Timeline :: Heidi Koseda dies

Silhouette for no photo

Heidi Koseda starved to death in a locked room in Hillingdon, west London. Her stepfather, Nicholas Price, was jailed for life for her murder while her mother, Rosemary Koseda, was found guilty of manslaughter and detained in a high security psychiatric hospital. A private inquiry into her death found that the senior inspector from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children who had been allocated to her case had failed to investigate a complaint of child abuse made by a neighbour. He also lied about visiting the child.
