On the day that Lesley Molseed's real killer was convicted, we ought to remember the innocent man who served 16 years in prison, found guilty of her murder, and released after multiple appeals, only to die a year after his release, Stefan Kiszko.
Despite having broken his ankle a few weeks earlier meaning he could never have climbed to where Lesley Molseed's body was found (evidence hidden and suppressed by the Police) and being medically impotent, meaning he could not have left semen stains on her clothing (again, evidence hidden by the police), Stefan Kiszko was found guilty by a 10-2 majority verdict, with David Waddington, later to be a very senior Tory Minister conducting an almost criminally inept defence of Stefan Kiszko which was criticised heavily after his successful appeal. Kiszko's defence failed to call key witnesses, failed to conduct a proper defence, and left a vulnerable man exposed to the very worst kind of police arm twisting in order to achieve a conviction.
Kizsko was beaten up twice in prison, suffered from schizophrenia after his second attack, and died just a year after being released from prison after 16 years of virtual solitary confinement.
Remembering two victims today. Lesley Molseed and Stefan Kizsko.
