    Detailed Case Timeline Part 1

    Charged with Kidnap and Murder: Wayne Couzens, 48 (dob 20/12/1972) [WC]





    28 Feb 2021, Sunday
    – WC is alleged to have indecently exposed himself to female staff at a McDonalds in South London. The incident is said to have been captured on CCTV. Staff reported it to police that night. 'Had he been arrested he would have had his firearm licence revoked and been suspended from duty', according to a former Met DCI. (SOURCE the Sun). “It is understood that [two] officers had carried out a number plate check on a vehicle after the offence was reported online and obtained the name of its owner. But they had yet to carry out an interview.” “WC was not identified as a suspect in the flashing incident until he was linked to it by homicide detectives after they had made him the key suspect in Sarah’s disappearance and started investigating his background.” (SOURCE Standard). On 13th March it’s reported that there may have been TWO such incidents – “The Met said: "On 28 February the Met created a crime report in relation to two separate indecent exposure incidents at a fast food restaurant in south London. It would be inappropriate to comment further given the IOPC investigation." Eyewitnesses at the burger bar in South London took details of the vehicle allegedly used by a man who flashed at staff before running off. Cops were given CCTV from the incident by staff along with a description and registration of the car being driven by the suspect, a source said today. (SOURCE Irish Sun)


    2 Mar 2021, Tuesday 7pm
    – WC (the accused) began a 12 hour shift, before going on leave. He was due back at work on March 8th. (SOURCE Yahoo news)


    3 Mar 2021, Wednesday:-


    8:00pm – Note - the reliability of this entry is called into doubt with information received at WC's first court appearance on 13th March - WC finished his shift at US Embassy, Nine Elms. “It is understood PC Couzens worked a 2pm to 8pm relief shift at the US Embassy in Nine Elms, south-west London, on the day of Sarah’s disappearance. He was off-duty during the time she was last seen.” (SOURCE Metro)

    9:00pm – Sarah left her friend’s house at Leathwaite Road, Clapham to walk the 2.5 mile distance to her home in Tulse Hill/Brixton.

    9:14pm (approx. – calculated from being a 14 minute call) Sarah called her partner JL on her journey and arranged to meet him the following day.

    9:15pm – Sarah was captured on CCTV walking alone (SOURCE Yahoo)

    9:28pm – Sarah ended her call with JL. “the court heard there has been no further activity on her mobile phone since then, adding that the phone has not yet been recovered. It is not clear whether the phone had been switched off or run out of battery." (SOURCE Yahoo news)

    9:28pm – Sarah is spotted on doorbell camera footage on A205 Poynders Road. (SOURCE Yahoo news, following first court appearance. Previously this was thought to have been at 9:30pm) ) It is not publicly known what side of the road Sarah was walking on but locals have opined that it was probably most natural for her to be walking on the north pavement / side of the road (that is the left hand side if you are walking in the direction she was walking) if she had walked on the A205 through Clapham Common, where there is no pavement along parts of the south side. Friends widely report in appeals that Sarah’s last phone signal was located close to Clarence Avenue. (SOURCE missing appeals and several local WS members)

    9:32pm – Sarah was “caught on the camera of a marked police car" (SOURCE Yahoo news)

    9:35pm a bus camera captured two figures on Poynders Road and a white Vauxhall Astra with its hazard lights flashing. A second bus camera captured the same car with both front doors open. The registration of the vehicle – confirmed to be a car hired in Dover – was captured and tracked by police as it left London towards Kent (SOURCE Yahoo news)


    4 Mar 2021, Thursday, 8:00pm (approx) Sarah is reported missing by a friend after failing to show up to the arranged meeting with her partner. (SOURCE Times paywalled article and Skynews; link to post)

    "As you are aware, a man has been arrested on suspicion of Sarah’s murder. This evening detectives and search teams investigating Sarah’s disappearance have found, very sadly, what appears to be human remains. The discovery was made in an area of woodland in Ashford in Kent. As you can imagine at this early stage we are not able to confirm any identity and indeed that may take us some considerable time. Specialist officers have been with Sarah’s family to update them on the investigation and to continue to give them the best support we possibly can.

    The news today that it was a Metropolitan Police Officer who was arrested on suspicion of Sarah’s murder has sent shockwaves and anger through the public and through the Met. I speak on behalf of all my colleagues when I say that we are utterly appalled at this dreadful, dreadful news. Our job is to patrol the streets and to protect people.

    The investigation is large, it’s very fast moving, extremely determined. We have had and continue to have hundreds of officers and staff working around the clock. Sarah’s disappearance in these awful and wicked circumstances I know are every family’s worst nightmare. Londoners will want to know that it is thankfully incredibly rare for a woman to be abducted from our streets but I completely understand that despite that women in London and the wider public perhaps those particularly in the area where Sarah went missing, will be worried and may be feeling scared. You should expect to see continued increased police patrols in the area as well of course as continued large scale investigative activity. Please do report any concerns you may have, whatever they may be, to us. We have been so impressed and very thankful for the public’s support for the investigation in so many different ways, but in particular for sharing our appeals for information. And we are deeply grateful to all those many, many people who came forward with information that has assisted us. My thoughts tonight are with Sarah, her family and her loved ones. "

    The Attorney General confirms the requirement not to publish material which could jeopardise a fair trial.

