Dad Jitrenda was also found dead at the family home in Clayton near Bradford on Monday night.

The father-of-two is believed to have murdered his family before killing himself.

Police have launched a murder investigation. They are not looking for anyone else at this time.

Concerned neighbours had alerted police when the family had not been since Friday.

Officers say the bodies may have been in the house ‘for some time’.

Tributes have poured in for the second year on twitter, and devastated friends have laid flowers at her home.

Coursemates described her as “such a kind person”.

In a statement Leeds University said:  “This is dreadful and shocking news and our thoughts are with Trisha’s friends and loved ones.

“Staff are working with the University’s counselling and chaplaincy services to help students who are affected by this tragedy and we will do all we can to support them.”
