Tetra Pak heir admits preventing wife's burial

26-Aug-2012 ---
Hans Kristian Rausing, an heir to the Tetra Pak fortune, has been given a 10-month suspended custodial sentence after admitting he denied his wife, Eva, a decent and lawful burial.

Isleworth crown court heard a story unfold of a loving couple's terrible drug addiction and social isolation, and Rausing's total denial after his wife's death on 7 May. Eva Rausing's body lay for two months under a pile of clothes behind the sealed door of a second floor annexe in the couple's home in Belgravia, London.
