Officer tells of Jersey families' 'awful grief'

The detective leading the investigation into the deaths of six people on Jersey spoke yesterday of the unimaginable grief their families are going through.

Izabela Rzeszowski (30) and her children Kinga (6) and two-year-old Kasper are believed to have been stabbed to death by her husband Damian (30).

He is also thought to have killed his father-in-law Marek Garstki, Marta de la Haye (34) and her five-year-old daughter Julia in the attack on Sunday on Jersey.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull said he was hoping to meet the victims' families soon.

"We cannot begin to imagine exactly what the relatives and friends of these two young families must be going through.

"But we can all be conscious of how difficult and traumatic it is, and I would ask that they be allowed the time and dignity to be able to grieve in peace," he said.

"There is also a great deal of rumour and speculation about what has happened here and that can only cause the relatives even more distress, so I appeal to everyone to allow our investigation to follow the evidence."
