Mother of Child Sexual Abuse Victim Arrested

Tuesday, an OSBI agent filed an affidavit for one count of enabling child sexual abuse against the mother of a young sexual assault victim from Kingfisher County. The girl had been molested by her 35-year-old uncle, Matthew Mallory, since age 9 at his home near Okarche where all three lived. When authorities began investigating their relationship more than a year ago when the girl was 14, Mallory and the girl ran to Texas. The two were found and brought back to Kingfisher County where Mallory faced multiple felony charges. He recently pled to four consecutive life sentences.

When interviewed early in the investigation by an OSBI agent, the victim’s mother, Angela Mellissa Tuszynski (d.o.b. 11/29/1979), described the relationship between her daughter and Mallory as more like husband and wife rather than uncle and niece. She further stated that her daughter and Mallory slept in the same bedroom while she slept on the couch in the living room. Tuszynski also knew that Mallory was a lifetime registered sex offender and spent time in prison for sexually abusing a young female.

Wednesday evening, Canadian County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Tuszynski on the felony warrant. She was transferred to the Kingfisher County jail to answer to the child sexual abuse charge.
