ONE cryptocurrency dealer has been charged with murdering his own mother, two years after she was found dead in her Perth home.
Andre Rebelo, 26, was arrested on Tuesday and traded his lavish lifestyle for his Perth influencer partner for a prison cell.
He and Gracie Piscopo had lived a picture-perfect life, from vacations in the Maldives to extravagant parties for their three-year-old son, all shared with a million fans on Social Media.

But Rebelo has now been charged with the murder of his 58-year-old mother, Colleen Rebelo, who was found dead by a family member at her Bicton home in 2020 and remembered as a “real-life angel”.

There is no indication that Piscopo had anything to do with the alleged crime.

Detective Sergeant Clinton Bragg said police were pursuing several investigative avenues, including alleged dishonesty.

“The investigation was a complex investigation which drew on many resources and has taken us two years to get to this point,” he said.

Rebelo was charged with five counts of forgery shortly after his mother’s death and pleaded not guilty.

Police declined to answer questions about how the woman died.

Rebelo is due to appear at Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on December 21.
