Adrienne N. Martin, the girlfriend of beer tycoon August Busch IV, was found dead at the Busch family mansion on December 19, and RadarOnline.com has obtained the the amazingly calm 911 call placed from the scene.
On the call, a man is heard saying “Ahh, uhhh, she, this girl is just not waking up. We can’t get her to …” The dispatcher then asks the caller if the woman is still breathing, to which he says “yeah, we don’t know. It’s dark back there. I’m going to get a light and try and see.”
The call was made by Michael Jung, an employee at the estate, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting.
The emergency call was not made until 42 minutes after Martin’s body was found, the police have revealed.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the 27-year-old girlfriend of August Busch IV was found dead at the beer baron’s home in a mystery that includes no readily apparent cause of death, a days-long delay by authorities in releasing confirmation of the death and an unnamed police source telling the local paper that the investigation includes looking at a possible drug overdose.
Bush, 46, was dating Martin for about a year, according to AP. She died December 19 at his St. Louis-area gated home and Busch was there at the time, several sources have reported.
Art Margulis, an attorney for Busch said that there was nothing suspicious about the death. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which broke the story, questions why the police took so long to release information about the death.

Police are investigating the death along with the St. Louis County Medical Examiner. Autopsy results could take six weeks to complete.
Busch was CEO of Anheuser-Busch from 2006 to 2008, when the company was sold.
He’s had several previous encounters with law enforcement. In 1985, he was acquitted by a jury on three counts of assault after a high speed chase with police. It ended with cops shooting out one of his tires.
Busch was also investigated in the 1983 death of a woman when he was a student at the University of Arizona and crashed his Corvette. His passenger, Michelle Frederick died. Busch was located at his home six hours later, dazed. He had a fractured skull and said he had amnesia.
He was not charged after a seven-month investigation but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that authorities had to fight the rich and powerful family’s lawyers the whole way.
Authorities “said the investigation took so long because of the high profile of the Busch family and because family lawyers had fought the taking of hair and fiber samples from Busch,” the paper reported.
Martin is divorced and has a son, 8.
