Because 27 Year Old Aspiring Models Drop Dead All the Time

Being born and raised in St. Louis, I’ve followed the Busch family closely. A surprising number of people have died in their mansions and estates over the years, and it looks like another person has suffered the same fate.

The woman, Adrienne Nicole Martin, was Busch’s girlfriend and there was “absolutely nothing suspicious” about her death, said Busch’s attorney, Art Margulis.

The 27-year-old woman was dead when police and paramedics responded to a 911 call from Busch’s estate Sunday in Huntleigh, a wealthy St. Louis suburb. St. Louis County forensic administrator Suzanne McCune said there were no signs of trauma or illness, and an overdose was among the possible causes of death.

Absolutely nothing suspicious about a 27 year old woman dying? Excuse me? The Busch family is the closest thing to royalty there is in Missouri, so it’s not surprising to a cynic that no one in the family has done time for murder or manslaughter. A few calls to politicians here, a few donations there and you have a 27 year old woman dying of natural causes.

Perhaps that is because dying at the hands of a Busch has happened so often that it is now a natural way to go in St. Louis County.

UPDATE: The St. Louis Post Dispatch has more on the history of the Busch “tragedies.”

    I have also known the Busch family for a very long time. Had dinners and meetings with the 3rd. and also worked for his father and son. They are a no nonsence
    family.
    If the girl died from an OD it is to bad but if you are going to do drugs it is always best if you know how to do them.

    Proud to know the Busch family

    Rick
    I’m reminded of an old saying about dynasties: The first generation builds the empire, the second generation consolidates the empire, the third generation loses the empire.
    The Busch family added another generation somewhere between the one and third generations.

    I am not antagonistic to the Fourth simply because he’s wealthy; I’m merely questioning the leap to “natural causes” in the death of a 27 year old. I believe that’s acceptable given his past – the Chappaquiddick-like circumstances around the death of Michele Frederick.

    A Busch should be treated by the Law exactly the same way as a Smith, a Johnson or a Kirwin. And I would hope that he or she would have enough sense to recognize that a dead 27 year old is “suspicious” whether her body is found at a mansion in Huntleigh or a crack house in North St. Louis.
