Case 84

Lesley Molseed

(Part 2)

[Part 2 of 2]

The Molseed family were satisfied justice was served for child-killer Stefan Kiszko. Yet, his capture and conviction did not bring April Molseed any sense of joy, quote:
 “When Lesley died, I died a kind of death. It just completely and utterly killed every emotion that I had … I’m still the same today.”

Trial judge Sir Hugh Park commended the police officers of West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester for their great work in bringing Kiszko to justice – and for their expertise in sifting through the masses of case material.

Judge Park also praised those who had bravely come forward and reported the indecent acts committed by Stefan Kiszko. Maxine Buckley was singled out by the judge and thanked for her sharp eye in identifying Stefan as the sexual deviant in the Turf Hill Estate. It was Maxine who’d set the line of enquiry into motion, leading to the capture of Stefan Kiszko.

Her mother, Sheila, was proud of her daughter’s actions. She told the media Rochdale’s children were much safer now. Thanks to her daughter Maxine – a monster had been put away… Or so it seemed.
