LIVERPOOL, England –
(Please read the post before watching the video below)
Curt Willi Jurant, a German National, was traveling on a weekend flight with his beloved wife Gitta Jurant and his stepdaughter Anke Anusic (both also German) from Liverpool to Berlin. At 91 years old, Mr. Jurant didn’t move well and was in failing health, so the two ladies in his life had to constantly assist him with everything he did. After getting everything ready, the ladies put the old man into a cab with them and headed to Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport. Upon arrival an airport worker assisted the ladies in getting Mr. Jurant out of the cab and into his wheelchair. They wheeled him into the terminal and up to the ticket booth where they started waiting in line.
Andrew Millea, the worker who assisted getting him into the wheelchair alerted his superiors that something wasn’t right. Airport personnel and first aid workers approached Mr. Jurant and his loved ones and inquired about his condition, evidently he was slumped over in his chair. The ladies assured them he was quite all right, that was how he always slept. They asked why he was wearing sunglasses? They said he was blind and one of his eyes was pushed up and quite ugly so they didn’t want people staring at him. They asked about the pale completion off his skin. They said he’s a little pale but that’s the normal color of his skin.
Andrew Millea had alerted his superiors that when he helped get the man out of the cab he was, “Ice cold, and he knew straight away that the man was dead.” (As if you didn’t already know that.) But the ladies had tried to reassure him he was not.
Game over, you’re busted.
Now that the first strange part of this strange story is done, how about the second part? When it was finally determined that the man was in fact dead, both women insisted he was not, that was just the way he was. Finally, when they agreed that he was deceased, they adamantly denied that they knew anything about it, and insisted he was alive when they left home for the 40 mile trip to the airport. Possible? Very unlikely, but sure, I suppose anything’s possible……that is until the coroner’s record stated that Willi had been dead for at least 12 hours……damn Euro cab drivers can’t drive anywhere in a timely manner anymore. It was clear that Willi did die of natural causes, so the ladies were not accused of foul play, but they were arrested and charged with failing to give notification of a death.
To this day, both women deny they knew Curt Willi Jurant was dead when they tried to check him onto a plane. And his poor widow told the BBC of her husband, “He was the best man in the world, my Willi was my God. Willi was a fantastic man and I loved him very much. This is all crazy, I would never do such a thing.”
I’m sure Mrs. Jurant is honestly a grieving widow, and I really do mean that, after all, he did die of natural causes, but she really didn’t know he was dead? Come on, Gitta……something smells a little fishy here.
The moral of the story: When you idiotically try and smuggle your dead husband on to a plane and get caught, at least admit you knew he was dead the whole time.
One final question: Why would they try to smuggle a dead body out of England and into Germany in the first place? Speculation was because it can be very expensive and time consuming to embalm a body, pay for a coffin, and pay freight charged to get it into Germany. It’s much cheaper to get to Germany when you’re alive.
