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.

@#48..you are so right.

I just came from Tila's blog and evidently she just found out about Casey and is asking everyone to pray for her "wifey". Tila is such a liar. When her and Casey got together, she couldn't stop talking about her fiancee who was the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. Tila made sure we knew that.

Now Tila is going to say she lost the baby she was carrying for her brother and his wife(I don't believe she was ever pregnant) because she was so upset about losing Casey. I bet her and Casey weren't even together any more. I think everything was a publicity stunt anyway.
