British police are investigating the possibility that heiress Eva Rausing may have died of a drug overdose up to a week before her body was found by police.

She was discovered dead Tuesday at her multimillion dollar London home.

Eva's husband, UK billionaire Hans Kristian Rausing, 49, is still being treated in hospital today after being arrested on Tuesday when detectives discovered the body of Eva, 48, during a bedroom search of the couple’s home.

He had been stopped for driving erratically earlier in the day and found to have drugs on his person. He is being investigated in her death.

As part of the investigation into what detectives are describing as Eva's “unexplained” death, they are examining how long she might have lain dead and why.

A postmortem Tuesday proved inconclusive and further tests are being carried out to establish the cause of death, which could've taken place up to a week ago.

Police from the London Metropolitan police’s homicide and serious crime command unit have yet to interview Rausing, who remains under arrest but had been transferred to the hospital for treatment, with police officers present.

Eva and Hans were both friends of Prince Charles. She was a trustee of and major donor to his pet architecture charity, The Prince's Foundation for Building Community, and was a co-patron of Action on Addiction with Kate Middleton.

Comic-Con isn't even underway yet, but it's already making news, and in the worst possible way: Tuesday, a woman was struck by a car and killed in San Diego while waiting in line to see some of her favorite actors from Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate released a joint statement today:

"Lionsgate, Summit and the entire Twilight community are saddened by the death of a Comic-Con fan today due to a traffic accident leading up to this year's convention in San Diego. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim's family and friends."

"She will be respectfully remembered this Thursday in Hall H."

Twilight, Tokyo Premiere

The Twilight fan community responded just as quickly. Hours after the news of the tragedy broke, "RIPTwiFanG" was trending worldwide on Twitter.

It is unclear how the victim, a 53-year-old woman, will be recognized during the panel, but hopefully fans observe caution from here on out.

It's not uncommon for fans to stand in line for days just to get into to the San Diego Convention Center and capture a glimpse of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene & Co., and who can blame them.

But be careful people. Let this Comic-Con death be the last.

If you thought the floor of the U.S. Congress was a dysfunctional war zone, this may restore your faith in our government somewhat: Mohammed Shawabka, a member of Jordan's parliament, recently threw a shoe and pulled a gun in a LIVE TV debate.

Shawabka heaved his shoe and then pointed his piece at Mansour Seif-Eddine Murad, an activist-turned-politician, during a TV debate about the violence in Syria. 

You gotta see this:

Reports say heated words were exchanged, with Murad eventually accusing Shawabka of being an Israeli Mossad agent and a thief. That was the last straw.

Shawabka threw his shoe at Murad, who dodged with aplomb, and then pulled a gun. Furniture started flying and the terrified host tried to separate them.

And... end credits!

The AP reports that Shawabka is being investigated for his role in the altercation, which fortunately ended with no one injured or killed. Shocking.

North Korea's image makeover may entail allowing such luxuries as pizza and earrings into the country, but make no mistake, their propaganda machine is still firing on all cylinders: Kim Jong Un now has his own theme song.

Yes, the supreme leader/dictator/whatever has a theme song.

Unlike the songs honoring his late father (Kim Jong Il) and grandfather (Kim Il Sung), Kim Jong Un’s theme doesn’t mention the "Great Successor" by name,

Instead, the song is basically a mashup/remix of one of his speeches. “Onwards Toward the Final Victory,” takes its name from a speech he gave in April.

The theme song is part of a concerted effort to build up the image of relative newcomer Kim Jong Un, 28, who recently assumed power in the rogue state.

“Onwards Toward the Final Victory,” is catchy enough to be a Selena Gomez track, but this is North Korea, so you can't believe anything it says lyrically.

In articles-that-are-somehow-real-and-not-from-the-Onion news, a man who owed over $32,000 in child support was recently lured out of hiding.

With the promise of a role in a new Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy.

After getting a call from the film's "producers," Joshua Garlathy didn’t think twice about leaving his Hawaii hideout and heading back to Allentown, Pa.

Jennifer Aniston's Hair

There, his ex-girlfriend had spent 19 YEARS trying to get Garlathy to pay the money he owes to support their kid to no avail ... until an idea struck.

