CCTV footage shows the tragic moment Libby Squire walked away from her front door and into the path of a butcher accused of raping and murdering her.
Libby, 21, can be seen in the clip walking from "the safety of her front door" shortly before Pawel Relowicz, 26, allegedly drove her to a remote playing field where she was raped and then dumped in the River Hull.
Polish butcher Relowicz is said to have identified Libby as a "target", and later "darted" across the road to "intercept her", Sheffield Crown Court heard.
Jurors were previously told how on the night she vanished, Libby had been drinking with friends and appeared "in good spirits" before the group headed to a nightclub in Hull at around 11pm.
CCTV shown to the court showed Libby stumbling with her pals as they walked through the snow to the club.
But once there, security staff on the door refused to let her in because she appeared to be drunk so she told her friends she would walk home instead.
Her friends put her in a taxi, which dropped Libby off close to her home but she "walked away from the safety of her front door" and towards Beverley Road.
She was later seen by passers-by "obviously drunk" and "sobbing" - including two men who spotted the student lying in the snow at the side of the road.
Jurors heard the bystanders tried to help her but were unable to understand what she was saying and she became verbally aggressive so they drove away.
A group of students who heard Libby crying outside their house let her in but she left, saying she wanted to go home, it was said.
The last person to see Libby alive told jurors she was screaming either to a "movement in the shadows" or a car close to where she was sitting on the ground.
'DON'T LEAVE ME'
Sainsbury's manager Matthew Handisides told the court he was walking home when he saw Libby sitting on the ground.
He added: "She was yelling, not towards me but to the car or the shadows, 'don't leave me'.
"I made an assessment that she was very intoxicated.
"The 'don't leave me' was more angry or cross rather than pleading or anything like that."
The witness said he believed Libby was "talking to her partner" even though he couldn't see one and carried on walking home.
Prosecutor Richard Wright QC asked if he saw her again, to which he witness replied "no".
He also replied "no" when asked if he saw any other man close to her at the time.
Meanwhile Pawel Relowicz was allegedly "stalking" the student after he "identified her as a target".
The Polish butcher "darted" across the road to "intercept her", jurors were told.
CCTV shows some "toing and froing" between him and Libby before she enters his silver Vauxhall Astra, Sheffield Crown Court heard.
The vehicle then drives away at 12.07am on February 1, 2019 - her damaged gold watch later found at the scene.
Just moments later, Libby was allegedly driven to a remote playing field by Relowicz where she was raped then dumped "dead or dying" in the River Hull.
She was discovered six weeks later on March 20, 2019, in the Humber estuary by a fishing boat - a gold necklace bearing the letter 'L' still hanging around her neck.
A post mortem could not establish a cause of death but DNA matching Relowicz was found on her, it was said.
When quizzed by police after his arrest, Relowicz said he "felt sorry" for the sobbing student and offered her a lift home, it was alleged.
He insisted he hadn't "kidnapped anyone", adding: “I walked past the girl and she says to me ‘Stop please’. She said ‘I need help’. And I was asking ‘What’s up?’.
“She went, ‘I need to go home, I need my mother’ and she was crying, she was all in tears.”
She was driven to the isolated playing fields where witness Sam Alford then reported hearing a "series of screams", it was said.
Mr Wright said: "They were distant screams but they were loud screams.
"Mr Alford recalled them as frantic screams that had urgency and had depth.
"There were gaps between them and there were several of them."
The court heard he told cops Libby was directing him towards the playing fields when he asked her to get out the car in case she vomited.
Relowicz then claimed she fell in the snow crying before he drove away and left the student walking on the pavement.
He added: "I know nothing more about it. I’ve never seen her since.”
The dad-of-two was also told by police witnesses heard "three periods of screaming" coming from the playing fields.
Relowicz replied: “I want her to be found. I’ve never been so honest in my life like I have been like this.
“I have said everything.”
