Tetra Pak death: Was Eva Rausing dead four weeks before her body was found?
THE sister of heiress Eva Rausing speaks of fears "something awful had happened."
Eva Rausing may have died four weeks before her body was discovered by police, according to reports.
The daughter-in-law of the billionaire founder of the Tetra-Pak packaging empire could not be reached by her sister as long ago as early June.
Be Kemeny said she traveled from the US to London after spending weeks worrying about her sister.
“I went upstairs to her bedroom and I was knocking on the door and texting her and calling out to her and there was no reply,” she told the Daily Mail newspaper.
“I think my sister was in there, passed away. I’d been worrying for weeks. I suspected something awful had happened.”
Investigators are said to be examining CCTV, banking and phone records, as well as statements from friends and neighbours, to try and piece together the heiress’s final movements.
She was last seen in public in early May and the last time she contacted her parents was via text message on May 3.
She and her husband Hans Kristian Rausing had transformed their £70 million Chelsea mansion into a squalid drugs den in the weeks before her death, a family friend has said.
Friends have also spoken of how the couple were taking large quantities of heroin supplemented by cocaine and prescription painkillers including morphine.
One said that Mrs Rausing’s drug addiction had left her in a state of paranoia and despair.
The 48-year-old’s remains were found last week after police detained her husband for possession of controlled drugs.
Her death remains unexplained, with investigators awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
Mr Rausing, 49, has been arrested on suspicion of murder but has not been questioned yet as he has been undergoing treatment for the effects of alcohol withdrawal.
