Wayne Couzens is reportedly not eating any of his prison food and is on the suicide watchlist.

The former Metropolitan Police officer who murdered Sarah Everard is said to have stopped eating in prison after being ‘plunged into a depression,’ as reported by The Sun.

It is understood that he is being watched by prison officers as there are concerns he “might take the easy way out”.

Couzens, 48, confessed the horrific murder of Sarah at the Old Bailey on July 9.

This came a month after he pleaded guilty to kidnapping and raping the 33-year-old marketing executive after he confronted her as she walked home from a friend’s through Clapham, in South London.

Couzens could get a whole life sentence when he next appears in court in September.

A source told The Sun: “After pleading guilty, Couzens basically didn’t touch any food for days.

“He’s still not eating properly, barely anything at all.

“It’s clear the enormity of his crimes have finally begun to register. But he’s being watched like a hawk in case he tries to take the easy way out.”

The disgraced police officer has been sacked from the Met Police.

Sarah disappeared shortly after leaving a friend’s house in Clapham on the evening of March 3.

She was reported missing by her boyfriend the next day after no one had been able to contact her and she had failed to turn up to work.

Sarah’s body was discovered in woodland close to an abandoned leisure centre in Ashford, Kent.

Couzens was arrested at his home in Deal, Kent, on March 9.

The case shocked the country and many held vigils in remembrance of Sarah around London with the echoing sentiments that women were not safe walking around the capital.

In court, Couzens claimed he had financial difficulties and he and his family were being threatened by a gang of Eastern Europeans.

He said that he had underpaid a prostitute – even going into elaborate detail about the hotels where they usually met – and that the gang with links to this prostitute told him that, as a consequence, he had to deliver them “another girl”.

Couzens then claimed he had kidnapped Sarah, driven to Kent and handed her to three Eastern European men in a lay-by.

Evidence was produced by police who quickly dismissed his stories as a bunch of lies.
