Laura Jeanne Lesinski
South Torrance High School '81
December 14, 1962 - March 27, 1980
Laura lived nine miles to the south of Leuzinger, but her death along with Leuzinger's Brenda Maloney three weeks later generated a climate of fear on both campuses and in the South Bay Community. Laura's murder still remains an unsolved mystery. The Torrance Police Department is still looking for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of her killer.
A Memorial for Laura is posted here so that family, friends, classmates and teachers of this popular
South High School junior are aware that The Olympians of Leuzinger High School have not forgotten either
Brenda Maloney or Laura Lesinski.
