Johnson & Johnson Heiress Found Dead

210cjtt.jpgCasey Johnson, who recently made headlines when she became engaged to Tila Tequila, was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Monday morning. The cause of death has not yet been determined, but TMZ is reporting that Johnson had diabetes and twice in the past had fallen into diabetic comas. The LAPD is investigating, but say there is no sign of foul play. From the LA Times:

Johnson was the daughter of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson. In a statement issued Monday night, her family asked for privacy “during this very difficult time,” according to the Associated Press.

Johnson was friends with several young Hollywood celebrities, who express sadness at her untimely passing.

“I feel so sad right now, my heart is in pain. Just lost a longtime friend. My heart goes out to her family. R.I.P. Casey Johnson,” Paris Hilton wrote on her Twitter page. “In bed crying, looking at baby pictures of Casey, Nicky and I. I feel so upset. I feel like I’ve lost a sister. My heart is broken.”

Tila Tequila, who starred on an MTV reality show, wrote on her Twitter page, “Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support.”
