Johnson & Johnson Heiress Dies

1/4/2010 9:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Johnson, an heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, has died .. TMZ has learned.

She died in L.A. We're told the body was discovered this morning.

She was 30 years old. Her father is Woody Johnson -- owner of the New York Jets.

Johnson was arrested in November for grand theft -- the alleged victim was a former girlfriend.

Johnson was reportedly engaged to Tila Tequila. We spoke with Tila a few minutes ago. She says they were fighting last week and that Casey stayed at Tila's house on the 28th. Tila tried contacting Casey on the 29th because Casey had left her dogs behind. Tila says Casey's phone has been shut off since the 29th and she was not able to make contact.

Johnson -- who tweeted frequently -- last tweeted on December 29 at 1:13 AM.

The cause of death is undetermined.

UPDATE: A law enforcement source tells TMZ it appears Johnson had been dead for several days before her body was discovered.

UPDATE: The LAPD has opened a death investigation.

well, first Brittany Murphy and now Casey Johnson. If theory holds up, there will be one more death, as it seems like famous stars always go in threes,(as in Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and Buddy Holly. and more recently Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Patrick Swayze). No matter her problems, people should remember that she was a daughter, grand-daughter, mother (maybe be debateable), friend, ect., and they are mourning her death.

I read Tila Tequila's twitter messages on another article, and it is, quite frankly, sickening. "We were a lovely couple...", then she's all, "She's passed away... not dead but in a coma.. almost home baby hang on...RIP." It was like her own little soap opera that she was playing out. Also, who the hell sends that many tweets after their "fiancee" dies? I think it's very tacky.

I truly feel sorry for her, her family, and her friends. Sometimes people with money need the most help of all.

Surprised    

It is amazing that socialite Casey Johnson dies and nobody finds out until seven (7!!!) days later.
(Wait, take a second) Seven days later. This makes me re-analyze our “fast food” society. The disposable and superficial bonds of dysfunctional celeb lives that are recorded, televised, popularized and feed intravenously to our homes via media.
(Wait, take a second) This is not a society; it’s an asocial epidemic. Where relationships are little more than symbiotic, at best; and only exist to feed our own selfish interests. (Wait, take a second) This concept is being repeatedly perpetuated into our lives, our minds, and homes; only to be casted off as normal. When, in reality, it is far beyond the realm of normality.
(Wait, take a second) It is not normal for someone to die and have no one bat an eyelash until your smell is too much to bear. It is not normal for someone to die and have their “loving spouse” find out 7 days later. How sad it is to see that in the new age of instant messages and super cell phones that there is still a chance of being so disconnected. And how apathy still runs deep in our most meaningful relationships.

I’m not trying to being insensitive, but thank you Casey Johnson. For serving as
My condolence to Casey Johnson’s loved ones. (Whoever they may be) a lesson to me on cherishing my small family and close knit friends. Who called the cops when I didn’t answer the phone one day.
