(Newser) – The dead woman found at the home of ex-Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV accidentally overdosed on the painkiller oxycodone, the medical examiner said yesterday. Friends previously said Adrienne Martin, 27, was firmly against illegal drugs, but Busch had speculated medication she was taking could be to blame for her death. His attorney says Busch did not know she was taking oxycodone, the AP reports. The forensics administrator wouldn’t say if any other drugs were in Martin’s system, and the full report won’t be released until the investigation into her death is complete.

Overdosing on Oxycodone? How much did she take at once, or was this from long term abuse because this has been prescribed/abused for decades?

"Friends previously said Adrienne Martin, 27, was firmly against illegal drugs." Of course she was. Her sugar daddy got the bills paid by selling the legal ones.
