The crown court heard today how Relowicz took Ms Squire, 21, to the Oak fields where he raped her before dumping her in the tidal River Hull. 

Ms Squire died, the court heard, from “sheer misfortune” by coming into contact with Relowicz. 

Ms Squire had came into contact with Relowicz, 26, in the early hours of February 1. 

Prosecutor Richard Wright QC told the jury: “Libby Squire died because it was her sheer misfortune, by a terrible twist of fate, to stray into the path of a man who was looking out for just this opportunity.”

Relowicz picked up Ms Squire in the university area of the two after she had stumbled around the area confused and upset. 

It is unclear whether she was alive when she was dumped into the river. 

Following her disappearance, police conducted widespread search for Ms Squire.
