Tetra Pak Heir Arrested After Wife Found Dead, Daily Mail Says

July 10, 2012

Hans Kristian Rausing, the son of Swedish billionaire and former Tetra Pak chairman Hans Rausing, was arrested after police found the body of his wife Eva at their London home, the Daily Mail newspaper reported.

A police spokesman confirmed that a 49-year-old man was arrested yesterday on suspicion of possessing drugs, and that officers searching his Chelsea home found a body. The spokesman wouldn’t identify the man or the deceased. The death is being treated as unexplained and the man is being held at a South London police station, he said.

Jorgen Haglind, a spokesman for Tetra Pak’s parent company, said the Rausings divested their interests in the business in 1995.

“As this tragic event has no connection to Tetra Pak it would be fully inappropriate for us to comment,” Haglind said in an e-mailed statement.

Efforts to reach the elder Rausing were unsuccessful.
