Man who died aboard Aer Lingus passenger had £43k worth of drugs in stomach before he died

More details have emerged about the 24 year old Brazillian passenger who howled and shook violently as he lay dying in the aisle of an Aer Lingus flight is believed to have had £43,000 worth of drugs in his stomach. His name is John Kennedy dos Santos Gurjao.
John who was accused of biting a passenger before dying on that Aer Lingus flight after cocaine pellets burst in his stomach has been pictured for the first time.

His heartbroken family members took to Facebook to pay tribute to him.
A Portuguese woman who is believed to have been travelling with him and had an Angolan passport was arrested after two kilos of a ‘powdered substance’ were found in luggage when the flight was rerouted to Cork.
As a post-mortem was carried out on John's body last night, a source revealed:
“It’s feared he may have had up to €60,000 worth of drugs in his stomach.” “It’s very sad. It’s early days but this is a line of enquiry.
“Gardai have spent a lot of time trying to get in touch with his family through the embassy. “All lines of enquiry are being vigorously pursued.”
A shocked witness described his “violent” and “troubled” death on board the Dublin to Portugal flight after he began to act violently and bit another passenger an hour after take-off.
The Dublin to Lisbon plane had to be re-routed to Cork after the man began to act erratically.

Detectives later discovered the “powdered substance” in a passenger's luggage.
The Portuguese tourist, who was travelling on an Angolan passport, was last night being questioned at Togher Garda station in Cork.
The substance, believed to be amphetamines, has been sent to the State Laboratory for analysis.

Last night it also emerged that the woman travelling with the Angolan Passport has been living in Dublin for several years. The woman is said to be involved in several businesses in the capital, including as a consultant selling visas for non-EU residents.

Audio from the cockpit has also emerged, and revealed the chaos that broke out.
The captain can be heard giving the official emergency “Pan Pan” message three times as he informed air traffic controllers of the incident.

Those on the ground are heard asking if they need two ambulances or two separate emergency crews.
The pilot responded: “It’s a passenger running amok.
“He’s injured one or two passengers, so I’d say it might be better to have them separated.
As the situation escalated, he added: “The doctors are saying they’re not getting any pulse now on our gentleman.”
