Businessman Mario Oliver Jutard, one of Estefanía de Mónaco’s ex-boyfriends, was found dead and with signs of violence in the house he had in Las Terrenas, Samaná, according to international media reports.
Jutard, with whom the princess had an affair in the 1980s, was killed after allegedly assailants entered his house and took valuables, including Rolex watches.
As reported by doctors and agents who attended the scene, his death was caused by a head injury and manual compression of the neck.
However, at the moment there is no official report and the Institute of Forensic Sciences of San Francisco de Macorís is performing an autopsy to clarify the fact.
The businessman was well known in American society for having run clubs such as Vertigo and The Gate, as well as restaurants including Tryst, Le Petit Four and Linq.
However, the beginning of his popularity dates back four decades, when his name made several headlines due to his sentimental relationship with the youngest daughter of the then Monegasque sovereign and the remembered Grace Kelly.
He posed on several occasions with Estefania de Monaco, they were seen at Roland Garros and he was even in Monte Carlo and met Prince Rainier. In addition, he took the princess to live in Los Angeles, where he settled in 1981 to succeed as a businessman.
Before he was a model in Paris and entered the world of nightclubs as a DJ. The paths of the couple parted ways and went along different paths. Mario Oliver was divorced twice, as was Alberto de Monaco’s sister.
