In May 2012 Hans Rausing's drug addicted son, also named Hans, carried out a bizarre and desperate charade for eight weeks after his wife millionairess Eva Rausing's drug induced death, convincing his servants she was in bed with a fever.

Tetra Pak heir Hans Rausing banned staff from entering the couple's squalid 'crack den' bedroom in their otherwise-immaculate £70million London mansion.

He said she was suffering a fever and he was taking her temperature three times a day. In fact he was covering her rotting body with 12 layers of clothes, blankets and plastic sealed with industrial tape before covering it in deodorant to mask the smell.

'I heard her exhale and then she did not move at all. I saw her alive for a few seconds. I went to her and grabbed her hands, and tried to pull her up – I shouted “Eva, Eva, Eva”. I turned her towards me and saw her eyes had dimmed. She had stopped breathing before I reached her. I knew she had died – I was absolutely certain she was dead.
