Huntleigh, MO (KSDK) -- A 27-year-old woman was found dead over the weekend at a home in the Village of Huntleigh belonging to former Anheuser-Busch chief August Busch IV.

According to Frontenac Police Chief Thomas Becker, police were contacted around 1:15 p.m. Sunday in regard to an unresponsive person at a home in the 2800 block of South Lindbergh Boulevard. Paramedics and police officers responded and found the woman dead at the home.

The woman, identified as Adrienne Nicole Martin, did not show any signs of trauma or any other indications of cause of death.  Martin, a would-be model, was from the St. Louis area and wanted to be involved in beer advertising, according to a post on the website iStudio.com.

An attorney for Busch said Martin was a friend who was visiting the home.  August Busch IV was home when this incident unfolded.

The Frontenac Police Department is investigating the incident in cooperation with the St. Louis County Medical Examiner.  The results of an autopsy will not be ready for another four to six weeks.

August Busch IV, 46, served as chief executive at Anheuser-Busch from 2006 until the company was purchased by InBev in 2008.  He is presently a member of the board of directors for InBev.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
