Cindy Lesko

On October 23, 1994, Cindy Lesko went missing from her home in St. Claire Shores, Macomb County, MI.  Her body has never been found, but her husband, Albert Lesko III was tried and acquitted for Cindy’s murder in 2001.

Cindy filed domestic abuse reports against Albert in 1989 and 1992, but did not press charges against him at that time.  In 1994 she tipped authorities about six pounds of marijuana that Albert was hiding in the family home.  A short time later Albert severely beat Cindy, and was convicted of domestic abuse.  Cindy filed for a divorce, and retained temporary custody of their two children and the family home.

On the night of October 23, Albert was late in bringing the children home, and Cindy, who was speaking to a relative on the phone, said she was worried.  When Albert arrived with the kids later that night, a witness reported seeing a man and woman arguing on the front lawn of the Lesko house, and hearing the woman call for help, but authorities were not notified at that time.  It was the last time anyone saw or heard from Cindy.
