The Polish butcher who was found guilty of raping and murdering Libby Squire was photographed grinning in a pair of reindeer antlers just weeks before he killed the student.

It comes as a close friend of Relowicz has revealed how he led ‘two totally different lives’.

Speaking to The Mirror, Relowicz’s friend said that he had seemed like a ‘normal guy’ who had worked hard at work as a butcher.

Among Hull’s Polish community, Relowicz had seemed like a family man who enjoyed fishing and playing football.

However, on the night Libby Squire disappeared, Relowicz had already told friends he had picked a girl up, but denied the girl had been Libby.

He had told another friend that the student had scratched his face when he told her to get out of his car and that she had tried to undress herself.

During the trial, the court heard Relowicz ‘targeted’ Libby after seeing her ‘drunk’ and ‘vulnerable’ in the streets of Hull, East Yorkshire

Relowicz’s close friend also told the paper that he had arrived in England in 2015 with a girlfriend back in Poland, but that he started searching online dating sites for a new partner when his former girlfriend left him. 

He met his wife Jagoda on one of the dating sites in 2016 and they only met ‘once or twice’ before she moved to England from Poland to join him in Hull.

He also revealed how his wife had been left to call his friends during the night while he was out for hours at a time, fearing he was having an affair.

After Relowicz was arrested, Jagoda visited him in prison only to be told by him that he had been seeing prostitutes during their marriage, his friend revealed. 

Jagoda has since returned to Poland and has found herself a new partner.

Speaking after her son was found guilty of having raped and murdered Libby Squire, the killer’s mother revealed to the Sun Online that she had wept in sympathy for the student’s parents.

The 53-year-old said: ‘A beautiful girl was killed. It’s heartbreaking.

‘I think of her parents and what they are going through. It’s unimaginable. ‘It tore my heart apart.’

She had previously told The Telegraph the charges he faced were a ‘shock not only to our family, but also for our friends and neighbours.’

Speaking afterwards Libby’s heartbroken mother Lisa said in a statement she ‘longs to die’ to be with her daughter again.

In a statement, Libby’s mother (left) said: ‘I have not only lost my daughter but the opportunity to be a grandmother to her children’

She said on the steps of the court: ‘There are no words that can explain the torture of living without my Libby. She was a sister, a granddaughter, niece and cousin.

‘I have not only lost my daughter but the opportunity to be a grandmother to her children.

‘In any times of trouble she wanted me, her mum. Knowing I was not there when she needed me will haunt me for the rest of my life.

‘I now live in two worlds where I live as a mother, wife, friend and employee but there is also a world that will run parallel and is a dark and lonely world.

‘In this world, I long to die so I can be with my girl. I wake up with disappointment that I will live another day.

‘This is a world where I silently scream in pain and pray that one day we will be reunited in a dream, a world where we constantly look for signs in every rainbow.

Libby’s body was recovered from the Humber Estuary on March 20, following the largest search in Humberside Police’s history

In the 18 months prior to Libby’s disappearance, it was heard, Relowicz committed a series of sexually-motivated crimes in the student area of Hull

‘A world I didn’t want to be in. Imagine wanting to live to be here with your children but one where you long to die so I can be with my child.’

During the trial, the court heard Relowicz ‘targeted’ Libby after seeing her ‘drunk’ and ‘vulnerable’ in the streets of Hull, East Yorkshire, on January 31, 2019.

He then took her in his car to a remote playing field and raped her before dumping her ‘dead or dying’ into a river.

Relowicz admitted having sex with University of Hull undergraduate Libby but claimed it was consensual.
