Connecticut Man Fakes Death To Avoid Wedding
Tucker Blandford had a very bad case of cold feet; so bad that shortly before the big day, which was to be August 15, he called his fiance disguised as his father to tell her her husband-to-be had died.
She then rang the American’s parents to offer her condolences, but they told her he was alive and well – and Miss Lanchester quickly learned he had faked his death to avoid the wedding.
She said: ‘He has shattered my trust and I’m not sure I’ll ever be in a relationship again. All I ever did was love him. I’m so sick of being messed around and I’m glad to be rid of him…
After spending a year together Miss Lanchester began to plan for her return to Britain – but Mr Blandford proposed. They spoke daily and began making plans to spend their life together.
Miss Lanchester began to organise her dream wedding and set a date for the big day – August 15, 2014. She bought a handmade dress from eBay and picked out every detail for the occasion…
He told a reporter in a phone call: ‘I’m a terrible, awful person. I know I shouldn’t have told her I was dead, but I didn’t know what else to do.
‘Alex is an amazing girl but I got scared and wanted to get out of the relationship. It was moving extremely fast and with us being in different countries, it was really hard.[su_sky_ad]
