The final days of a Sydney mother and daughter, whose bodies were discovered in a car in their backyard after a suspected suicide pact, have been revealed by their neighbours, who are still coming to terms with the tragedy.

45-year-old Sisi Pouladian and her 20-year-old daughter Ashley were found by a neighbour deceased along with their beloved German Shepherd after a note was discovered on the door of their Greenacre home at around midday on Monday.

A second note was found with their bodies, explaining that they could no longer deal with the pain following the death of a 24-year-old man, the son and brother of the women, who passed away after a surgical procedure went wrong.

Pouya Pouladian, a young pilot, died back in March following complications with a procedure. One neighbour said that his mother had been left devastated and heartbroken following the death of her son.

Another neighbour also detailed the final days of the two women in the lead up to their premature death. He said that he saw the pair rushing around, tidying the house and the backyard the weekend before.

“They were making everything spotless and cleaned up the backyard,” said the neighbour to the Daily Mail.

“I used to share their internet as well – but it was disconnected three days ago.”


Ashley wrote a tribute to her brother on her Facebook page in the days following his death, explaining her devastation.

“Due to…unforeseen events post-operation, my 24-year-old brother, Pouya Pouladian passed away a few days ago,” read the tribute.

“He was an amazing and hardworking person who never failed to care deeply for my mother and I. He was truly our inspiration in life. Words cannot describe what an angel he was. Rest easy Captain Pouya.”

It’s understood that the 20-year-old also lost her father six years earlier to a heart attack.
