Casey Johnson, longtime friend of Paris Hilton, passes away

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton’s childhood friend, Casey Johnson, heiress of the Johnson & Johnson empire, passed away. Casey was supposed to play the role of Nicole Richie in the Simple Life, but she turned down Paris Hilton’s invitation and then said that it was “the stupidest mistake of [her] life” to have rejected it.

Paris Hilton told Life & Style magazine: “I am devastated to hear this news. I’ve known Casey since I was a baby. She had a big heart and she was a good friend. I feel so sad, I don’t want to believe it. My condolences go out to her family and loved ones.”

Thanks to Benji.

she was found dead in her home. autopsy results are un remarkable and final cause of death determinatrion is waiting for the toxicology reports to come back. she was diabetic enoough to require insulin shots, so there is speculation that played arole in her death. apparently she was dead at least 3 days before being discovered.