The “producer” was actually bounty hunter Scott Bernstein, and Banished in Brooklyn - in which Garlathy would play “a small part as a guitar-strumming bad guy by the name of Dirty Nick” - is not a real movie, though it sounds right up Jen's alley.

Hope Dog Chapman is taking notes.

Amazingly, this is not the first plot of its kind. In Alabama, Operation Iron Snare rounded up deadbeat parents with Alabama-Auburn football tickets.

The pacu, a non-native toothy fish found in Illinois' Lake Lou Yaeger recently, can weigh up to 55 pounds and is known to eat nuts ... in more ways than one.

Responding to a report that a fisherman had reeled in a piranha there June 7, officials identified as a pacu. Another pacu was seen a couple of weeks later.

Pacus primarily eat nuts, aquatic vegetation and snails, wildlife experts told KDSK, and pose no real threat to humans ... well, most of the time at least.

Residents of Papua New Guinea may beg to differ.

There, according to British fisherman Jeremy Wade, the pacu is known as the "ball cutter" because ... well you can probably figure that one out, right?

In 2011, Wade said locals informed him that two fisherman had died from blood loss after something in the water had bitten off their testicles. Ouch.

"The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen," Wade said, noting that such attacks are uncommon.

One can only hope.

With the zombie apocalypse reportedly upon us (we're just not buying all this bath salts baloney), it's time to consider your options ... on the real estate front.

Tip #1: The undead do not like water, allegedly.

If you want to ensure any Rudy Eugene-like characters with a thirst for human flesh don't get anywhere near you and your family, this house is for you:

Zombie fortress

For a modest $10.5 million, you can't put a price on safety.

The symmetrical, moat-surrounded palace lacks a working drawbridge, but blocking the only path that leads into the compound would be easy enough.

Or destroying it. Do what you gotta do.

BONUS: Birdman filmed a music video here, so there’s likely to be some firearms on the premises. That's just the way Lil Wayne's crew rolls after all.

NASA has released a new photo from its Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, showing where the robot spent the four-month Martian winter in panoramic splendor.

No aliens were spotted, just spectacular views of the red planet.

If you thought your winter was bad ... imagine being 50,000,000 miles further away from the Sun than we are on Earth. Hope the Opportunity brought a jacket.

The full-scale photo, which is actually a combination of 817 pics shot by the panoramic camera (Pancam) can be seen on NASA's website. Here's a preview:

A controversial documentary about an alleged cover-up surrounding Princess Diana's death in 1997 is being shelved indefinitely by the film's producers.

Unlawful Killing raised some major conspiracy theories reagarding the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Princess Di and passenger Dodi Al-Fayed.

A lot of blame was even placed on the Royal Family.

Lady Di

The film was a four-year project financed by Al-Fayed's father and was sold last year to foreign markets at the Cannes Film Festival for 2012 distribution.

The UK was not one of those markets, of course ... but in any case, the film about the demise of Prince William and Harry's mother has now been axed.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the issue was insurance. The celebrity news site claims no company would provide the producers with a policy to protect against lawsuits that potentially could occur due to the film's controversial content.

The producer says, "It became undoable. We are all disappointed."

Britney Marshall, a 14-year-old from Nottinghamshire, England, is the youngest of five girls in her family ... and the only one without breast implants.

Her mother, Chantal Marshall, wants to change that.

The elder Marshall told the Sun (UK), "Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn’t want to get her boobs done."

Marshall really wishes she would, she openly admits.

"At the moment she doesn’t really have what I would say are boobs. I’d like her to follow in her sisters’ footsteps... I really love the fake look of my girls."

"I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older."

Chantal and her four other daughters collectively own $50,000 worth of fake boobs, with sizes ranging from 32DD (Ripley, 21) to 34HH (Terri, 27).

But Britney Marshall is determined to stay au naturel... for now. It seems Britney's brothers provide an alternative perspective on the matter.

According to the Daily Mail, Chantal Marshall admitted, "Some of my sons think we’re crazy... They keep telling Britney she should be different."

Listen to your brothers, Britney. Please.
