A young woman from the UK was exposed to more pain and heartache than anyone should have to when her fiance faked his own suicide in an effort to get out of their wedding. Alex Lanchester was living in the UK and planning to return to the states when she received a call from her fiance, Tucker’s father reporting that he had committed suicide. Struck with grief, Alex called Tucker’s mother to offer condolences and mourn to which she received a nasty shock–Tucker was ALIVE!
"I'd never been in love like that before. I met his family and they treated me like a daughter. His mum and I became so close."
But Tucker had a solution to that - he asked her to marry him. "I said yes straight away," she says. "I was super happy and smiling like an idiot."
Tucker also promised to fly out to see her the following month.
She says: "I went all out even though I had hardly any money."
She had also spent £600 on wedding invitations, the photographer and other essentials.
But just a week before Tucker was due to arrive, Alex received the chilling phone call.
