The former gun cop is being watched 24/7 by prison officers over fears he “might take the easy way out”.

Couzens, who this month admitted murdering Sarah, 33, could get a whole life sentence when he next appears in court in September.

Last night, a source said: “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.”

Hulking Couzens, from Deal, Kent, was sacked from the Met Police last week.

He abducted, raped and killed marketing exec Sarah, who was walking home from a friend’s house in Clapham, South London, in March.

The horrific case shocked Britain, with thousands holding vigils in the days after Sarah’s body was found.

Couzens had flashed fast food workers just days before.

The Met now faces a probe by the Independent Office for Police Conduct over an alleged failure to investigate two reports of indecent exposure against him.

Kent Police is also being investigated by the IOPC over its response to an earlier allegation of indecent exposure in 2015.
