A demon cop lured Sarah Everard into his car after ‘arresting’ her for a fake COVID violation, shown in court today.
Footage shows the 33-year-old inadvertently standing on the sidewalk with Wayne Coozens before he abducted her.
A Met police officer took to the streets for a victim before seeing Sarah walking back from a friend’s home in Clapham.
After chasing the marketing executive, Couzens got out of his rental car and was seen on CCTV a few feet away from him.
What we know so far:
- Killer cop Wayne Coozens is facing a lifetime charge for the murder of Sarah Everard
- He used the police belt to strangle Sara after kidnapping and raping her
- Couzens lured her into his car by making a fake arrest
- Sarah’s family speaks of her suffering read statements with powerful victim impact
- Coozens was filmed lying during his arrest as to why he took Sarah?
The rapist cop, who was wearing his police belt in handcuffs, can be seen producing his warrant card after Sara claimed to have violated the Covid restrictions.
Moments later, while driving, a couple noticed that the Cougens had handcuffed Sarah – causing her to get stuck in the back of their car.
The terrified Sarah was then driven 80 miles from London to Kent at the start of a “long ordeal” that was to lead “harshly to her rape and murder”.
Prosecutor Tom Little QC said after the footage was shown to the court: “He must have realized his fate.”
Couzens burned her body in a plot of land they bought in 2019, which they described as “perfect for a day”.
Police believe he had died by 2.31am, five hours after being snatched from the road.
Couzens, who was known to wear a police belt with handcuffs while on duty, put his burnt remains in green rubble bags and dumped them in a pond in the woods.
He then consumed a hot chocolate with coconut milk and Bakewell tart from Costa just hours after the murder.
The next morning, the Couzens returned the rental car and threw Sarah’s phone into a river in Sandwich, Kent.
He also bought the petrol he used to burn Sarah’s body and then called his vet to make an appointment for the family dog about a “potential medication for separation anxiety.”
Sickly, Couzens also took his family to the woods where he dumped Sarah’s body four days after her murder.
They allowed their children to “play in relatively close proximity” to where their bodies were left in the pond.
Sarah’s body had to be identified by dental records a week later after it was found more than 50 miles away in Ashford, Kent.
She was wearing a necklace and a gold earring even after being badly burned.
Couzens later admitted that he strangled her using his police belt.
Prosecutor Tom Little QC said: “The disappearance of Sarah Everard on the evening of 3 March 2021 led to the most widely publicized missing person investigation in this country.
“What happened was widely summarized on social media as #shewasonlywalkinghome.
“It is true. Sarah Everard was only on her way home when she was dumped on the street by the defendant from her family, friends and co-workers on the evening of March 3, 2021.
“However, those five words do not begin to objectively or fully describe what happened to him and his body at the hands of the defendant in the hours and days following his abduction.
“While it is impossible to summarize what the defendant did to Sarah Everard in just five words, if it were to do so it would be appropriate to do so in the form of deception, kidnapping, rape, strangulation, fire.”
web of lies
Coozens spreads a web of lies after being arrested – meaning Sarah’s family is heartbroken and the police never find out the real reason why he snatched and strangled Sarah.
He was portrayed today as a sex maniac, despite portraying the image of a married father-of-two and even contacting escorts and using a Match.com dating profile.
Oddly, Couzens claimed he had “no choice” but to kidnap Sarah, a stranger to him, for a human trafficking gang.
At the time of Sarah’s murder he was in debt of around £29,000 with additional credit card debt.
Couzens previously claimed that he was unable to pay for a prostitute he met at a Holiday Inn in Folkestone, so he was ordered to find “another girl” otherwise his family would suffer.
He was repeatedly asked if he knew where Sarah was because his “family and friends were concerned about her”.
But Ill said: “If I could do something to get him back this minute, I would.
“I’ll do it again tomorrow if it means saving my family… these guys meant business.”
The father of two then suggested that the trio had killed Sarah – even though her body was found on land owned by her.
In fact, the Couzens had hatched a terrifying plot to travel to London and kidnap a woman.
On February 28, he had hired the car using his full name, address and two different mobile phones.
