An 18-year-old man has been found guilty of murdering a teenager in Northolt back in 2017.

Joel Amade, 18, from Ilford, was found guilty of the murder of Jason Isaacs after a trial at the Old Bailey.

He will be sentenced on Monday, 13 May 2019.

Jason was was stabbed in a residential cul-de-sac in Northolt in 2017.

Detective Sergeant Jonathan Hurley from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, who led the investigation, said:

“On that night in 2017, Jason was looking forward to spending time with his friends, much like any typical teenager in London.

“No young person should go out for the night with his friends and never return, but that was the consequence of this ferocious attack.

“Tragically, his Saturday night ended by paying the highest of prices, and my thoughts and condolences remain with his family and friends

“Throughout this process, Amade maintained that he was not even in the vicinity of Northholt on the night of the murder, but this has been found to be false.

“I would like to recognise the bravery of Jason’s mother and family, as harrowing evidence about the murder was heard and shown in court.

“The residents of Newnham Close and Jason’s friends who tried in vain to save his life, will also have to live with the events of that night for the rest of their lives.

“Jason never regained consciousness and his family were not able to say goodbye.

“I hope today’s verdict brings some degree of closure and modest level of comfort to his loved ones.”
