Gonna be hard to prove unless there were eye witnesses. Even then, druggies don't make relevant testimony.

Police continue their investigation at 27 Rowley Street, the home of William Lewek.

A Rochester psychiatrist who allegedly buried a dead man in his backyard is being sued by the mother of the deceased.

Kym Straton, the mother of Matthew Straton, sued Dr. William Lewek in late May, court records show.

May 22: William Lewek must go to trial

More: Questions remain for Straton family

The lawsuit alleges that Lewek provided illegal drugs to Straton, caused his death at Lewek's city home, then buried Straton's body. Lewek is now facing criminal charges of tampering with evidence allegedly hiding Straton's corpse beneath dirt, grass and lawnchairs in Lewek's backyard and possession of crack cocaine.

Am i the only one who is baffled by why this dirtball ''docter''( yeah right)
is even our free hurt someone else?
Who has a dead body found in their backyard and doesn't go to jail?
Not to mention a ''docter'' with crack cocaine in his posession - who counsels addicts?!!!!!!
What is with the RPD, attorney general, etc...
No justice for this young man or his family.
This kid may have had troubles, but didnt deserve what this createn did to him.
If Joe or Jane regular citizen had a dead body in our backyard & drug possesion - we'd be locked up!!!
Who is protecting this POS - and why?

This young man - no matter what his job, lifestyle, etc... was still somebodys brother, son, friend, and didnt deserve to be hidden under garbage in this ''doctor's'' backyard.
You are scum to make jokes about the death of somebody's loved one.
What comes out of your mouth can revisit you as karma.
Have you met?

Since the Doctor was not charged with Matthew's murder, I suspect this was a crack smoke house when Matthew overdosed. The Doctor tried to literally cover up to avoid exposure. Now the very thing the Doctor feared is coming true. Enabling drugs will come back on you. Play with the devil and you get burned. I've seen this from Family and Friends of murdered Children.

Agree: How to prove that Matthew didn't use his own drugs to overdose? The doctor won't admit to that self-incrimination. Matthew wasn't a client. Doctor Demento"s behavior was reprehensible, but unfortunately not liable. The public will see the sordid details now. Yuck!

I like how all the white assume cause he was a doctor that he couldn't have killed someone and it must have been that he just overdosed and the good white doctor was only hiding the body and it was anything more the great white RPD would be right on the case with murder charges against him.
WHAT A JOKE.
More likely it is a lack of any evidence to support murder. Do you think just maybe that is it?

Sounds like you know first hand\mouth about this poor kids private life.
Maybe they need to investigate you!
Nobody deserves to be thrown out like garbage in someboby's backyard.
I hope the family can find justice and closure.

I appreciate your post. I don't know why "blame the victim" and casting dispersions on the family make any kind of civility to topix posters. The family cared for Matthew to search for him and put up posters. The entire happening is yet another results of addition that makes human reason and judgments SICK.

Agree, putting oneself into that environment and associating with drug people puts one at RISK. We have control and choice. Unfortunately, drugs destroy a persons good judgment and right reasoning to make helpful choices for themselves and others. THAT IS THE DANGER.

Rhonda, not everything has to be RACIALLY CORRECT or you're bitching about it. Your insisting on "racial correctness" is BORING and warps your view of reality.

Kym Straton is a money-hungry crack-addicted prostitute. Her drug addict son Matthew was a 30-year-old gay prostitute, servicing Dr. Lewek and getting drugs in return. There's no innocent victim here.

Exactly. I hope he counter sues her for attorney's fees, and for being the ugliest Mom in Rochester. They should put a paper bag over her head in court, so the news cameras don't crack.

The kid is a crackhead, he's a medical doctor and respected psychiatrist (that handled addiction issues).

He will win. She doesn't stand a chance (based on her son's lifestyle). Hope her attorney did not take this on contingency. He'll walk away with nothing.

Dr Lewek is likely not very concerned about the result.

I believe the NY State Health Dept pulled his medical license a few months ago.

Is he still listed on staff at Strong Hospital?

Mom is a bit rough around the edges. Word on the street was the kid and the dr. were an item.
