Tybalt (who is Juliet’s cousin), was killed and her parents believe that is the reason for her heartache and committing suicide.

In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two teenagers fall in love only to find out that their families are bitter enemies. Romeo, formerly in love with Rosaline, is now mesmerized by Juliet’s beauty and completely forgets about his former love.
