  • Wayne Couzens was snared by detectives after the blood of Sarah Everard was found in the seats and boot of his car.

    Officers also found semen in the Seat, leading police to deduce that the convicted killer raped the 33-year-old in the car.

    Couzens had driven from his home in Kent to Londen on the night of March 3 to carry out his sadistic crimes.

    He hired a Vauxhall Crossland from a rental garage after plotting for over a month, because the car looked similar to an undercover police car.

    But he was exposed by CCTV after bus camera footage caught him stopping Ms Everard while the officer carried out a fake arrest for an apparent breach of Covid rules.

    The footage shows him standing feet away from Ms Everard on the side of a Clapham street moments before her disappearance.

    The clip shows Couzens flashing his warrant badge before handcuffing and abducting the advertising executive near her home.

    Couzens then drove her 50 miles to Dover in the rental car before he swapped it for his own Seat.

    Couzens took her to a rural area and raped her, before later being seen buying Lucozade and other drinks from BP station with her body in boot, after she was believed to have been murdered.

    Distressing details of the timeline suggest Ms Everard could have been alive for more than four hours.

    She was snatched off the street by 9.30pm and when the killer pulled into the garage at 2.30am, Sarah is thought to have been in his boot, already dead.

    Couzens later was seen switching back the cars as he took the Vauxhall back to Enterprise.

    He then drove in his own Seat to Sandwich where he dumped Sarah’s phone before buying petrol to burn her body.

    She was found days later and had to be identified by dental records, but was still wearing a necklace and a gold earring.

    Couzens was arrested on March 9 after detectives traced the hire car back to his address.

    They seized his Seat where officers discovered a broken fragment of Ms Everard’s sim card and a blood stain which matched her DNA.

    Quizzed by police after his arrest, Couzens lied that he had been ‘leant onby an Eastern European gang who threatened to harm his family if he did not agree to pick up a woman and hand her over to the occupants of a van near Maidstone.

    Taken to Wandsworth Police Station, he repeatedly tried to self-harm by banging his head on a sink and running into a wall, and was put under constant watch before appearing in court.

    He later ditched his story and pleaded guilty to kidnap, rape and murder.

    Vandag, he was jailed for life with no chance of parole after he ‘misused’ sy ‘amp en gesag’ as a Met officer.

    Lord Justice Fulford het aan Couzens gesê hy is 'n 'kronkelende'’ en 'selfbejammering'’ moordenaar wat staatgemaak het op sy posisie en kennis van Covid-19-toesluitwette om een ​​van die mees skokkende misdade in die onlangse geskiedenis uit te voer.

    Wayne Couzens het gestaan, maar kon nie na die regter of Sarah Everard se gesin kyk nie, omdat hy 'n lewenslange vonnis opgelê is in die Old Bailey – die eerste wat ooit aan 'n polisiebeampte gegee is

    Sarah se familie het gehuil en 'n laaste dapper verklaring afgelê om dit aan Couzens te vertel, 48, 'Die wêreld is 'n veiliger plek sonder dat jy daarin is’ toe hy die eerste polisiebeampte in die Britse geskiedenis geword het wat 'n lewenslange vonnis opgelê het. Die gesin vee hul trane af en staan ​​hom tegemoet terwyl hy verneem dat hy in die tronk sou sterf en na die selle geneem is.

    Beskuldig hom daarvan dat hy 'erodeer'’ openbare vertroue in die polisie en om vroue meer bang te maak om deur die strate te loop, het die regter gesê: 'Sarah Everard was 'n heeltemal onberispelike slagoffer van 'n groteske reeks oortredings', toevoeging: 'Sy het eenvoudig huis toe gestap'.

    Die regter het die moordenaar laat staan ​​en voor die hof gestaan – maar hy hou sy kop gebuig – terwyl hy 'n hele lewensduur oorhandig het wat vir ongeveer gereserveer was 70 van die gevaarlikste misdadigers van Brittanje, waaronder reeksmoordenaars en terroriste.

    Hy het gesê: 'Wayne Couzens, jy ontvoer, verkrag en vermoor Sarah Everard, lankal 'n gewelddadige seksuele aanranding beplan het op 'n slagoffer wat nog nie gekies is nie en wat u van plan was om in u toesig te dwing.

    'U het die lewens van Sarah Everard se familie en vriende onherroeplik beskadig – jy het die vertroue wat die publiek geregtig is op die polisiemagte van Engeland en Wallis geknou.

    'Ek het geen bewyse van ware berou van u kant gesien nie, in teenstelling met duidelike selfbejammering en pogings van u om die regte gevolge van wat u gedoen het te vermy of tot 'n minimum te beperk'.

    Buite die Old Bailey het sy voormalige baas Cressida Dick geweier om te bedank, maar het toegegee dat die nou afgedankte rekenaar 'skande oor die Met gebring het'’ en die 'kosbare vertrouensband' beskadig’ tussen die publiek en die polisie.

    Sy het gese: 'Sarah se ontvoering, verkragting en moord was een van die verskriklikste gebeurtenisse in die 190-jarige geskiedenis van die Metropolitaanse Polisiediens.

    'Daar is geen woorde wat die woede en hartseer wat ons voel oor wat met Sarah gebeur het, volledig kan beskryf nie. Ek is so jammer', toevoeging: 'Ek praat eerlik as 'n organisasie, ons is geskok. Ek weet absoluut dat daar diegene is wat voel dat hul vertroue in ons geskud word '.
