A suspected drug dealer accused of wrapping the body of a young woman who collapsed at his home during a drug-fuelled party in a carpet before dumping it has caused outrage by trying to sell his ‘exclusive’ to a tabloid newspaper.
He contacted Swiss tabloid ‘Blick’ that said he had asked for a large sum of money to disclose what really happened to Isabella during the drugs-infused party night at his home.
However, ‘Blick’ declined J.B.’s exclusive story and instead ran a story about his brazen attempt to earn money from Isabella’s death.
The young woman identified only as Isabella T., 20, because of local privacy laws collapsed and allegedly died in a flat belonging to the 37-year-old Dutchman during a party on 2nd November 2017.
The Dutchman, identified only by his initials of J.B., who lives in the town of Thundorf in the canton of Thurgau in Switzerland, allegedly disposed of Isabella’s body by wrapping her in a carpet and dumping her in nearby woodland with friends.
Pensioner Manfred Hunziker, 79, found her body three months later and informed the police.
According to the autopsy, there were no signs of a violent death although the exact cause of death and circumstances surrounding it could never be fully determined.
Medical forensics found traces of alcohol, cocaine and cannabis and learned that Isabella had multiple epileptic seizures before her death.
According to local media, J.B. was the last person to ever see Isabella alive.
However, instead of calling for an ambulance when Isabella collapsed, he allegedly called two Swiss friends to dispose of the body.
J.B. is still being investigated for failing to render medical assistance, interfering with a corpse and drug -related offences.
Spokesman for the prosecution Marco Breu said: “The case is pending, there is still no final decision.”
J.B., who has a South American background and is reportedly known as a local drug dealer, is still currently a free man.
Isabella’s mother Violeta T. was shocked when she heard the news.
She said: “How is such a thing possible? The man has no conscience. I pray to God that I will never see him again.
“My daughter is dead and he was partying. He should have tried to save her life instead of dumping her inside a carpet.”
However, she is sure that “God will punish him” for his alleged crimes.
Violeta said that she still thinks about her dead daughter every day.
She added: “I am fortunately a little bit distracted at work, but when I get away from the business my thoughts are with Isabella. All the time.”
Investigations are continuing.
