THIS is the first picture of a mum, dad and two young daughters who were found dead with their dog at home in an apparent murder-suicide during the coronavirus lockdown.

Kelly Fitzgibbons, 40, and her partner Robert Needham, 42, were killed with their girls Ava, five, and Lexi, three, in their house in Woodmancote.

Police have launched a murder investigation but no arrests have been made and detectives are not looking for any suspects.

It has been suggested that Mr Needham may have killed his family before taking his own life.

However, this has not been confirmed by Sussex Police.

The couple and their two children lived at the £500k property with Mr Needham's mother, Maureen, 77, a neighbour said.

Their horrifying deaths come just days after the family posted touching pictures of them enjoying a country walk together.

Ms Fitzgibbons, who shared the photos on her Facebook, captioned them: “Our walk for the day" alongside a heart emoji.

On her bio she states: "Totally in love with my baby girls".

Chief Superintendent Jerry Westerman from Sussex Police said: "This is believed to be an isolated incident contained to one property and in these early stages of the investigation we are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.

"Our thoughts are with the family at this incredibly difficult and challenging time."
