Body found in St. Louis home of former beer executive

ST. LOUIS (BestGrowthStock) – Authorities were investigating on Thursday the death of a 27-year woman found at the home of August Busch IV, former chief of the Budweiser beer empire.

The woman was found last Sunday at Busch’s Huntleigh, Mo., estate, but the information was not released until Thursday. An autopsy was ordered with results not due for four to six weeks.

Busch, 46, was CEO of Anheuser-Busch until its $52 billion sale in 2008 to InBev, the Belgian brewer. Since then, Busch has kept a low profile and in January 2009, was divorced from his wife of 2 1/2 years. He is the great-great-grandson of Anheuser-Busch founder Adolphus Busch.

Art Margulis, an attorney for Busch, said there was “absolutely nothing suspicious” about the woman’s death.

A police statement said a 911 call was received at 1:15 p.m. local time Sunday regarding an “unresponsive person” at the home. The unidentified woman was dead when paramedics and officers arrived, the release said.
