For the second time in less than six months, one of Nicole Richie's friends has died of a drug overdose.
Casey Johnson, heiress to the Johnson & Johnson family fortune and a regular fixture on the New York and Los Angeles social scenes, was confirmed dead on Jan 4, days after dying alone in her home. The troubled young mother sent her last Twitter message at 1:12 a.m. on Dec. 29, saying, "Sweet dreams. I'm getting a new car."Seven days later, a maid arrived to find Casey's body. Johnson was 30-years-old.
