Heartbreaking pictures have emerged of a two-year-old girl who was found dead with her mum, as homicide detectives probe the tragic deaths.
Shiwangi Bagoan, 25, and Ziana Bagoan were found at a property in Hounslow, west London, on Monday evening, December 14.
The pair were pronounced dead on the fourth floor flat in Drake Court, Old Meadow Lane, shortly after 4pm.
Police officers do not believe anyone else was involved in the incident.
Ms Bagoan worked as an anaesthetist's assistant for the University College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, MailOnline reports.
The Trust called her a "highly valued member of our team" who will be "missed by her colleagues".
A friend told the website: "I only saw her last week and she seemed fine. Shiwangi lived with her mother and her daughter. She didn't have a partner as far as I'm aware.
"She doted on little Zia. She was a lovely lady, a good friend of mine and I'm just devastated."
Other neighbours spoke of their shock as police searched the property.
One told the Evening Standard: "They were perfect as far as we could see.
