Casey Johnson (heir to Johnson & Johnson) passes away at 30

Published: January 05, 2021

Just a few weeks after the tragic death of Brittany Murphy, reports are rife of another celebrity death: Casey Johnson was found dead in a house in Los Angeles on the morning of January 4th, 2010.

She was just 30 years old.

While the cause of death is yet to be announced - LAPD rule out foul play - questions are being asked about why yet another young, prominent woman has met her end so early on.

Ms Johnson leaves behind her daughter Ava, now three, which she adopted from Kazakhstan in 2007.

Both the Guardian and TMZ speculate about the use of illegal substances and prescription drugs, but the results of toxicology tests will not be known for several weeks yet.

Casey Johnson is heiress to the business empire “Johnson & Johnson”, which is best known for their baby care products (like Johnson’s Baby Oil), oral hygiene brand “Listerine”, women’s care products such as “Carefree”, and everyday essentials “Band-Aid”, “Tylenol”, “Imodium”, “Nicorette” and “Rolaids”.

She is also the daughter of Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets American football team.

Recently, Johnson, who declared herself to be a lesbian, was said to be in a romantic engagement with “Tila Tequila”, a bisexual reality TV star, best known for her show “A Shot at Love with Tila”. Reports even claimed the couple had got engaged.

While on Tila Tequila’s Website there is no mention of the death of her partner, there are several tweets on her twitter page, which seem to suggest that in the early hours of Tuesday, January 5th (around 4 a.m.), Tila was still hoping that Johson had not yet passed away but was in a coma.

“I just got news that my fiance is not dead but currently in a coma!!! Omg please pray that she will make it! Hang in there my love please!!!”

At around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 5th 2010, more information appeared:

“I can’t stop these haunting visions of her and I. We made such a lovely couple, only beginning to spend the rest of our lives together…”
