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.

This should send tila tequila over the edge. Hurry and get her on your dead pool list before it happens, for maximum points.

Damn! I hate hearing when someone is found dead. It makes it seem like no one cared when they were alive.

Someone else said they were concerned about Tila Tequila "making a freak show" out of this. I agree.

I'm not a fan of TT, by any stretch of the imagination. So whether she was engaged or not to Casey, the bitch better be respectful and not turn this into a "it's all about Tila" thing, somehow.

Ugh. I wonder how nasty Tila Tequila is going to spin this for press. Poor Casey, she seemed so unstable. Too bad she didn't get the help she so clearly needed.

Let's see what Tila Tequila has to do with her death. She is at best an extremely questionable, borderline person.

WTH. I thought I would come here and read Artie Lange had died but Casey Johnson. I wonder if it was an overdose and if Tila was involved in any way. This is a shock.
