A member of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has confirmed Casey Johnson failed to take her diabetes medication in the lead up to her tragic death.
The socialite, heir to the Johnson & Johnson company, was found dead at her Los Angeles home on 4 January (10).
A coroner's report determined the 30 year old, who suffered from diabetes, passed away due to diabetic ketoacidosis, caused by a lack of insulin.
And Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter tells GossipCop.com Johnson's death could have been prevented if she had followed her medical regimen properly.
He tells GossipCop.com, "(Johnson) wasn't taking any of her (diabetes) meds. If you're not taking any of (the medications), this is what the result is."
