What Did She Know? Death of Mitch McConnell’s Sister-in-Law Being Investigated as a Crime

Editor’s Note: This news will be buried quickly. It already appeared and quickly disappeared from Google News. Most major corporate news outlets are ignoring it. When the death of a relative of one of the most powerful men in America is being investigated as a possible murder, one would think journalists would cover it.

Nope. Not in 2024 America. Here’s the article generated from scant corporate media reporting…

The death of Angela Chao, CEO of the New York-based Foremost Group, sister to former U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and sister-in-law to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is now being investigated as a crime following a car crash in Texas, according to recent reports.

Chao, 50, was found dead in her sinking vehicle in a pond on a ranch in Johnson City, near Austin, on February 11. The ranch is reportedly owned by a corporation connected to her husband, Jim Breyer.

Emergency medical services personnel attempted to save her, but unfortunately, as stated by the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office in a statement to the Austin American-Statesman, she “succumbed from being under the water.”

Multiple media reports have highlighted a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton from the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office, which described the crash as “not a typical accident.”

Chao was the chair and CEO of the Foremost Group, a company her parents founded in 1964. She had worked her way up through the ranks, previously serving as vice president and focusing on ship operations and management, before being promoted to senior vice president with additional responsibilities. She eventually became CEO in 2018.

Chao graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor’s degree in economics, graduating magna cum laud in just three years, and later attended Harvard Business School, where she wrote a case study on “Ocean Carriers” that became part of the required curriculum for first-year HBS students.

In June 2016, she was appointed Chair of the U.S. Risk and Management Committee of Bank of China U.S.A.

Throughout her career, Chao had numerous honors and served on various boards, including the American Bureau of Shipping Council and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s International Maritime Business Department Advisory Board.

Foremost Group released a statement saying, “She will be greatly missed and leaves a legacy of pioneering leadership — especially for women — in shipping, philanthropy, and the arts.”
