Grieving dad travels 1,500 kilometers to confront Ukrainian
THE grieving dad of a woman that is young by banned diet pills this week travelled 1,500 kilometers to search for the Ukrainian dealer who offered them.
Doug Shipsey secured a confession that is extraordinary fitness center fanatic Andrei Shepelev after confronting him on the loss of child Beth.
She passed away aged 21 in February 2017 after using alleged «fat burning» pills delivered by Shepelev – pills that professionals have called «extremely dangerous».
After 2 yrs of fighting for justice, Mr Shipsey reached Shepelev’s grimy Soviet-era flat — later on admitting he feared he will be shot, the regular Mail reports.
But keeping a photo of Beth, he fearlessly told the dealer that is dishevelled «we want you to appear into my daughter’s eyes and apologise for attempting to sell her the pills that killed her.»
Standing at the home of their grimy Breaking drug that is bad-style, Shepelev, 31, responded: «I’m sorry, but i recently desired to earn some cash.»
He included: «I’m sorry I’m maybe not crying, but I’m able to say personally i think sorry.
«If we knew your daughter would die I would personally never offer her anything.»
Shepelev admitted processing the lethal chemical that killed Beth — delivery it to her in capsules concealed in a DVD situation.
And prompted by Mr Shipsey, whom travelled from Worcester, the dealer also produced apology that is personal Beth’s mother Carole.
He included: «it absolutely was simply a small business concept buying Ukranian stuff that is cheap offer it towards the UK, simply for cash.»
However in a strange effort at compassion, Shepelev said: «After fatalities, product sales rise 4 or 5 times, but i did son’t offer towards the British after this minute.»
