Casey leaves behind reported fiancée Tila Tequila and a young daughter.

Casey Johnson, the great-great-granddaughter of Johnson & Johnson co-founder Robert Wood Johnson, has died at the age of 30, TMZ reports.

The heiress’ body was discovered on the morning of Jan. 4 in L.A., but the cause of death is still undetermined.

Casey experienced some highs and lows over the past few years. In 2007 she adopted a daughter, Ava, from Kazakhstan and announced Dec. 9 that she was engaged to reality star Tila Tequila, 28. Tila told TMZ they were fighting during the week of New Years and that she unsuccessfully tried contacting Casey on Dec. 29 after she left her dogs at Tila’s place.

In the weeks leading up to her death, the J&J heiress also ran into some personal and legal trouble. In January 2009, her ex-girlfriend Courtenay Semel (who previous dated Lindsay Lohan in late 2007) reportedly set her hair on fire after an argument. A few months later in November, Casey was arrested for allegedly stealing jewelry and other items from another ex, Jasmine Lennard.
