Death of Mitch McConnell’s Sister-in-Law 'Under Criminal Investigation’

The death of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s sister-in-law, Angela Chao, has been placed under “criminal investigation,” according to reports.

Chao was “found dead in her sinking vehicle in a pond on a ranch in Johnson City, near Austin, on Feb. 11,” the New York Post reported.

She was the CEO of the dry bulk shipping company Foremost Group in New York.

Police are now investigating her death as a possible crime.

The ranch where Chao crashed her car is owned by a corporation connected to Chao’s husband, Jim Breyer.

“The deputies were in the water standing on what they believed was the vehicle, trying to gain access to the possible victim inside the vehicle,” fire Lt. Royce Penshorn in the report.

Fox News reports:

A Blanco County Sheriff’s Office statement to the Austin American-Statesman Thursday said emergency medical services personnel attempted to save her but that Chao “succumbed from being under the water.”

Several media reports say a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton from BCSO details the crash, saying it “was not a typical accident.”

Chao was chair and CEO of Foremost Group, a company founded by her parents in 1964 in New York. She worked her way up to leading the company in 2018, previously serving as vice president, concentrating on ship operations and management, and later promoted to senior vice president with additional responsibilities, according to Foremost Group’s website.

Chao earned a bachelor’s degree in economics after graduating Magna cum Laude from Harvard after just three years. She later attended Harvard Business School.

Foremost Group said in a statement.:

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

McConnell said Angela’s death has been difficult for him and his wife.

“This has been a particularly difficult time for my family,” he said.

“We tragically lost Elaine’s younger sister Angela, just a few weeks ago,” he added.

“When you lose a loved one, particularly at a young age, there’s a certain introspection that accompanies the grieving process.”

Her father, Dr. James SC Chao, said in a statement following her death:

“Losing her at such a young age is something we never even imagined, and our entire family is devastated with grief.”

He added that his daughter had a “fierce intellectual curiosity that endeared her to everyone and helped her excel at everything she did.”