Minutes later, he bought a 600mm by 100mm roll of self-adhesive film from Amazon to use in the attack.
The night he took Sara, the cop was seen on CCTV buying a hairband, which he had used in horror.
As part of his grisly killing kit, Monster also purchased carpet protectors, tarpaulins and a cargo net on March 7.
And Couzens was seen buying two large bags of green rubble from B&Q on March 5 – the same day he called his job to say he was “suffering from stress” and unable to work.
Sarah disappeared on 3 March after walking home from a friend’s house in Clapham, south west London.
The court was told that she was “in good spirits” and spent about 14 minutes on the phone to her boyfriend.
Sara was seen alone on CCTV at 9.15 pm, then at 9.28 pm and was later caught on camera at 9.32 pm in a marked police car.
Chilling footage taken at 9.38 p.m. shows two figures standing near the white Vauxhall Crossland rented by Coozens.
It is being told that after some time the miscreants snatched him.
free to kill
Gun Cop Cousins, who joined the Met Police in 2018, was charged with kidnapping and murder when police stormed her home in Deal, Kent, more than a week after Sarah first disappeared.
The constable, working in the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command Unit, had finished a shift earlier on the morning of March 3 and was not on duty at the time of Sara’s disappearance.
Despite wiping her phone, the data on the device linked Cuzense to the hijacking and ultimately the area where Sarah was found.
While in custody, former mechanic Cousins was taken to hospital with two head injuries.
Questions are now mounting as to why the Cousins were still in force after a wave of indecent performance claims made against them.
Surprisingly, when he joined the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Security Unit of the Met in February 2020, Cousins was not given the increased scrutiny.
This was despite colleagues at the Civil Nuclear Constabulary, where he served before the Metropolitan Police, earning him the nickname of The Rapist.
Twelve police officers are being investigated by the Independent Police Conduct Office for gross misconduct in matters related to the case.
The watchdog is investigating whether the Met failed to investigate two allegations of indecent exposure related to Coozens just four days before Sarah was taken.
A separate investigation is also underway into claims that Kent Police failed to comply with charges of indecent exposure in Dover in 2015.
The Met released a statement today ahead of the hearing, saying they are “sick, outraged and devastated” by Coozen’s actions.
How the murder of Sarah Everard sparked a ‘tidal wave’ of sadness and fear about women’s safety
Sarah’s tragic death sparked global outrage and sparked a ‘tidal wave’ of mourning.
Women revealing their horror stories from social media platforms shouting words of ‘she was just walking home’.
Many reported how they were harassed on the road and on public transport – even one held a vigil for Sarah.
Tackling violence against women and girls prompted the Home Office to reopen a public consultation, which then received more than 160,000 responses.
Vigils were held across the country as angry Britons paid tribute to Sarah.
The campaign group Reclaim in the Streets was formed in the wake of Sarah’s death.
Jamie Klingler, one of the founders, said: “It’s like half the population’s tidal wave is saying: ‘This is your problem, you need to fix it and you need to fix it now – we’re going to fix it. No one is taking more’.”
Heavy cops arrested the protesters, which led to some parts of the violence being sabotaged.
A planned event to be held at Clapham Common in London was canceled due to the pandemic, but thousands still attended his honors.
Kate Middleton was among those who built near the temple where Sarah was last seen.
Sara’s death caused outrage across the country and calls for action to tackle violence against women.
Thousands of women shared stories on social media of how they were harassed on the road and on public transport.
In the wake of Sarah’s death, the campaign group Reclaim in the Streets was formed with a vigilante in Clapham Common, attended by Kate Middleton.
The agitation has continued in recent weeks following the murder of 28-year-old teacher Sabina Nessa in Kidbrook, south east London.
Sara’s family previously paid tribute to her “bright and beautiful daughter and sister”.
In a statement, he said: “Sarah was bright and beautiful – a wonderful daughter and sister.
“She was kind and considerate, caring and trustworthy. She always put others first and had the most amazing sense of humour.
“She was strong and majestic and a shining example to all of us.
“We are very proud of him and he has brought so much joy to our lives.”
Anyone can be affected stop the violence against them…
