We previously wrote about the depths of drug despair that über wealthy couple Hans and Eva Rausing spiralled into.
Now it has been revealed that for TWO MONTHS, Hans Kristian went about his daily business as his wife’s rotting corpse laid in their London home.
And in further sickening revelations, it emerged that police found Eva’s body in a fly-filled room under a pile of clothing and garbage bags that had been taped together. Her husband had used deodorizing power to try to minimize the smell.
The bombshell news comes as Hans Kristian appeared in court today in London and pleaded guilty to preventing the proper burial of his wife.
Hans Kristian was sentenced to a 10-month suspended jail sentence that will require him to receive extensive treatment at a drug rehabilitation center, plus a two-month suspended sentence for driving under the influence of drugs.
Judge Richard McGregor-Johnson said that the 49-year-old did not do anything to contribute to his wife’s death, which the judge said was probably caused by heart failure coupled with drug abuse, and appeared to suffer from a mental breakdown.
This is something, Hans Kristian, himself acknowledge in court today (Wednesday).
“I do not feel, with the benefit of hindsight, that following her death I acted rationally,” he said, adding that he had been “very traumatized” by the situation.
“I do not have a very coherent recollection of the events leading up to and since Eva’s death,” his statement read. “Safe to assure you that I have never wished her or done her any harm.”
The details revealed Wednesday established that investigators believe Eva died on May 7, with drugs including cocaine in her system.
