The corpse of Eva Rausing, a troubled billionaire heiress who was found dead in a $109 million house in the posh Chelsea neighborhood of London, may have been left rotting in her bedroom for up to four weeks while her husband continued to live there.
The circumstances surrounding the death of Eva Rausing, whose husband Hans Rausing is a heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune, could not have been more bizarre. After police arrested Hans Rausing for an unrelated offense, he confessed to having lived in the same room as Eva Rausing’s corpse for weeks instead of reporting her death.
Eva Rausing, a heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune, contacted Swedish investigative journalist and author Gunnar Wall claiming that she had information about the murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme shortly before her mysterious death this summer.
Billionaire Hans Kristian Rausing was formally charged with obstructing the “lawful and decent burial” of his wife, whose body was found in a decomposed state earlier this month in their $109 million mansion in London.
