Police say Eva Rausing, one of Britain’s richest women, has been found dead in a west London home.
The 48-year-old was the American born wife of Hans Kristian Rausing - heir to the multibillion-dollar TetraPak packaging fortune.
British police said Tuesday that they had arrested a 49-year-old man on suspicion of drug possession, and that a subsequent search in relation to that arrest had turned up a body.
Police confirmed the identity of the deceased in a statement, adding that the man, who has been arrested in connection with the death, is no longer at a police station but receiving medical attention.
Police said an autopsy had not yet established a formal cause of death.
