Everard went missing on March 3 while walking home from a friend’s flat in Clapham to her residence in Brixton.
Wayne Couzens, 48, a serving Met police officer, has been charged with her kidnap and murder.
The incident has sent shockwaves around the United Kingdom with the Duchess of Cambridge leading the tributes.
Her murder has also caused outrage and debate over the safety of women on Britain’s streets.
Manchester United striker Rashford paid his respects and wrote online: “This is just heartbreaking, I’m so sorry.
“This should have never happened. Men we have a role to play.
“To listen, to protect, and to allow women to feel safe at whatever time of day.
“I have sisters, nieces… just horrible. I’m sending my love to Sarah’s family.”
