Husband searches for wife's missing body parts after her mysterious Caribbean holiday death on 5
Peter Crouch, from Essex, was left heartbroken when his partner Lynne (pictured) died on her 54th birthday while they were on getaway to the Dominican Republic over Christmas.
A devastated husband is searching for his dead wife's missing body parts after she was cut up following her death on a romantic Caribbean holiday.
Peter Crouch, from Essex, was left heartbroken when his partner Lynne died on her 54th birthday while they were on a getaway to the Dominican Republic over Christmas.
Medics told Mr Crouch, 54, that she had contracted meningitis but a second post-mortem in the UK revealed she had no trace of the disease.
Morticians also discovered Lynne's eyes, heart and stomach and six other organs were missing from her body.
The business owner was forced to endure five 'hellish' months attempting to recover his wife's organs before he was told they had been found.
Coroners in the UK have yet to perform a DNA test on the kidney, liver, lung and spleen that were shipped over from the Dominican Republic.
But Mr Crouch, who received his partner's organs on the day of their wedding anniversary, believes they belong to a stranger.

He told The Mirror: 'I know that is not my Lynne. You can't just find body parts like that all of a sudden after months and months of not knowing where they are. Something's not right.'
He worries they have been left forgotten in a Dominican hospital, or sold on the black market.
He told the publication: 'When we got her body back there was nothing there. It was an empty shell. I had to put less than half of my wife to rest.'
Lynne died in a quarantine ward in hospital in the Caribbean country after battling the illness for less than a week.
