The monster was caged for life with a minimum of 36 years after pleading guilty to the “premeditated and predatory” stranger attack in Kidbrooke, South East London.
Now, a leading crime expert has revealed seven key clues that Selamaj was guilty after cops released CCTV footage of the days leading up to his plea.
Criminology Professor David Wilson said the first two clues came from a clip taken in the Met Police custody suite.
Footage shows the killer’s blank reaction and lack of movement as he was charged with Sabina’s murder.
Prof. Wilson told the Sun: “In the police custody suite clip, there’s a flatness to him. He’s very impassive, he’s very controlled.
“He’s showing very little emotion. Even when he’s wiping his face with his hands. That isn’t in any sense displaying any kind of shame.
“He’s simply wiping his face.”
Prof. Wilson said this “leads into” the second clip cops shared after his sentencing.
It shows Selamaj buying a rolling pin from Sainsbury’s in Kidbrooke before the violent and “sexually motivated” attack on Sabina – who was a complete stranger to him.
He bought the rolling pin along with chilli powder, an energy drink and a bag for life at the supermarket.
But he ended up using an emergency traffic triangle, which he thought was a “better weapon”, bludgeoning Sabina 34 times before strangling her in Cator Park.
Prof. Wilson said the footage shows Selamaj “going through the motions” of his murder with no interest in concealing his identity.
The expert added: “What’s interesting is [the killing] has sometimes been described as carefully planned.
“I don’t get a sense of careful planning her at all. There’s no attempt to hide his identity.
“In the CCTV when he’s buying the rolling pin he’s quickly caught on camera.
“His car is caught via ANPR.”
Prof. Wilson said another clue is Selamaj’s “displaced anger” – which was intended for his wife.
“This is a man on a mission to make his anger real. He can’t focus on the person he’s angry at – which is his wife,” he said.
“He displaces it both geographically – he’s travelled from Eastbourne to London – but he’s also displaced it in terms of his target.”
Sabina herself was another clue, Prof. Wilson explained.
He added: “It’s often been interpreted when you read the reporting of this, that ‘Sabina Nessa was a random target because he didn’t know her’.
“But he has chosen somebody who is an aspirational figure for him.

“And I wonder to what extent his wife was also more aspirational than he was.
“And Sabina would have come across as someone who is very professional, very middle class, a school teacher.
“I’m not sure that that wasn’t who he was trying to destroy. He was trying to destroy a woman of that background.”
Prof. Wilson explained that the anger was intended for his estranged wife – who had rejected his sexual advances hours before the killing.
“That is what triggers this,” Prof. Wilson explained.
“That is where this displaced anger comes from. He idealises his wife and needs to find a way of making his anger become real.”
Selamaj made no comment to officers when he was arrested – but asked one question when quizzed by cops.
Detective Sergeant Mark Johnson said: “When he was cautioned, he said, ‘what would happen if I open up now’.
There’s a flatness to Selamaj. He’s very impassive, he’s very controlled.

“That is the only thing that he has said to the police all throughout the investigation.”
This query adds to the final clue given by Selamaj.
The brutal killer considered his horrific plan “closed” at the death of Sabina, and didn’t care what happened after he was called out.
This feeling of the matter being over was part of the reason why Selamaj refused to show up to court for his sentencing.
Prof. Wilson said: “He’s got nothing left emotionally. He’s done what he’s set out to do. For him it’s over.
“That’s one of the reasons why he didn’t turn up in court.
“As far as he would be concerned, it doesn’t matter whether you punish me because I’ve achieved what I wanted to achieve.”
