Jheryl Busby, a music executive who led a revival of Motown Records while president and chief executive of the company from 1988 to 1995, was found dead Tuesday in a hot tub at his home in Malibu. He was 59.

“It appears it could be a possible accident, or he died of natural causes,” Ed Winter, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said Wednesday. An autopsy was planned.
