In the early hours of Wednesday 19 June 2019, our beloved son, David Bello-Monerville was stabbed to death in Barnet London. David and his brothers were preventing a robbery at their home and in doing so his other two brothers were also injured. There is an ongoing police investigation into this case and therefore we cannot discuss the details of the incident.
David’s loss is traumatic for us, and we are seeking financial support to arrange a fitting funeral and memorial for him.
For any family the loss of one loved one would be unbearable. David is the third son we have lost to sensless murders on London’s streets.
In March 1994, our first son, Trevor Monerville, was stabbed fatally 13 times in Stoke Newington, London. No one has ever been charged for his murder.
In February 2013, Trevor’s 19 year old brother, Joseph Burke-Monerville was shot in a case of mistaken identity. Again no one has been charged for his murder.
We are a law-abiding family but as Black Londoners we have been failed by agencies in the past and faced racism.
There is nothing more important to us than the love we have our for our beloved sons.
We now need to ensure that David is not denied his dignity at death and that he and his brothers, all innocent victims of violence, are not denied justice. Anything less will mean that our lives are considered to be cheap and worthless. We will never tolerate that existence.
Please help us and donate.
