After Wayne Couzens’ conviction for murder, Professor of Criminology David Wilson was asked by The Sun Online to draft the culprit’s profile given his experience. The teacher’s conclusions are very worrying as he is certain there are other victims of Couzens out there.

The Professor from Birmingham City University said Couzens’ actions were “very controlled and practised.

“They don’t suggest to me the behaviours of someone who is simply demonstrating his first offence.

“The behaviour is clearly part of his sexual fantasies.

“They don’t come all at once but in dribs and drabs.

“Everything about what happened on that night suggests to me that Couzens will have offended before.

“In the weeks leading up to the abduction and the weeks prior to the murder he was found indecently exposing himself.

“One of the biggest learning points that I keep saying: indecent exposure is a serious offence that is an indicator of more serious offences.

“He also had a nickname, ‘The Rapist’.

“Colleagues obviously understood something wasn’t right about Couzens.

“All of this suggests to me that Couzens will have offended before.”

Incidentally, the police are now looking into other unsolved cases to see if a connection exists according to David Wilson.

“We continue to make enquiries to establish whether he has been involved in other criminal offences,” confirmed a spokesperson from the Met police.

“As these investigations are ongoing we are unable to go into further detail although, at this time, we have not identified anything that is of the same level of seriousness as the crimes he has been sentenced for.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about any criminality they believe Couzens was involved in.”

Twelve police officers are already being investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct for gross misconduct over matters relating to the case.

Mr Couzens was not given enhanced vetting when he joined the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Unit in February 2020 and also did not serve his full two years on probation in September 2018.
