A woman was due to attend a court custody hearing on the same day she and her two young children were found dead in the remains of a suspicious blaze.
The bodies of Anne Muhoro, 45, her son Ezvin, 8, and her daughter Furaha, 5, were found inside the house on Peter Coppin Street, Bonner, following the tragic fire on February 19.
That morning, Ms Muhoro was listed to appear as a respondent in a child custody matter heard by Judge Tonkin.
It is understood the applicant in the matter was the children's father, who was seeking an amendment to the children's custody arrangements.
Court documents recorded how Ms Muhoro made "no appearance" in the matter, which was listed for around 11am.
Fire crews had found the bodies of her and children earlier that morning.
A spokeswoman for ACT Policing said post-mortem examinations had been completed, but police were still waiting on autopsy results and other tests before they could release further information.
Police have been unable to comment so far on whether the focus of the investigation was a suspected murder, or a murder-suicide.
A police spokeswoman said on Wednesday that investigators were still looking at a number of possibilities.
"There are numerous avenues of investigation being pursued to determine the exact circumstances that led to this tragic outcome," she said.
Fire crews arrived to find a house "well alight" on Peter Coppin Street just before 9am on February 19.
At first, crews found no one inside during a preliminary search of the house, but the grim discovery followed once they had put the fire out.
Detective Superintendent Scott Moller has previously said it was too early in the investigation to speculate on the circumstances surrounding the deaths, but fire accelerants had likely been used across multiple "seats of fire" in the house.
"This is very early days in this investigation and I'm not going to, at this time, speculate on how it's going to be finalised," he said at the time.
"This is a tragic situation and everyone gets affected by it," he added.
"And everyone that we've spoken to is heartbroken."
It is understood Ms Muhoro's children had been schooled at the Brindabella Christian College.
Neighbours have painted a picture of a reserved family who lived a quiet life in Canberra, while others have spoken of the family's close ties to the Northside Life Church in Harrison.
Northside Life Church Pastor Susan Miller has previously said the family had been remembered at a private memorial earlier in February.
"Our church did have a private memorial, invite only...which brought lovely tributes to the family we loved dearly," she said.
"I can say nothing else at this time, sorry," she added.
The Kenyan High Commission said Ms Muhoro, an Australian citizen, had two brothers.
One of her brothers lived in the United States and the other was understood to be still living in Kenya, the commission said.
ACT Policing are still asking for anyone with dash cam footage from Bonner between midnight and 8.45am on the day of the fire.
Anyone who might have information has been asked to contact Crime Stoppers online or via 1800 333 000.
