Man got jail sentence for murdering and hiding two female bodies in freezer

A man, Zahid Younis, has been found guilty of murdering two women before hiding their bodies inside a freezer in his flat.

Zahid Younis who is 36 years old, is facing a life sentence for killing Hungarian national Henriett Szucs, 34, and mother of three Mihrican Jan Mustafa, 38.

Szucs went missing in August 2016 and Mustafa went missing in May 2018.

Their bodies were recovered inside a small, padlocked, chest freezer in Younis’s flat in Vandome Close, Canning Town, in east London on 27 April last year(2019).

Younis, a convicted sex offender known as “Boxer”, admitted putting the women in a freezer and pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful and indecent burial of a body.

He denied two counts of murder but was found guilty of both charges by a jury at Southwark Crown Court on Thursday after 16 hours and six minutes of deliberations.

Younis showed no emotion as the verdicts were read out, and the judge, Ms Justice Cheema-Grubb, told Younis he will later be sentence on Thursday.

Members of Mustafa’s family, who attended the trial, were excited after the announcement.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, of the Metropolitan Police, told the PA news agency: “Zahid Younis is a very dangerous and a repulsive person who preys on less privileged women and abuses them, which causes them severe injuries.”

Younis was married to a 14-year-old girl in an Islamic way at a mosque in Walthamstow, east London, in 2004.

He eventually got jailed for two-and-a-half years for sexual assault on the teenage girl and unlawful sexual activity, and was put on the sex offenders’ register.

Younis was also sentenced to four years and 11 months imprisonment in 2007, for two counts of assault occasioning and following an abusive relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

Prosecutor Duncan Penny QC told jurors at his murder trial.
Both Szucs and Mustafa were “vulnerable women living some chaotic lives”, which includes periods of
drug addictions and homelessness.

The court heard Younis bought a freezer shortly after killing Szucs for the sole aim of concealing her body.
