A polish murder and “dubbed the beast”. He was jailed for nine years in May 2003 and charged two months later on the 29th July with the murder of a 12 year-old Macedonian girl, Katerina Koneva, in West London in 1997. After a trial at the Old Bailey in 2004, he was convicted of murder and jailed for life. The Common Sergeant of London, Judge Peter Beaumont QC ordered that Kunowski should die behind bars. 'I must ensure you spend the rest of your life in prison,' the judge said. The officer leading the investigation, DCI David Little, said: 'I would suggest he is probably the most dangerous sexual offender I have come across. He is certainly the most prolific.' Kunowski only spent five years behind bars before dying of heart failure at HM Prison Frankland, Durham, on the 23nd September 2009. He is now suspected of involvement in the disappearances of 19-year-old student Elizabeth Chau in 1999 and Lola Shenkoya, a 27-year-old who vanished on her way home from work in 2000.
