(CNN) - A week after the body of a 27-year-old woman was found at the home of beer tycoon August Busch IV, Missouri police have released the 911 call from the incident.

"This girl is not waking up," Michael Jung, a home staff employee at the Busch estate, told the operator in the early morning hours of December 19.

"Is she breathing"? the 911 operator asked.

"We don't know," Jung replied. "It's dark. I'm going to get a light to see." The call ended after the operator told Jung that an ambulance had been sent to the property.

Frontenac, Missouri, police officers got the 911 call at 1:12 p.m. December 19, said the town's police chief, Thomas Becker.

Paramedics and police officers arrived eight minutes later to find Adrienne Nicole Martin dead, "with no apparent signs of trauma or other indications of cause of death," Becker said.

Busch's lawyer, Art Margulis, on Friday described Martin as a friend of his client's. Frontenac police have confirmed that Busch was home when Martin died.

"There's absolutely nothing here that would indicate that this occurred under any suspicious circumstances," said Margulis. "It's a tragic death of a ... very nice young lady."

Police in Frontenac, where the home is located, said they are investigating the death with help from the St. Louis County medical examiner. The community of about 3,500 people is 11 miles west of St. Louis, Missouri.
