QUESADA: KILLER THOUGHT VICTIM 'WAS PAEDOPHILE'

WALTHAMSTOW A killer who stabbed a pensioner to death for asking about his baby daughter's welfare had believed his victim was a paedophile, the Old Bailey heard today (Weds). Matthew Quesada, 26, is said to have suffered from paranoid delusions when he carried out the savage attack at the east London diner. He is accused of murdering Alan Smith, 63, as he ate with his family after the retired bus driver dared to ask if Quesada's crying daughter was all right. Giving evidence at his trial, consultant forensic psychiatrist Dr Samrat Sengupta said Quesada had claimed he 'felt that the victim was a paedophile and his daughter was at risk.' He said the killer, who is currently being held at maximum-security hospital Broadmoor, had only made plans to flee the country because he thought the girl was safe after leaving her with his partner.
