Devastated friends pay tribute to ‘warm and loving’ teenager, 18, who was ‘murdered with her mum, 40, by her dad’ – The Sun

DEVASTATED pals have paid tribute to the "warm and loving" teenager allegedly murdered with her mum by her dad.

Nikoleta Zdun, 18, died with her mother, 40, at their Salisbury home on Monday.




Her dad, Marcin Zdun, has been charged, with the Tesco worker, 39, appearing via video link before Basingstoke Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Nikoleta was described as having a "massive heart" by her friends distraught at her "horrible" death.

Abigail Perry, 18, said: "She had a massive heart, she was a really warm and loving person.

"You would find it hard to find someone as caring as her, she was such a good friend.

"She loved seeing her friends and now we'll miss her so much.

"It won't be the same without her but we won't let her be forgotten, we're going to try to plan a memorial for her.

"Everything about it is horrible."

Lydia Hopkins, 17, was in the same travel and tourism class as Nikoleta at Wiltshire College, and was going to meet up with her for a picnic the day after her death.

HEARTBROKEN PALS

She said: "She looked like a model, she was very pretty.

"She was an extremely caring person and easy to get along with.

"Nikoleta was really into her fashion and her make-up, she would always look so good.

"It is all so, so sad, I'm really struggling to believe it.

"Her not being here is going to leave a big hole for lots of people, for sure."

A spokesman for Wiltshire College and University Centre, where she studied, said: “Our thoughts are with those close to Nikoleta at this incredibly sad time.

"She was a kind and thoughtful young woman with her whole life ahead of her.

"She had ambitions of working abroad and following her dreams. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her at the college.”

Her not being here is going to leave a big hole for lots of people, for sure.

Zdun, who has short dark hair and a beard, wore a grey jumper and tracksuit bottoms as he appeared via a video link for the six-minute hearing.

He spoke only to confirm his identity and pronunciation of his name and required a Polish translator to inform him of what was being said.District Judge Timothy Pattinson adjourned the case until Friday, when Zdun will make his first crown court appearance at Winchester Crown Court, Hants.

Police were called to quiet residential street Wessex Road around 2.45pm on Monday, with neighbours claiming they heard screams which grew "dramatically louder".

One neighbour claimed he saw Aneta seriously injured in her front garden screaming "where are my children?"

Locals Nick and Jan Maher quickly dashed to the house and retrieved the girls to keep them "safe" in their own home, ordering Dominos pizza for them and watching kids cartoons on Nickelodeon.

Aneta's colleagues have also paid tribute to the "warm, kind and caring" mother.

The 40-year-old worked as a carer for Salisbury-based Wessex Care, which supports elderly people, and was also a trained physiotherapist.

The directors of Wessex Care said: "Aneta was a well-loved and well-known member of the Wessex Care family who worked in our community team.

"Those of you who knew Aneta personally and professionally will know what a warm, kind and caring individual she was, she had cared immensely for many vulnerable people throughout her career as a physiotherapist and healthcare assistant."

Friends and upset members of their community have been placing flowers outside the house on a quiet residential road in the cathedral city.

A fundraising page has been set up by a relative of the Polish family to raise money for Aneta's and Nikoleta's bodies to be flown back to their homeland – and has so far raised more than £9,000.

Zdun will appear at Winchester Crown Court, Hants, tomorrow.
