On the 17th of August 2015, Junior Nelson (52) failed to turn up to show up to his jobcentre appointment. He would not make contact with his family after that date, and he was reported missing. On the 13th of March, 2016, police were called to Rabournmead Drive in Northolt, after remains were discovered in an overgrown embankment.
Analysis revealed the bones were human and further tests confirmed they were Junior Nelson’s. It is still not known how the father-of-one came to be where his remains were found, or how long his body had been there. Detective Inspector Jamie Stevenson said: “Our work so far has led us to believe that Junior’s death may have been linked to the supply of drugs. One of our lines of enquiry is that he met his death as a result of a violent act and his body was deposited in the area that his attackers may be familiar with.”
