Meet Andre Rebelo Family Members
Social media influencer Gracie Piscopo recently broke her silence about her lover Andre Rebelo being charged with murdering his mom at her mom. He was charged with trying to forge his mother’s death certificate. Andre was arrested in November 2022 for murdering his mom Colleen Rebelo after she was found dead at her Western Australian home in the affluent Perth suburb of Bicton, on May 25, 2020, and remembered as a “real life angel”.
As there were no evident symptoms of injuries, the mother-of-death four’s was not at first thought to be suspicious. Shortly after, her body was burned. However, once suspicions of life insurance fraud surfaced five months later, the police opened an investigation.
A crypto trader, Andre is accused of using his own credit card to get life insurance for his mother just weeks before she passed away.
A further charge of attempting to gain benefit by fraud has since been dropped by police. ‘It’s taken two years to get it to this point,’ said Detective Sergeant Clinton Bragg when Rebelo was initially charged with murder last month. ‘It’s just an example of how we will not stop until we thoroughly investigate to bring this to a conclusion.’
Andre is due to appear in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on December 21.
Andre came from a family of five that included his mom Colleen and his three siblings. Learn more about them below in this piece
