HUNTLEIGH — Authorities are investigating the death of a 27-year-old woman whose body was found at the suburban St. Louis home of former Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV.

Police and the St. Louis County medical examiner's office on Thursday identified the victim as Adrienne Martin of St. Charles. An autopsy has been conducted but results could take 4 to 6 weeks.

Police were called Sunday afternoon to the home in the St. Louis suburb of Huntleigh and found Martin's body. St. Louis County forensic administrator Suzanne McCune says there were no signs of trauma.

An attorney for Busch says Martin was a friend who was visiting the home.

Busch is 46 and was chief executive at Anheuser-Busch from 2006 until the company was purchased by InBev in 2008.
