An Argentine veterinarian living in Spain is accused of chopping up his dead wife after she died as a result of a botched liposuction procedure he performed.
Identified only as MG, the veterinarian allegedly panicked after the DIY liposuction on March 28 went wrong and his wife died om his operating table. According to Spanish media, MG, 46, cut his wife, 45, up and took the wrapped pieces to a pet crematorium disguised as a large dog. The crematorium, believing MG had brought in a routine animal carcass to dispose of, cremated his wife’s remains and gave him the ashes, which he kept in an urn.
The couple’s children, the oldest a 19-year-old boy, continuously asked where there mother and the veterinarian finally confessed.
At the urging of his children, MG confessed to police what he claims was an accidental death on April 4. He also gave them his wife’s ashes.
MG had his own clinic, the Pet Care Veterinary Clinic in Benijofar, Spain.
Police say they are still investigating but forensic tests cannot be performed on the ashes to determine a cause of death. MG initially claimed he found his wife dead from an overdose and was unable to revive, but later admitted she died after the DIY lipo.
