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.

I kind of doubt this seeing as Tila has been tweeting all day and she would use any excuse for DRAMA

Casey Johnson, a known drug abuser, was somehow allowed to adopt a little girl, Ava, from Kazakhstan.

Who will care for little Ava now? How many of her lovers are rushing forward to take on an adult responsibility?

Does it make sense that Tila hadn't spoken to her fiance since the 28th, had her dogs, and didn't bother going over to her apartment in all that time to return the dogs/see her fiance etc? very odd.

Just another girl famous for doing nothing... I would feel bad if she'd done anything worth while besides being part of the tila tequila freak circus. She's not a celebrity.
