Heinz Winkler’s family is in mourning. His ex-wives and his latest partner also came to the late star chef’s funeral, but not together.
Heinz Winkler died suddenly on October 28 at the age of 73. Now, nearly a month later, the celebrity chef has been buried. His family gathered in the cemetery of his house on Lake Chiemsee to say goodbye, according to “Bild”.
The paper counted 400 mourners, including the deceased restaurateur’s sons, 43-year-old Alexander and 14-year-old Constantin. However, particular attention was paid to four women: Daniela, the widow, Evi and Denise, his ex-wives, and Alicia Maas, Winkler’s 26-year-old girlfriend.
Daniela and the family are in crisis, introduced to
Funeral not as a unit. The 61-year-old was said to have been banned from Winkler’s Restaurant Residenz. Marianne Lauber, who was Winkler’s closest confidante for more than 20 years, explains to the newspaper: “Daniela saw through the family, it was always about money, Heinz Winkler wanted a divorce.” The deceased issued the 58-year-old with a “general power of attorney and power of attorney beyond death” in June this year.
After the 73-year-old’s sudden death last month, police initially launched an investigation to clarify the exact circumstances. The restaurant owner fell to his death after drinking alcohol with an employee.
However, after the autopsy, a police spokeswoman confirmed to t-online that Winkler died of natural causes. There is an “internal medical cause”. “From the point of view of the police, the procedure is complete. The body has been released and can be buried,” she said.
