London police are investigating whether Sarah Everard’s killer is involved in two cases of exhibitionism

UK authorities are investigating whether Wayne Couzens, the policeman sentenced to life imprisonment for the rape and murder of Sarah Everard, may be behind another string of crimes after his vehicle was found to be involved in a series of exhibitionism charges.

His vehicle is believed to have been seen for indecent behavior on two occasions, one of which was 72 hours before Everard was kidnapped, raped and strangled on March 3 under the guise of a routine check-up.

London Metropolitan Police spokesman Nick Ephgrave said the investigation into this episode, which took place 72 hours before the murder in the south of the UK capital, was “underway” at the time of the crime.

Although Couzens was not officially named as a suspect in this latest action, an inspection by the Vehicle and Driver Licensing Agency (DVLA) would have revealed that he is the owner of the vehicle described on the occasion.

At the same time, Ephgrave also refused to come to assess whether Couzens’ car would have been identified in another exhibitionism case in Kent, southeast England in 2015, and recalled that police in that county had never considered he was a suspect Crime.

However, he has asked both the general public and any civil servant to go to the police if they have more information about another crime that Couzens may have committed “either as a civil servant or a civilian”.

Ephgrave has pointed out that the involvement of a London police officer in what happened was “one of the darkest days” in the institution’s nearly 200 years of existence. “We are deeply sorry” and “of course we know the impact this has on Londoners’ confidence,” he admitted.

Everard disappeared when he returned home on March 3 after visiting friends in the Clapham neighborhood in south London. His body was found a week later in a wooded area in Kent in the southwest of the country, where the agent, who was part of the elite parliamentary and diplomatic corps, was arrested.

Everard’s murder sparked a spate of protests on the streets of Britain against gender-based violence and the insecurity of women on the streets. Indeed, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said last week that the British capital was suffering an “epidemic of violence against women”.
