Jersey Massacre Suspect Damian Rzeszowski Questioned By Police

PRESS ASSOCIATION -- A 30-year-old man arrested over the murders of three adults and three children in Jersey is being questioned in police custody today following his release from hospital.

Detectives have been waiting to quiz Damian Rzeszowski, 30, about the massacre in the Channel Island's capital St Helier on August 14.

He is believed to have repeatedly stabbed himself in the chest following the attacks, which left his 30-year-old wife Izabela Rzeszowska dead along with their children, Kinga, five, and two-year-old Kacper.

He is also to face questions about the deaths of his wife's father Marek Garstka, 56, and her friend Marta Dominika De La Haye, 34, and five-year-old daughter Julia Frances.

A spokesman for States of Jersey Police said the suspect was released from hospital on Wednesday evening.

He added: "The man, who has been under police guard in hospital while subject to ongoing treatment for his injuries since the incident at Victoria Crescent, St Helier, on Sunday, August 14th, was declared well enough for discharge from hospital and, consequently, transferred to police detention."

The spokesman said detectives will now question the suspect while he is in police custody.

A team of officers from States of Jersey, Devon and Cornwall and Metropolitan Police forces is expected to travel to Poland early next week to interview families and friends of the victims.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull, who is leading the inquiry, is awaiting consent from the Polish authorities to allow the team to fly out to the country in order to build a picture of the victims and their lives.

Post-mortem examinations carried out on the six victims, who were Polish, confirmed they all died from stab wounds.
