Dead Woman in Home of Bud Heir

The 27-year-old girlfriend of August Busch IV, the former chief executive of Anheuser-Busch, was found dead in Busch's St. Louis home this week. It's not clear what caused her death or whether the beer scion was home at the time. Said Busch's lawyer, "I can tell you there is absolutely nothing suspicious about her passing, and it's a tragic and untimely death of a young person." In 1984, Busch avoid criminal charges after his Corvette crashed in Arizona, killing a 22-year-old woman.
