The death is under investigation.

I wondered how long before someone posted this.

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of a connection to the site, however.

But it is an interesting story on both the "community" and its "residents".

Despite his millions, the man appears to be a GWC.

A guy with that much money can buy his way out of almost anything.
Something smells rotten in Denmark.

You know what is really sad about that article?  It's all about the Busches of St. Louis and very little about Adrienne Nicole Martin.  All we know about her from reading it is that she was his 27 year old "model" girlfriend.  hmm

In 1983, Busch, then a 20-year-old University of Arizona student, left a bar with a 22-year-old woman. His black Corvette crashed and the woman, Michele Frederick, was killed. Busch was found hours later at his home. He suffered a fractured skull and claimed he had amnesia. After a seven-month investigation, authorities declined to press criminal charges, citing a lack of evidence.

So the Busch's manage to kill other people from time to time.

Another St. Louis beer family killed themselves from time to time.

Money & power is a funny thing.....

Her profiles at istudio and OMP appear to have been taken down, perhaps by her next of kin, but Google's cache of her istudio profile reveals her to have been an artistic young woman who's ambitions were to help children who had been traumatized first and foremost, and to pursue a modeling career.  It did say she was particularly interested in posing for beer adverts.

Her bio read,

Adrienne Nicole Martin wrote:
I am currently studying to be an Art Therapist. Don't worry I am getting ready to explain it......As an Art Therapist I would work with children to develop their self-esteem and confidence to get through a difficult time. Children that have been traumatized from rape, child abuse, etc. usually do not want to communicate with adults about what happened to them. These children need to talk in order to get better. By offering a different way to vent; drawing, painting, sculpting an adult can slowly understand what the childs troubles are and strike up conversations with the child from the work in which he/she has created.

Aside from my long-term goal I have been in pageants for several years now and I feel I want to do something more; MODELING! I really would like to to do beer advertising! Since I have only just begun I can't wait for my exciting times ahead!"

Clearly this is an even more tragic loss as she was someone who would have made a positive difference in many lives, young and old.  And of course this is all the more tragic at this time of year...

Fortunately, it does seem that the authorities are making an appropriate investigation into this tragic death.

My condolences and best wishes to her family and friends.

He's rich enought to fracture his own skull to beat the charges.

Can't you see that?
