A neighbour, who has lived on the street her entire life, said she was “devastated” to learn the mother and daughter had died.

“They seemed like a lovely family. There were always people coming and going from the house,” she told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“It’s so sad to think that two of them died.”

Another neighhour Vera Wen said was “totally shocked” by the deaths and is “still shaking” upon learning the tragic news.
