Libby Squire Wiki – Raped Murder
Libby Squire was a student in Hull when she was allegedly raped and killed by a stranger
A butcher accused of raping and murdering a student was regularly exposed to women on the street and was rewarded for “sexually motivated” thefts in his car.
Pawel Relowicz, 26, said that in the months before Libby Squire’s disappearance, he committed a series of horrific sex crimes in Hull’s student district.
The father of two is accused of rape and murder of a 21-year-old boy who allegedly targeted drunk and lonely near the university house on the night of January 31, 2019.
He denies the allegations.
On Wednesday, a jury at the Sheffield Crown Court was told that the defendant was convicted of nine sexually motivated offenses committed between July 2017 and the end of January 2019, days before Miss Squire’s disappearance.
His crimes included voyeurism, ugly public morality, and theft in which women stole underwear and sex toys.
On January 20, 2019, just 11 days before the night of the alleged murder, she exposed herself to a woman on the street where Ms. Squire’s student house was located.
Richard Wright QC, in charge of the prosecution, said that Mr. Relowicz’s crime was “frequent” and that Hull focused on the student area.
The court was told she was “not forgotten” when young women challenged her or saw her committing their sexual crimes.
The police would later find a student dormitory book at his home in Hull, as well as a bag full of “trophies” that Mr. Relowicz stole during the theft in the trunk of his car.
Mr. Wright said the accused was “in a state of increased sexual arousal that night” and “sneaked” around the neighborhood in search of a vulnerable girl to hunt.
“Libby got the opportunity he sought in Squire and went further than he had done before, drove him away, raped him and killed him,” he told the court.
Mr. Relowicz allegedly put or forced his undergraduate student into his car before killing him in an act of sexual violence in a field and throwing his body into an icy river.
The defendant was browsing internet pornography within an hour, and it turned out that that night CCTV caught him masturbating on the street, jurors were told.
The defendant told the police that he was behaving like a “good Samaritan” when he picked up Ms. Squire, and left her car unharmed, but claimed to have made sexual advances to friends that the student refused.
Mr. Wright said that a swab taken from Ms. Squire’s body had sperm cells with a DNA profile with a one-in-a-billion-chance match to the accused.
