'Bus Stop Stalker' Levi Bellfield will spend the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of mowing down Isleworth schoolgirl Kate Sheedy and murdering two other women.
The 39-year-old former bouncer, who was born in Isleworth and grew up around Feltham and Hanworth, was handed a 'whole life' sentence at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
After more than a week spent deliberating, jurors finally found the woman-hating 'animal' guilty of attempting to murder Miss Sheedy in 2004 and battering to death students Marsha McDonnell, in 2003, and Amelie Delagrange, the following year.
As police linked Bellfield to a host of similar attacks across London, it emerged Miss Sheedy is still paying for vital physiotherapy herself because the NHS refuses to shell out.
In a statement read out in court she revealed she has had to pay for all treatments herself since January 2005.
Four years after her terrifying ordeal, she remains unable to play tennis and finds it uncomfortable to sit for more than an hour.
She has no feeling in parts of her back and requires regular physiotherapy sessions for spasms.
However, it is the mental scars Kate finds hardest to live with.
She still suffers nightmares, is afraid to go out alone after dark and cannot bring herself to drive again because she is 'too aware of the power of the vehicle'.
Speaking outside the court, Kate told how Bellfield's conviction meant she would finally be able to 'move on'.
"The scars on my body and the memories have been something I have never been able to get rid of," she said. "Hopefully, now I can move on."
Detectives are linking Bellfield with 20 attacks across London, including the murder of Feltham schoolgirl Patsy Morris, pictured below, whose body was dumped on Hounslow Heath 28 years ago.
It was reported this week that Bellfield dated Patsy, who was 14 at the time of her death, when they both attended Feltham Comprehensive School (now Feltham Community College), in Browells Lane.
George Morris received a death threat from a young teenage boy, which he now believes could have been Bellfield, in the weeks following his daughter's murder.
Meanwhile, four high-ranking officers from Hounslow Police have been disciplined after missing clues that nearly let Bellfield slip through the net.
Police insist they have tightened up procedures after coppers failed to view CCTV footage from the scene of Kate's attack for another eight months, by which time Amelie Delagrange had been battered to death on Twickenham Green.
MARSHA MCDONNELL was battered to death just yards from her home in Hampton after enjoying a night out with friends.
The petite blonde was found lying face down in a pool of blood in Priory Road just after midnight on February 4, 2003.
Neighbours, woken by a loud thud, later recalled how her fingers were still moving and she was making a low, moaning sound.
The 19-year-old, who had been enjoying a gap year, died two days later in hospital of massive head injuries.
Miss McDonnell, who grew up in Isleworth, had been working at a gift shop in Kingston and went to the cinema and a bar with friends that night before catching the 111 bus to Percy Road, Hampton.
She was just yards from the front garden of her family home - where she lived with mother Ute and father Phil, sisters Maya and Natalie and brother Jack - when Bellfield approached from behind and smashed her over the head three times with a hammer.
CCTV cameras had captured Bellfield's Vauxhall Corsa passing the bus stop as his victim stepped off the 111 minutes earlier.
Her attacker drove past her and parked further down the road, waiting to strike.
The 'academic high-flier', keen violinist and netball player was taking a gap year before continuing her studies at university.
Her father was a former tour manager with bands including Fleetwood Mac and Van Morrison, and pop diva Kylie Minogue is said to have sent flowers to the family after Miss McDonnell's death.
AMELIE DELAGRANGE had been telling friends how safe she felt just hours before she was battered to death on Twickenham Green.
The 22-year-old French student had only been in the country for three months when Bellfield struck as she took a short-cut home on August 19, 2004.
She had been waitressing at Maison Blanc in Richmond and enjoyed a few drinks at Cristalz wine bar in Twickenham after work, before catching the bus home just after 9pm.
An hour later she was found lying on the cricket pitch in a pool of blood. She died just after midnight.
Detectives believe she became confused and caught the wrong bus, ending up at Fulwell Bus Garage - more than a mile away from her flat in Gould Road, Twickenham.
As she was walking back, her slow progress suggests she stopped to talk to her killer at some point.
Little did she know Bellfield lay in wait beside the green, where he had parked his white Ford Courier van.
Amelie's parents Dominique and Jean-Francois marked their daughter's 26th birthday during the trial by laying flowers at the scene of her death.
KATE SHEEDY was returning home after celebrating her last day at Gumley Convent School in Isleworth when Bellfield mowed her down outside an industrial estate.
She was left fighting for her life, with a split liver, multiple fractured ribs and a collapsed lung, after the attack on May 28, 2004.
