Woman found dead at home of former Anheuser Busch CEO

27-year-old woman's dead body was found on Sunday December 19, 2010 at the suburban St. Louis home of former Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV.

August Anheuser Busch IV (born June 15, 1964) is the great-great-grandson of Anheuser-Busch founder Adolphus Busch, the son of former chairman, president and CEO August Busch III. On December 1, 2006, he succeeded Patrick Stokes, who held the positions of president and CEO of the company since July 2002.

History with Law

In 1983, while attending the University of Arizona, Busch was involved in a car wreck that killed a young woman riding with him in his Corvette.

Busch was arrested in 1985 after leading police on a high-speed car chase. He was accused of intentionally trying to run over two officers with his Mercedes.  He was acquitted by a St. Louis jury.

Bush was found guilty of another speeding violation, and received a one-year probation.
