caseynodrugs.jpg We already knew that Casey Johnson died of "natural causes," and now the Los Angeles County Coroner's office has released the full autopsy report, which confirms that the heiress didn't have any illegal drugs in her system.

However, the report does point out that Casey had a history of "possible excess use of Nyquil," and various medications were found at the scene of her death, including insulin, Motrin and clonazepam.

caseydeath10.jpg Interestingly enough, the Los Angeles County Coroner just announced that Casey Johnson's death was from diabetic ketoacidosis, a condition caused by low levels of insulin in the human body.

The Johnson & Johnson heiress' death was deemed natural, and like Brittany Murphy's autopsy results, officials say a second report with more details will be released in two weeks.

Courtenay Semel Talks About Plans To Release Casey Johnson Sex Tape

Jan 21, 2010 08:25 AM


So much for resting in peace!

Casey Johnson's ex-girlfriend (and mortal enemy of Tila Tequila) Courtenay Semel is speaking out to E! News about an explicit video that the two former lovers planned on releasing to earn a few extra bucks. Courtenay tells E!, "[Casey and I] had our own sex tape. It was either listen to our families and do what they say to get our lives back, or do it ourselves and sell this tape, work on our show. That was kind of our plan."

Courtenay says they devised the plan after Casey was cut off financially from her family, and she recalls telling the heiress, "We can get the money. We've already filmed it - why don't we just put it out there and we'll just take the money for it. We don't need our parents."

Courtenay also claims they were planning on releasing the raunchy flick as a teaser for their reality show, which was in development at the time. She added, "We laughed when we watched our sex tape because we were like, 'This is the most beautiful piece of art work we have ever seen in our lives.' It's beautiful ... When you find that person that's literally your other half. We don't care to show this. You could just tell how much, how in love, we were."

"Our show could've gone after that," she adds. "Casey and Courtenay were going to make Casey and Courtenay happen." The film was shot during a trip to Texas, but it seems pretty doubtful that it will ever see the light of day as Courtenay says it's currently in the Johnson family's possession.

Casey Johnson Laid To Rest This Morning

Jan 12, 2010 11:11 AM


Casey Johnson was laid to rest Tuesday morning at her family's plot in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The funeral was a small, private affair with a gathering of friends and family.

Not surprisingly, Casey's fiancee Tila Tequila did not attend. Yesterday we reported that the reality star so upset that she was on suicide watch. "I don't want to talk about the funeral," she said. "I wasn't allowed to go, and I am so upset. I can't sleep, and I am on suicide watch."

Casey Johnson was found dead in her home on January 4th. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

Casey Johnson's Landlord To 911 Operator: "She's Ice Cold And Her Hands Are Turning Blue"

Jan 8, 2010 03:30 PM

This is the 911 call made by Casey Johnson's landlord just minutes after she found the heiress' lifeless body, and she told the operator that she believed Casey had already passed away. She said, "She's ice cold and her hands are turning blue...I have two other people here with me and we all think she's dead."

When the 911 operator asks, "What makes you think that this was a suicide?" the landlord replies, "Oh I don't know if it's a suicide ... very often her medication gets all screwed up so [this is] probably because of that." The woman, who is the owner of Johnson's rented Orlando Avenue home must have been horrified to find her, but she doesn't sound all that surprised, which is even more tragic.

And this just in -- Nicky Hilton has tweeted that Casey's dogs are still alive, despite Tila's tweet earlier this morning that Nicky had "already killed [Casey's] dog." Maybe Casey's dogs won't be put to sleep after all?

Private Funeral Scheduled For Casey Johnson Later This Week

Jan 6, 2010 09:16 AM


Casey Johnson will be laid to rest later this week in a private funeral on the east coast.

"The family has arranged for Casey to be flown back east to her final resting place," says family spokesperson Jesse Derris. “The family asks for a measure of privacy over the next several days as they mourn their loss."

“The Johnson family wishes to thank everyone who has expressed condolences and support during this trying time," says Derris. "Your thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated."

Casey Johnson was found dead in her Los Angeles home (see the gallery below) on January 4th, but was believed to have passed away several days earlier.

Although the cause of death has yet to be determined, there was no evidence on the scene that illegal or prescription drugs played a part in her demise. Johnson had suffered from diabetes since a young age, and it's possible her death could be a result of not taking her medication.

Donations can be made in Johnson's name to the Casey Johnson Memorial at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

"Casey struggled throughout her life fighting this disease, and she would want to see all of us continue that fight on her behalf," Derris added.

A Look Back At Casey Johnson's Life

Jan 5, 2010 05:00 PM


Most of us knew Casey Johnson as the sweet socialite/party princess who hung out with the Hilton sisters and recently got engaged to Tila Tequila, but when the news broke that she was found dead at her Hollywood home, everyone wanted to know more about the troubled starlet.

The 30-year-old Johnson & Johnson heiress had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, and it's being reported that diabetes may have played a role in her untimely passing. Johnson was previously hospitalized twice for slipping into a diabetic coma, and several websites claim that insulin syringes were found in her home after her body was discovered. Sources say that Casey had been neglecting her treatment, and rather than focusing on her emotional and physical health, she would stay out and party all night.

A source tells Fox News, "Casey has been wild since her teenage years and never really slowed down. Her family often cut off her money and asked her to get help and get her life together." So how was she surviving? The source says Casey begged her friends for money, claiming that she needed it for her 3-year-old adopted daughter Ava.

The only problem? Casey's parents, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and socialite Sale Johnson removed the child from her custody in 2008 after finding her in less than suitable living conditions. "Casey would claim she needed the money for baby Ava, but all of her friends knew that her mother had taken Ava to live with her," the source added. "Her life was out of control, and she couldn't take care of [her child]."

Setting aside her family and money troubles, Casey had a rollercoaster of a love life, as evident from her drama with ex-girlfriends Jasmine Lennard and Courtenay Semel. Just a few months ago, Casey was arrested for allegedly stealing jewelry and other valuables from Jasmine, and it's been reported that Courtenay was the one who turned her in to the police. In January of 2009, Courtenay lit Casey's hair on fire after a squabble, so when the heiress announced her engagement to reality TV vixen Tila Tequila on December 9, 2009, it seemed like she had finally found true love.

Though some people speculated that the engagement was just a way for the ladies to get back at Courtenay (whom they had both dated and had major drama with over the past several years), the couple seemed pretty smitten to us when we chatted with them on December 10. Though Tila just confessed that the two had a minor quarrel on December 28, it didn't seem like anything that would have pushed Casey over the edge.

The Los Angeles County coroner has completed Casey's autopsy, and while results have been deferred, the coroner did release a statement saying there was "no evidence of trauma to the body," which seems to support LAPD's theory that Casey died of natural causes.

So what went wrong? The last time we saw her, she seemed so happy and in love...
