Heartbreaking videos show brothers, 7 and 9, playing at home months before being found dead along with their mum | The Sun

HEARTBREAKING videos show two brothers playing at home just months before they were found dead alongside their mum.

Nadja De Jager, 47, and her sons Alexander, nine, and seven-year-old Maximus were discovered in Belvedere, South East London, yesterday morning.

Footage posted to YouTube in June last year shows the youngsters building a playhouse on decking, which appears to be at the back of their house.

Alex and Max work together to screw the various colourful parts together.

In another clip, shared in April 2021, little Max shows off a magic trick where he makes his name appear on a tray of water.

And two other videos show Alex reading rhyming poems, one called The Bear.

Police were called to Mayfield Road at around 11.50am on March 9 where they discovered the bodies of Alex, Max and Nadja.

The property was quickly cordoned off and an investigation led by the Met's Specialist Crime Command was launched.

The force confirmed they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.

Today, a police van and forensics vehicle were parked outside the 1940s three-bedroom terraced house while officers combed for clues.

The driveway, which has a grey Mitsubishi pick-up truck on it, is scattered with children’s toys, including a mini basketball net.

Two cops were seen leaving the house, which has a "beware of the dog sign" on the front door, with boxes of evidence.

A trio in hazmat suits also examined the inside of the car, including a handbag on the front passenger seat, two children's car seats in the back and a scooter in the boot.

Detective Inspector Ollie Stride said: "This is a deeply sad case and we are continuing to establish the circumstances that led to this tragic incident.

"I would like to thank the local community for their cooperation while our officers go about their enquiries.

"Our thoughts today are very much with the family as they struggle to come to terms with their loss and we ask that their privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time."

Shocked neighbours have described their shock following the triple tragedy.

Marion Beazer, 69, who lives opposite, said: "Seeing the kids' toys out the front tugs on the heart strings. It’s just dreadful."

Christopher Babutulde, 68, who lives two doors down from the family, said he used to see the mum walking her sons to and from school.

He added: "It’s really shocking. We’re such a close knit community who really care for each other."
