CLEVELAND - Joyce Leszyeski said losing her daughter Ashley has been devastating.
She said she can't sleep and peace escapes her because she knows someone murdered her daughter.
"It's been terrible. It's been a hard two days before I found my daughter. Something told me in my heart my daughter was dead," Joyce Leszyeski said.
Ashley Leszyeski, 21, was last seen in the area of Heath Avenue on May 3. On Tuesday, her remains were found in the area of East 93rd Street and Anderson Avenue in Cleveland. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office identified the body as the young mother of ywo.
Ashley's sister, Tina Leszyeski, said the medical examiner's office told her the body was badly decomposed.
"We are happy we know she wasn't raped. Ashley was struck in the throat by some type of object, punctured some form of bleeding in her throat," Tina Leszyeski said.
Tina said her sister was not small in stature, so she finds it hard to believe that one person was able to take her down. She said she believes there was a struggle.
"I just don't understand how someone so strong, a bigger girl, could easily be drug through that open area and nobody see nothing," Tina said Leszyeski. "We need somebody to come forward for the sake of her babies. Give her kids closure. My sister is not resting right now. She's dead, but she's not resting she's here I know waiting for justice to be served."
