London, Dec 25 (ANI): A glamorous aspiring model has been found dead at the luxury home of August Busch IV in Missouri.

Busch is the scion of the brewing dynasty most famous for Budweiser, its iconic American beer.

Adrienne Martin, 27, is reported to have been dating Busch, 46, the former chief executive of Anheuser-Busch, for a year.

Forensic officials said there were no signs of illness or trauma but autopsy results could take four to six weeks after she was found at the luxury home in a gated community in an upmarket suburb of St Louis, Missouri.

Police did not say if the death was considered suspicious. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch quoted an unnamed law enforcement source as saying the case was being investigated as a possible overdose.

Martin had previously posted sultry posed pictures on a website, saying that she was studying to be an art therapist and was hoping to become a model.

“I really would like to do beer advertising! Since I have only just begun I can’t wait for my exciting times ahead!” she wrote.

It was not known if Busch was at his home at the time of Martin’s death or when emergency services were called.

“I can tell you there is absolutely nothing suspicious about her passing, and it’s a tragic and untimely death of a young person. A very kind young person, by the way, ” the Telegraph quoted Art Margulis, a lawyer for Busch, as saying.

It is the second time the great-great-grandson of Anheuser-Busch founder Adolphus Busch has been linked to the death of a young woman, according to several media reports. (ANI)
