    Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old marketing executive, left a friend’s home in the Clapham neighborhood of London at 9 p.m. on March 3 2021. She never arrived at her Brixton home, some 50 minutes walk away. It was later discovered she had been kidnapped, raped and murdered by an off duty Metropolitan Police officer, Wayne Couzens, who, after his arrest in June, in July 2021 pleaded guilty to all three offences, and was imprisoned for life without parole.
