Another tragedy already this year, Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson was found dead by a maid at her Los Angeles home last Monday, January 4, 2010. It is still unclear what cut Johnson's life short at such a young age. Obviously, the media has gone wild with this news, especially since the announcement of Casey Johnson's engagement to Tila Tequila. In Casey's final days her behavior had become nothing short of erratic, partying out of control in NYC and LA, as well as neglecting bills that no heiress should even be concerned about affording. Her behavior caused her family to use tough love on Casey in order to help her turn her life around.
Casey Johnson suffered from diabetes, having to take insulin shots since she was very young. There have been many reports that claim that her diabetes may have had a part in her death. Unfortunately, the toxicology report may come back positive for substances which are the more likely cause of her death. District attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison said to the AP, "Johnson was recently arrested for investigation of stealing $22,000 in lingerie, mail, jewelry and other items from the Hollywood home of model friend Jasmine Lennard. She pleaded not guilty last month to burglary and receiving stolen property, and had a preliminary hearing scheduled on Feb. 2". Johnson was in a constant struggle to gain more fame and it was eating away at her, she turned to partying to forget about her problems.
We will have to wait for the toxicology report to be sure of the cause of the heiress' death. It is sad to see another young person like Casey losing their life, especially in the wake of the other celebrity deaths in the last year. We encourage you to watch the short video below:
