Tomasz Dembler, 39, was found dead in a shallow grave in N. Yorkshire last April Trial heard he suffered multiple serious injuries including a broken back and jawFive fellow Polish nationals on trial at Teesside Crown Court accused of murder 

A father-of-one who was found buried in a shallow grave was likely beaten to death after a post mortem found he had suffered devastating injuries including a broken back, a court has heard.

The remains of Tomasz Dembler were found near Flatts Lane Country Park in Normanby, North Yorkshire, on April 12 last year.

Mr Dembler, 39, was also found with a broken upper jaw, 15 fractured ribs, cuts to his lips and mouth and severe bruising to his head, back and chest.

The post mortem found that it is likely he had been repeatedly kicked and stamped on and that the injuries to his neck may have been caused by pressure from his attacker’s arm.

On Monday, Teesside Crown Court heard that a Home Office pathologist’s report found that Mr Dembler’s injuries would likely have impaired the use of his lower body and perhaps ‘impaired his ability to breathe’.

The report found hypostasis had set in before Mr Dembler was buried, suggesting he was already dead, and also found that his hands were probably cut off after he had died.

Five fellow Polish nationals – four men and one woman – are on trial at Teesside Crown Court accused of Mr Dembler’s murder.

The remains of Mr Dembler, 39, were found near Flatts Lane Country Park in Normanby, North Yorkshire, on April 12 last year and prosecutors say his killers left him there in a shallow grave

Zbigniew Pawlowski, 41, of Newport, Middlesbrough; Rafal Chmielewski, 37, of Grangetown; Tomasz Reczycki, 37, of Grove Hill, Middlesbrough; Adam Czerwinski, 45, of North Ormesby; and Monika Solerska, 37, of Grangetown, all deny murder.

The prosecution say that Tomasz was killed in the hours after 3.35am on Sunday March 21 – sometime following a phone call from a friend he answered, asking him for a lift.

The father – who was separated from his partner – told his friend that he was at a party in Middlesbrough, and couldn’t help her.

But Peter Makepeace QC, told the court that Mr Dembler died that morning and was buried in a shallow grave near Flatts Lane Country Park in Normanby where he said it was ‘a miracle’ he was found.

The prosecution played CCTV footage showing six separate journeys that some of the accused made between Mr Dembler’s house on Edward Street and Flatts Lane which they say took place after he had been killed.

The first journeys, Mr Makepeace told the jury, were reconnaissance trips to see where they could dispose of the body.

Mr Dembler’s body was found weeks later on April 12, by two girls who were having a makeshift picnic in the woods. They saw his toes in the ground and called the police.

On Monday afternoon, the court heard that some of the accused are blaming each other.

Mr Makepeace told the jury that Chmielewski will claim that he saw Zbigniew Pawlowski beat Mr Dembler to death and that Pawlowski threatened him with a gun to his head, when he wanted to call an ambulance.

Chmielewski claims, Mr Makepeace continued, that Pawlowski cut off Mr Dembler’s hands and put them into a suitcase.

The prosecution say that Chmielewski’s girlfriend, Monika Solerska- the only women to be accused – claims she was upstairs in Edward Street on the night of the alleged party, and that she was unaware of anything that happened.

Solerska – who the prosecution say is captured on CCTV driving her Mercedes up Ormesby Bank to the burial site on Sunday March 21, claims that the journey was a social one.

Jurors heard Mr Dembler had lived in the UK for some years and had been reported as missing by friends and relatives before his body was found. Pictured: Police on scene in April last year

The prosecution told a silent court that Adam Czerwinski last saw Mr Dembler in his downstairs bedroom, in the small terraced house that he shared with him and others, and that Mr Dembler was with Pawlowski.

Like Chmielewski, the prosecution say that Tomasz Reczycki will claim he saw Pawlowski beat up Mr Dembler and that he was too scared to intervene.

The court heard that Pawlowski’s defence will say that he left Edward Street at 11pm that night and knew nothing of a murder.

Tomasz Dembler moved to the UK 20 years ago from Poland. His life took a downward spiral after he split up from the mother of his child, and he moved to Middlesbrough – taking a room in Adam Czerwinski’s rented terraced home – where the prosecution say he was murdered.

Peter Makepeace told the court that Tomasz had grown apart from his family, who found his drinking and illicit drug use hard to accept. His last message to his mother in Poland, read ‘leave me alone’.

The trial continues.
