year-old Kailash Kuha Raj.

They also found a 42-year-old man suffering stab injuries. Despite the best efforts of officers and London Ambulance Service (LAS), he died at the scene. He has been identified as Kuha Raj Sithamparanathan and was married to Poorna and the father of Kailash.

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.”

Detectives from the Specialist Crime Command are investigating. Anyone who has information that could assist police with their investigation are asked to call 101 ref CAD 7365/6

Cllr Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities at Hounslow Council commented:

“We are deeply saddened to hear the tragic news of the deaths of three people in Brentford. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims, and the residents of Clayponds Lane”.
