Terrible News From Lars Thomas

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 30th, 2012

I am afraid that, this morning, I have some terrible news to relate. The body of Jeanett Thomas – wife of cryptozoologist Lars Thomas – has been found after nearly half a year of being missing. Please keep Lars and his two sons deeply in your thoughts and prayers at this very tragic and sad time. I will let Lars relate the details to you:

Dear friends and colleagues in the world of cryptozoology.

So many of you have expressed love and support during the almost six months my wife has been missing, so I feel it is my duty to inform you that the long wait, the months of anxiety and speculating is over – a few days ago I had…

The dreaded visit

On a Wednesday morning

There were two of them

We’re sorry to inform you…

Finally the answer

The gut wrenching answer I had known for months

Drowned, they said

Drifted all the way to the Polish coast, they said

I don’t really care, because now I truly know that you are no longer here, and that some part of me will be for ever lonely

23 years – just like that

But we will survive, the boys and I, we will never get over it, but we will learn to live with it.

But I promise you will be proud of us.

I promise I will give our boys the best life I possibly can.

I promise we will try to be happy again.

My fingers hesitate as my tears fall on the keyboard

So for the very last time
Farewell my love, my sweet, my life

Sleep well.

Apparently Jeanett fell into the water in Copenhagen Harbour and drowned the night in February where she disappeared. It is a small comfort that the weather and the water were blisteringly cold. It must have been over in seconds. And then she drifted all the way across the Baltic to land on the north coast of Poland. She was actually found in early April, but for some reason the Polish authorities didn’t bother to try establishing her identity until now. I have no idea when I can get her home and bury her – the paperwork (of which the Polish authorities are very fond it would seem) could take several more weeks.

Thank you – and please remember her.