    Following the disappearance of Sarah Everard on the evening of 3 March, a police officer has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

    The Attorney General Rt. Hon Michael Ellis QC MP wishes to amplify the importance of the requirement not to publish any material that could create a substantial risk that the course of justice in these proceedings could be seriously impeded or prejudiced. This includes publishing information online. Publishing this information could amount to contempt of court and could affect the fairness of any future trial.

    In particular, the Attorney General draws attention to the requirement not to publish material that asserts or assumes the guilt of anyone who has been arrested. That is an issue to be determined by the jury if in due course there is a trial. The Attorney General also wishes to remind journalists and members of the public that it can amount to contempt of court to publish information relating to untested and unconnected allegations against the suspect, and matters adverse to his character, the admissibility of which a Judge in due course may need to determine.

    Editors, publishers and social media users should take legal advice to ensure they are in a position to fully comply with the obligations to which they are subject under the Contempt of Court Act 1981.

    The Attorney General’s Office is monitoring the coverage of this investigation.

    "You will appear there for your first appearance on the 16th of March. I don't have the power to consider the question of bail. That will be considered should you wish to make an application to the court on the 16th of March.

It saw him equipped with a Heckler & Koch G36 rifle as he accompanied nuclear material being transported around the country by road, rail or sea.

The woodland is next to an abandoned leisure complex. (SOURCE MyLondon). The Commissioner's announcement can be watched at ITV's YouTube channel here and the full text is as follows:

    "As you are aware, a man has been arrested on suspicion of Sarah’s murder. This evening detectives and search teams investigating Sarah’s disappearance have found, very sadly, what appears to be human remains. The discovery was made in an area of woodland in Ashford in Kent. As you can imagine at this early stage we are not able to confirm any identity and indeed that may take us some considerable time. Specialist officers have been with Sarah’s family to update them on the investigation and to continue to give them the best support we possibly can.

    The news today that it was a Metropolitan Police Officer who was arrested on suspicion of Sarah’s murder has sent shockwaves and anger through the public and through the Met. I speak on behalf of all my colleagues when I say that we are utterly appalled at this dreadful, dreadful news. Our job is to patrol the streets and to protect people.

    The investigation is large, it’s very fast moving, extremely determined. We have had and continue to have hundreds of officers and staff working around the clock. Sarah’s disappearance in these awful and wicked circumstances I know are every family’s worst nightmare. Londoners will want to know that it is thankfully incredibly rare for a woman to be abducted from our streets but I completely understand that despite that women in London and the wider public perhaps those particularly in the area where Sarah went missing, will be worried and may be feeling scared. You should expect to see continued increased police patrols in the area as well of course as continued large scale investigative activity. Please do report any concerns you may have, whatever they may be, to us. We have been so impressed and very thankful for the public’s support for the investigation in so many different ways, but in particular for sharing our appeals for information. And we are deeply grateful to all those many, many people who came forward with information that has assisted us. My thoughts tonight are with Sarah, her family and her loved ones. "

    “He will appear at Westminster magistrates' court tomorrow (13 March) for his first hearing.

    “The function of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges to a court to consider.

    10:44pm

    The Attorney General confirms the requirement not to publish material which could jeopardise a fair trial.

    Following the disappearance of Sarah Everard on the evening of 3 March, a police officer has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

    The Attorney General Rt. Hon Michael Ellis QC MP wishes to amplify the importance of the requirement not to publish any material that could create a substantial risk that the course of justice in these proceedings could be seriously impeded or prejudiced. This includes publishing information online. Publishing this information could amount to contempt of court and could affect the fairness of any future trial.

    In particular, the Attorney General draws attention to the requirement not to publish material that asserts or assumes the guilt of anyone who has been arrested. That is an issue to be determined by the jury if in due course there is a trial. The Attorney General also wishes to remind journalists and members of the public that it can amount to contempt of court to publish information relating to untested and unconnected allegations against the suspect, and matters adverse to his character, the admissibility of which a Judge in due course may need to determine.

    Editors, publishers and social media users should take legal advice to ensure they are in a position to fully comply with the obligations to which they are subject under the Contempt of Court Act 1981.

    The Attorney General’s Office is monitoring the coverage of this investigation.

    Chief Magistrate Paul Goldspring said: "Mr Couzens, I am sending your case to the crown court sitting at the Central Criminal Court, what you might know as the Old Bailey.

    "You will appear there for your first appearance on the 16th of March. I don't have the power to consider the question of bail. That will be considered should you wish to make an application to the court on the 16th of March.

    "You are therefore remanded in custody until that date, both charges having been sent to the crown court." (SOURCE Irish Sun)

    I noticed the case was listed for mention at the old Bailey today - under contempt of court. He’s obviously used this opportunity to indicate he wants to plead. Probably the only decent thing he has done.

    Last night it was reported that 26 Met Police colleagues of Couzens have been convicted of sex crimes, including rape and possessing indecent images of children, since 2016.

    Two of the officers were jailed in April, a month after Sarah Everard was raped and murdered by Couzens in Kent.

    Additionally, five Met officers carried out sex attacks while on duty since 2010 and one was recruited last year despite a conviction for indecent exposure.

    Sarah Everard killer Wayne Couzens was Commons guard and paid up to £10,000 MONTHS after arrest | Daily Mail Online
