Eva Rausing, the wife of multi-millionaire Hans Kristian Rausing, died as a result of the dependant abuse of drugs, a coroner ruled today.
The 48-year-old's body was found in an advanced state of decomposition in July at the couple's west London home. She had died in May.
Mr Rausing, the heir to the Tetra Pak fortune, was given two suspended sentences in August after admitting that he prevented the lawful and decent burial of his wife's body.
