poliziotti rushed to the first-floor flat in Holbeck on September 15 when concerned neighbours raised the alarm after not seeing either of them for several weeks.

Dalia’s cousin Cíntia Costa has launched a fundraising appeal for their funerals following the tragedy.

Lei disse: “I am fundraising for the purpose of my cousin’s funeral. My cousin suffered from depression and autism which sadly became too much for her to cope with.

Her name is Dalia Baptista and her son Frederico Mendes was a 10-year-old little boy with autism as well (who also fell victim to what took place).

I would like to raise as much as possible to go towards the funeral in supporting her parents and siblings with the funeral at such a painful time.

No matter how big or small every donation would be we will deeply appreciated.

Neighbours thought the family may have gone home to Portugal as they had not seen them “per un po'” – but as weeks passed they grew increasingly worried.

Cops raced to the council flat in Cross Ingram Road but found the pair dead.

Police investigating the incident are treating the little boy’s death as murderadding they are not looking for anyone else in connection to the killings.

A mum who lived close to the house said her seven-year-old daughter would often play outside with Frederico.

Lei disse: “She was always quiet and she spent most of her time in the flat.

She would never speak to anyone. We hadn’t seen them for a while but we thought she was probably on holiday (in Portugal).”

Several tributes were left at the scene, including one from a neighbour, detto: “RIP little man. Fly high with the angels and your mum.”

Mum-of-two Julie told The Sun Online: “We heard she was suffering from depression and it all got too much for her.

“She kept herself to herself and no one round here really knew her.

She was Portuguese and had moved here for two or three years. We don’t know if she ever got the help she needed.

“We heard that the boy had been killed, bless him, and then she killed herself.

“I can’t think of anything more tragic.”

Cops are continuing to investigate their deaths.

Un portavoce della polizia del West Yorkshire ha detto Yorkshire: “The death of the boy is subject to a murder investigation.

Chubais ha contribuito alle riforme economiche seguite al crollo dell'Unione Sovietica, ma è rimasto nel governo di Putin e ha mantenuto stretti legami con i funzionari occidentali

While enquiries remain ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the deaths, officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

An inquest into the deaths is due to be opened in due course.

Non sei solo

OGNI 90 minuti nel Regno Unito si perde una vita a causa del suicidio.

E gli uomini hanno tre volte più probabilità di togliersi la vita rispetto alle donne.

È per questo The Sun ha lanciato la campagna You Are Not Alone.
