Socialite Daughter of Jets Owner Dies


Casey Johnson, the socialite daughter of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has died, a spokesman for the family and police said Monday. She was 30.

TMZ.com reported that Johnson was found dead Monday. Police officers responded to her Los Angeles home around 11:51 a.m. where paramedics had already pronounced Johnson dead, officer Sara Faden said.

Faden said she did not know how long Johnson may have been dead by the time authorities arrived.

She said Johnson’s death may have been from natural causes since a preliminary death investigation didn’t turn up any signs of foul play. But Faden added that a final cause of death will be determined by coroner’s officials, who will seek toxicology tests. Results of those tests could take six weeks to obtain.

In a statement released through publicist Jesse Derris, the Johnson family says it “is mourning its tragic loss, and asks for privacy during this very difficult time.”

Casey Johnson gained celebrity as the girlfriend of Tila Tequila, a reality TV star best known for “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila,” which ran for two seasons on MTV.

Tequila’s publicist says the two were engaged.
