On Friday, a British police officer pleaded guilty to the murder of a woman whose disappearance as she walked to her London home sparked outrage and a national debate about women’s safety.

Wayne Couzens, 48, who worked in the Metropolitan Police’s elite discreet protection unit, had previously admitted abducting Sarah Everard. He pleaded guilty, on Friday to her murder through a video link at London’s Old Bailey court.

This 33-year-old woman by the name Everard, a  marketing executive, went missing while walking in Clapham, south London, during the evening of March 3.

The disappearance of Everard brought about vigils and protests and urged the government to promise enhanced police patrols at night, as well as funding to make the streets safer for women.
