Updated: Dec 30, 2021


On the 25th of November, 2019, Justin Bello (38) was found deceased in a communal bin area at the back of Lovett Way, Wembley. The police were called at 8.15 am, and on the 9th of December a murder investigation was launched. Scotland Yard said officers are not releasing a cause of death for operational purposes, but said the death “is not thought to have been the result of a stab or gunshot injury”.


Justin Bello was a gym sales manager for Nuffield Health and he had a young son. His mother Christine Reilly (62) said Justin was last seen buying food for friends in Clapham, 13 miles away from where his body was discovered in Wembley. “He didn’t know anyone in Wembley,” Mrs Reilly said. “Police say he was taken there in two cars."