Libby's last movements
January 31, 2019
Libby leaves her student home at Wellesley Avenue with friends at about 8.30pm and they walked to another student house on Cromer Street together
The group leave at about 11pm to walk to The Welly nightclub, at the junction of Wellington Lane and Beverley Road, where they arrive at 11.20pm
Libby is refused entry to the The Welly and is put in a taxi by her friends just before 11.30pm
The taxi drops her in Wellesley Avenue but she does not go home. She instead walks towards Beverley Road where she falls over in the street
Libby enters another house on Wellesley Avenue after the occupants heard her crying. She says she wants to go home but sets off towards Beverley Road, dropping her keys outside the house she left
She is then approached by a woman who tried to help her outside the former convent at the Endsleigh Centre, on Beverley Road
Two men try to help Libby as she lays in the snow near the junction of Haworth Road and Beverley Road. They were there from 11.40pm to 11.49pm
Another woman steps in to help as she sits on the floor near a bus stop close to the same junction. A supermarket manager spots her in the same location
Relowicz's Vauxhall Astra arrives at the end of Haworth Street at 11.57pm. The defendant gets out of the car, crosses the road to Beresford Avenue and tracks Libby as she walks back up Beverley Road
February 1, 2019
They interact outside the Endsleigh Centre and entered the grounds before walking back to the car at the end of Haworth Street
Relowicz drives off from Haworth Street at 12.08am with Libby in the car
They arrive at Oak Road playing fields at 12.11am
A man living in the house at the entrance to the playing fields wakes at 12.14am and "after a period that he thought was a couple of minutes" hears a woman screaming in the park. The man then sees a young man running from the park "perhaps a few minutes after the last scream"

He arrives back at Raglan Street but walks back to Newland Avenue where he is captured "walking up and down the road in that area for no apparent reason and exhibiting some strange behaviour"
The prosecution say Relowicz raped and murdered Miss Squire at Oak Road playing fields after arriving at 12.11am. They say he put her dead or dying into the River Hull, which runs along the north east of the park. They say this could have been at the 12.11am visit or the later one at 2.25am.
March 20, 2019
Libby's body is found in the Humber Estuary, off Spurn Point, by a fishing boat
The court heard Mr Alford was looking out of his window a few minutes after the last scream when he saw a man "emerging from the darkness" running.
Relowicz allegedly left the playing field around seven-and-a-half minutes later without Libby.
Mr Wright said this was "more than enough time" for him to have "taken or pursued Libby out into the playing fields, sexually attacked and killed her, put her body into the river, and then run back to his car."
He told jurors Relowicz's "sole purpose" was to "silence her screams" after he raped Libby.
The prosecutor added: "Her screams, and the scratches that she clearly managed to land on the face of the defendant as she fought him off, are just part of the evidence that establishes that she was raped by a man whose entire motivation for coming into contact with her that night was to take her away from safety to a remote area well known to him and there to subject her to his uncontrollable sexual urges.
"His very purpose in prowling the streets was in order to commit opportunistic sexual offences and the rape of Libby was just such an offence."
'HEIGHTENED SEXUAL AROUSAL'
The court was also told Relowicz returned to the playing fields in the early hours of the morning after Libby had vanished.
CCTV footage was said to have captured him standing with his knees bent performing a sex act on himself in the street.
He had also visited a porn site twice in the hours after Libby died and had been "in a state of heightened sexual arousal that night", jurors heard.
Two days later, on February 3, a used condom containing DNA matching Relowicz was discovered in the area.
After he was arrested, police found a pink holdall containing "trophies... taken in a series of sexually motivated burglaries", the court was told.
This included sex toys, photographs of young women and several pairs of women's knickers and thongs, it was said.
When quizzed by police, Relowicz said he "forgot" about them and they did not belong to him or his wife, the court heard.
He also had two "Halloween" masks in the boot of his car - one described as a "Scream" mask and the other which had red hair.
The dad-of-two told police they were in his boot because his wife said they were frightening for babies, it was said.
Mr Wright told jurors Relowicz had exposed himself to women and performed sex acts on himself in the street in the year before Libby's death.
He also allegedly watched them through their windows as they changed or had sex and swiped underwear and sex toys from women's homes.
