Mum, 25, found dead next to body of daughter, two, who she 'doted on' as cops probe murder suicide at West London flat

A MUM was found dead next to the body of her two-year-old daughter who she "doted on" – as cops probe a murder suicide.

The 25-year-old woman, who has been named locally as Shiwangi Bagoan, was found next to her dead daughter Zia in her West London flat.


Metropolitan Police officers rushed to the scene in Hounslow just after 4pm on Monday.

Murder cops launched an investigation and believe no one else was involved in the incident.

One neighbour told The Sun that Shiwangi was "so lovely" and "seemed so happy".

Another said she "doted on" Zia and even bought bikes for them last week.

'MURDER INVESTIGATION'

The neighbour said: "She was lovely. It’s so sad – I’m shocked. She’d bought bikes for her and her daughter last week.

"I just couldn’t imagine something like this happening. She seemed so happy."

Vipul Limbachia, who runs a dry cleaners nearby, told MailOnline: "I knew it was something serious.

"I only found out this morning it was a mother apparently killing her daughter and then herself."

She was lovely. It’s so sad – I’m shocked. She’d bought bikes for her and her daughter last week."

It is believed Shiwangi worked at an NHS hospital outside of London.

Residents saw a police car and officers arrive at the development yesterday evening and said a woman and a young child were escorted from the building.

A 68-year-old woman, who lives in the block but did not wish to be named, said: "I just looked out my window and I saw the police were outside.

"Then a woman and a child came out. The child was about seven or eight.

GIRL FOUND DEAD

"They didn't say anything. I think they were escorted by police and there was one marked police car.

"I don't know if anymore were parked elsewhere as there were a lot, a lot of police officers.

"It is very upsetting, a woman and a two year old child. It's very shocking."

A Met Police spokesman said: "The woman and the girl were related to each other.

"Next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

"An investigation is under way led by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Homicide).

"While the investigation is still in its early stages, officers do not currently believe anyone else was involved in this incident."
