Shameless Fiance faked his own death to avoid Wedding

Fiance faked his own death to avoid Wedding
He rang her up pretending to be his own father to break the bad news. “Alex, this is Tucker’s dad. There’s no easy way to say this ... I am sorry to say that Tucker is dead.” The 23-year-old bride-to-be in the UK was devastated to hear that her fiancé was suffering from depression and had committed suicide by jumping in front of a car, just days before their planned wedding.

Alex Lanchester, 23, from the United Kingdom met her ex-fiance Tucker Blandford in August 2012 at a college in Connecticut, USA. The pair hit it off straight away and became quickly besotted with each other.

“He was such a gentleman. He showered me with jewellery,” Ms Lanchester told The Mirror. “We would go out for a posh dinner on the tenth of every month to celebrate the day we got together.”

But Ms Lanchester was studying abroad on a student visa and when her time in America came to an end, she and Mr Blandford said a tearful goodbye at the airport. Her tears soon became smiles though, when he went down on one knee and proposed.

“I said yes straight away,” she said. “I was super happy and smiling like an idiot.”

She still had to return to England, but Mr Blandford promised to visit in a few months and the couple began planning their wedding. Or so she thought.

While Ms Lanchester booked venues, spent over $1000 on invitations and shopped for her dream gown, Mr Blandford cancelled plane tickets and called to apologise. To placate his fiancee, he set the wedding date for August 15, 2014.

“All I ever did was love him,” said heartbroken Alex. “After this I’m not sure I can trust a man ever again.”

“It may be our wedding day but I’m going to spend it making my own awesome memories — without him.”
