Straton family attends Lewek's hearing

Kym Straton is the mother of Matt Straton, whose body was found Thursday on Rowley Street

Rochester, N.Y.   A heartbroken mother, Kym Straton, was inside the courtroom when Doctor William Lewek was arraigned Friday.

She talked to 13WHAM news outside the courtroom about how she is coping.

A little sickened, very happy that this part of my nightmare is over at least we know where Matt to the next nightmare of finding out what happened to him, Kym said.

Thursday morning, Rochester Police recovered Kyms son Matthew Stratons body in Leweks backyard on Rowley St. in Rochester. Straton was reported missing in late October.  Lewek faces charges of drug possession and tampering with evidence.


Kym says her son hurt his back a few years ago, and became addicted to pain killers, but told 13WHAM she has never heard of Lewek.

Matt was such a great kid, he always had a smile on his face, Kym said. A great sense of humor and a big heart.

She told 13WHAM she will be at all of Leweks court hearings in the future.

There's nothing like a mother's scorn and I will be at every one of them.
