The death of a couple who were last seen walking barefoot along a dual carriageway, has left investigators baffled.
An inquest is currently being held into how and why engaged couple Nonita Karajevaite, 24, and Tadas Zaleskas, 26, were hit by the same car while walking along the A47 on July 20 last year.
According to the Mail Online, the inquest was told how the couple had taken a cocktail of drugs, including amphetamines and cannabis, then posted their keys through their home letterbox in Emneth, near Wisbech and dismantled their mobile phones.
However, on their bizarre trek, they left their possessions on the side of the road and were seen at a shop where they both asked an assistant to contact the police, before they hugged and walked away hand-in-hand.
They were last seen by a motorist on the eastbound carriageway of the A47 before they were struck by the same car at Terrington St John, near King’s Lynn, at about 2.15pm.
Motorist Joanne Ayres, who drove by the couple on the A47, said:
They were determined in their manner, intent on getting somewhere. The woman could not carry herself and the man was supporting her with his arm around her waist. I thought they were putting themselves in danger from other motorists on such a busy road.
Nonita’s sister described the tragic couple, who were due to be married on September 6 that year, as “happy” but at the time of their deaths, witnesses claimed to have seen Tadas push his fiancée, before himself being hit by the car.
Nobody seems to know where the couple were going (or believed they were going) on the day they died.
The case was closed by police earlier this year, while the inquest has now been adjourned to a date to be fixed.
