Dead woman had heart condition
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday that Dr. Kevin Martin diagnosed his then-wife with a heart rhythm disorder called Long QT syndrome in 2002. But, he said, Adrienne Martin did not go to a cardiologist in connection with that diagnosis.
Mrs. Martin was found dead Dec. 19 at Mr. Busch’s mansion in suburban St. Louis. The newspaper also cited information from officials in saying it took someone at the home more than 40 minutes to call 911 after Mrs. Martin was found dead.
Officials said an initial autopsy was inconclusive and didn’t reveal signs of trauma to her body or obvious natural causes of death.
Spider-Man actor up after surgery
NEW YORK — The stunt actor who fell 30 feet while playing Spider-Man on Broadway is walking again, and his father said he can’t wait to return to the role.
Christopher Tierney’s father said the actor walked Friday for the first time since his fall during Monday’s performance of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”
Tim Tierney said Christmas morning from his home in Portsmouth, N.H., his son was spending the holiday with his mother and brother in the hospital while recovering from back surgery. He said director Julie Taymor went to visit his son in the hospital on Christmas Eve.
“Spider-Man” is the most expensive Broadway show ever. It had to cancel two preview performances after the actor’s fall. It had a scheduled night off on Friday but returned to the stage Christmas night.
