Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson had a history of diabetes that could have contributed to her sudden death this week. The body of the 30-year-old socialite was discovered in her Los Angeles Monday morning. She had been dead for several days. The empressor to the pharmaceutical fortune had to be hospitalized as recently as last year after slipping into a diabetic coma, law enforcement officials tell TMZ.com.
FOX News cites sources who say Casey was routinely neglected her health and did not monitor the dangerous condition.
“Casey had very severe diabetes and was not taking care of herself properly,” the source said. “With her condition she should have been closely monitoring her health, taking insulin, monitoring blood sugar levels, and she wasn’t.”