But the 18-year-old head girl made a remarkable recovery and was able to attend her school prom six weeks later. Now 21, she is studying politics at a top university.
Bellfield spotted Miss Sheedy, who had been drinking with pals in Twickenham, as she got off a H22 bus in Worton Road, Isleworth.
Feeling threatened by his dark-screened people carrier, which was parked ahead of her with its engine running, she crossed the road and continued walking home.
But Bellfield, furious she had 'thwarted' his attempt to chat her up, made a U-turn and ran her down before reversing over her and speeding off.
Lying in agony yards from the home she shared with mum Eileen and sister Ellen, Miss Sheedy mustered the strength to call home, saying 'help, I think I'm going to die'.
Video clips taken by Bellfield's then-girlfriend early the next morning show him carrying a torch and telling her to 'F*** off'.
JURORS at Levi Bellfield's Old Bailey trial failed to reach a verdict on two of the charges and the Crown Prosecution Service will not seek a re-trial.
Anna Marie-Rennie was said to be Bellfield's first victim on October 15, 2001, when she left her flat in Ross Road, Whitton, after rowing with her boyfriend.
He was accused of grabbing the pretty 17-year-old, pictured right, as she walked along nearby Hospital Bridge Road, beside Crane Park, just before midnight.
Miss Rennie, now 23, is said to have later picked him out in a video parade.
Irma Dragoshi, of Hounslow, still suffers from amnesia more than four years after she was smashed over the head as she waited for a bus in Longford Village, near Heathrow.
The 34-year-old hairdresser was on the phone to her husband on December 16, 2003, when he heard a massive scream and the line went dead.
Sunil Gharu, who worked for Bellfield at the time, claims he witnessed his boss carrying out the attack from his VW Golf.
LEVI BELLFIELD has a long history as a violent womaniser.
The burly 39-year-old, who lived in Feltham, Hounslow and Hanworth during his youth, has fathered 11 children, aged three to 18, by five different women.
He has a string of convictions dating back to 1982, when, aged just 13, he burgled two sheds in Hanworth.
The former wheelclamper spent much of his teens in court for offences including arming himself with a fence panel during a scuffle in Feltham.
Bellfield, who worked as a bouncer before setting up his wheelclamping business four years ago, was jailed for 13 months in 1991 after assaulting two cops at a house party.
He was back before judges two years later after attacking a man he claimed had pinched his girlfriend's bottom at Twickenham's Red Lion pub.
His final conviction came in 2005 when he was jailed for eight months after speeding down the hard shoulder to beat traffic jams in west London.
Det Ch Insp Colin Sutton, who led the investigation into Amelie Delagrange's death, said Bellfield had an 'unhealthy obsession with the opposite sex'.
"He had a habit of chatting up women from his car and there's a theory that when they told him to go away he reacted badly," he added.
"You could say Kate Sheedy thwarted him by crossing the road, and Amelie's average speed drops markedly after the van's gone past her, which suggests she stopped and talked to Bellfield."
Bellfield would leer at girls from Gumley House Convent School in Isleworth, where Kate Sheedy was head girl.
He began an affair with a 16-year-old and moved into a rented flat with her in Crosby Close, Hanworth.
His former friend and employee Ricky Brouillard described his boss as an 'animal' and told police Bellfield had offered him the chance to sleep with the girl and her 14-year-old sister.
A CHANNEL 4 game show, an Italian 'terrorist' and Bellfield's habit of collecting parking tickets like they were going out of fashion all contributed to his downfall.
Unable to rely on forensic evidence, detectives had to trawl through thousands of hours of CCTV footage and phone calls to track down the killer.
Police disclosed a whopping 56,000 documents to the defence and tracked down 549 witnesses, including several of Bellfield's ex-girlfriends.
The key to unlocking the case came following an appeal after Amelie Delagrange's murder prompted nearly 130 calls from women thinking it might
have been their ex-
Police were despairing until one call about a wheelclamper with a white van sparked the memory of a quick-witted officer.
He recalled speaking to a garage owner who had sold such a van to a wheelclamper months ago and was still getting parking tickets.
The seller only had a mobile number for his customer, but luckily that matched the number Bellfield had given police when he reported a supposed terror suspect (his Italian next-door neighbour).
When Bellfield was later shown incriminating movie clips from the night Kate Sheedy was attacked, he claimed the date on his girlfriend's video phone was wrong.
However, The Distraction Show with Jimmy Carr, left, is audible in the background on one of the clips, proving the clock was just six minutes fast.
