Grenfell stunt suspect’s dad was suitcase killing victim

Murdered: Lorenzo and (below) son Paul

ONE of the Grenfell Tower bonfire video suspects is the son of a millionaire landlord who was murdered and his body dumped in a suitcase.

Paul Bussetti, 46, was questioned by police after online footage of the stunt prompted widespread outrage.

Now it has emerged his property tycoon father Lorenzo ‘Len’ Bussetti was killed 16 years ago. The 55-year-old was shot in the head and his body dismembered before his remains were found in east London. His son Paul is thought to have inherited a large part of his £6.43million fortune.

Six men have been quizzed over the Grenfell video and released under investigation. They included Clifford Smith, 49, and his 19-year-old son Bobbi Connell, who held the bonfire party at their home in South Norwood, south London, on Sunday. Theresa May condemned the clip — showing a model of the tower burning — as ‘utterly unacceptable’.

Father-of-three Lorenzo Bussetti, who owned four properties, was shot by a tenant as they argued over a deposit on a bedsit in Brixton, south London, in September 2002. An Old Bailey jury heard his body was stashed in a suitcase and left in bushes near Hackney Marshes. His killer was jailed for 14 years.

Paul Bussetti and his family are said to have left their home in West Norwood, south London, and gone into hiding.

His daughter Daniella has deleted her social media profiles amid reports her 19-year-old boyfriend Trent Bogle has also been questioned by police.

The arrested men were held on suspicion of public order offences after handing themselves in to police on Monday. The blaze in the west London block killed 72 people in June last year.
