Johnson & Johnson Heiress Casey Johnson Found Dead!

Casey Johnson, heiress to the Johnson and Johnson fortune and most currently Tila Tequila's fiancé, was found dead in Los Angeles on Monday.

Casey was 30 years old. Her cause of death is currently unknown, but Casey had a troubled past. Most recently she was arrested for grand theft and the alleged victim was reportedly her ex-girlfriend, Courtenay Semel.

Casey had adopted a little girl, Eva, from Kazakhstan two years ago but lost custody of her daughter due to erratic behavior. Her daughter was staying with her mother, Sale Johnson.

In December, Casey flew to New York to try to get her daughter back, but was denied custody again.

According to the New York Post, Johnson's father, New York Jet owner Woody Johnson, had recently restricted Casey's access to funds because she wouldn't get her life together. She had been in rehab several times but was unable to clean up her act.

TMZ spoke to Tila Tequila who says that she had gotten into an argument with Casey last week and she left the house. She says that she tried contacting Casey on the 29th but her phone had been shut off since the 29th.

She last tweeted on December 29 at 1:13 AM.

Tila just updated her Twitter with the following message:

"Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson," Tequila wrote. "She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w/ family."'

According to People magazine, Los Angeles police and firefighters were called to a house at 11:51 a.m. on Monday. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It appears to be a natural death," says police Officer Sara Faden. "There's no evidence of foul play. A toxicology report from the coroner's office will proceed next."

There's nothing "natural" about a 30 year old passing away. Casey's long history of drug abuse may have resulted in her death, but we won't know details until the toxicology report comes in. Rest in peace Casey!
