Couple with two disabled children die in 'suicide pact
Jan, right, and Juila Tshabalala, left, who had two disabled children, were found dead at their home in West Sussex, main, on Christmas morning by a relative and a neighbour after an apparent suicide pact.
It is believed they had their family meal a day early on Christmas Eve, then sent their two young children to stay with relatives. Residents living nearby said they seemed 'completely normal and pleasant' but were believed to be 'in deep financial trouble'. A worried relative had gone to the couple's home shortly after 9am and saw the bodies through a window.
