Billionaire Tetra-Pak drug addicts have Barbados home, ties

Tetra-Pak heir Hans Rausing is under arrest after his wife was found dead at their home in Cadogan Place, Chelsea, UK.

Heroin, crack cocaine

What a terrible end to wasted lives. They had all the opportunities that money could bring – but they had all the temptations too and they were not able to overcome their weaknesses. They could have done so much good for themselves, their four children, their families, for the world. They lacked nothing material, but they obviously lacked what is important.

Yes, this story is just breaking, and yes, we’re making some assumptions here – but we’re not pulling those assumptions out of thin air. So many people tried to get these two back on the narrow path, but sometimes there’s just nothing you can do. Even Prince Charles gave them a second chance.

Whatever happened, I’m sorry for Hans, sorry for Eva and their children, their families and just sorry for the whole damn mess. God knows some good people tried to help them.

    Sorry to hear about this. Eva was a fun lady. Both were down to earth with normal people. Nothing pretentious about them. So sorry.

    yet again sadly no knowledge or understanding of drug addiction. it is not about wealth or status it is about the addiction and the enslavement of the mind and body that goes hand in hand with drug addiction. I am a drug and alcohol behavioural therapist.

    There are those of us who have inner voids that we ourselves are not able to truly understand so we turn to drugs and alcohol. Maybe they knew nothing about themselves. Our role as human being on this earth is to :”know thyself and you shall know the gods of the universe”. When you come to “know” something or someone, you can have subtle power over it, him or her.

    Too many of us look to others for validation of who we really are as individuals. At times that is not enough so we turn to drugs and alcohol. These substances never get us to the point for which we are searching. Prayers, meditations and silence will begin us on the path to knowing ourselves. Notice that I did not say anything about church attendance!

    We fail to connect with the Christ Spirit within ourselves. If Christ is our Father, if we were made in the image of Christ, would we not have a part of that image within us? This gospel must be proclaimed in our churches as often as is possible to assist persons in understanding that we are all connected to the Christ Spirit in whom we live and move and have our being!

    Never trust a drug addict. There is no such thing as an ‘ex’ drug addict, only an addict who is on the wagon.

    Dear Maxine,

    I know Hans and I knew Eva. I cannot believe she is gone but I accept it because everyone who knew her feared for her. Hans smokes Borkum Riff Bourbon Whisky. That is one of his addictions and one of mine. I have no other addictions but Hans has his many. If his pipe collection was his only addiction life would be differ.

    He could not harm Eva intentionally. No way. they more than loved each other.They were magic together but also caustic like poison.

    I loved them both. so sad for all.
