'Ugly' husband who died under surgeon's scalpel was afraid of losing wife

AN Irishman who died while having extensive plastic surgery in Colombia was 'paranoid' his looks would lose him his Venezuelan wife. Pierre Christian Lawlor (33), of Belarmine Place, Stepaside, Dublin, went under the knife because he was convinced he was 'fat and ugly and had big ears'. He feared his young wife, Andrea Galeano, who was 23 when he died, would 'go off with one of his friends' because 'that had happened his parents'. The inquest also heard that Mr Lawlor's sister Claudine did not believe her brother died as she had been told by a 'trusted' psychic that he had in fact been murdered in Colombia. Ms Galeano told an inquest into her husband's death that she pleaded with him not to go ahead with the drastic operation but he refused to listen. He paid €3,500 to have liposuction and numerous nips and tucks to his face and neck during a trip to Bogota.
His wife, who met Pierre over the internet, believes he took cocaine and drank at an Irish bar the day before he died. She was at his side when he died on September 3 last year after a heart attack.
