We also both think the world of August,” Kevin Martin said. “He is a good man.”
25 December, 2010
Adrienne Nicole Martin, a former Hooters waitress, found dead at the home of August Anheuser Busch IV (born June 15, 1964) the great-great-grandson of Anheuser-Busch founder Adolphus Busch,Dec. 24- Dr. Kevin J. Martin, M.D., B.Ch., B.AO.:University College Dublin Medical School Dublin Ireland, 1971, who now lives in Cape Girardeau, Mo., said that he does not know his ex-wife’s cause of death but said that she had a heart condition called Long QT syndrome. The heart rhythm disorder can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats that can, in some cases, cause sudden death.
Martin said he discovered the syndrome when he did an electrocardiogram on his wife shortly after they wed in 2002. He said that his wife didn’t tell others of her condition and that he hasn’t discussed it with authorities.
“She refused to see a cardiologist about it,” Martin said. “I’ve always suspected she thought I was overreacting.”
He and Adrienne Martin had been separated since February 2009, and their split was anything but amicable, according to their divorce file. They had joint custody of their son.
“We also both think the world of August,” Kevin Martin said. “He is a good man.”
Martin said he had met Busch “months ago” — and that Busch personally called him on Sunday to tell him of the death.
Martin said he was in Springfield, Mo., with his former in-laws visiting his son for the holidays. He said his son was in Springfield when Adrienne died.
