After conducting an autopsy on the body of Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson, who was found dead yesterday in her Los Angeles home, the L.A. County Coroner has deferred the cause of death, pending the receipt of toxicological tests and microscopic studies. No ruling will be made until results are back, which could take 6 to 8 weeks, but the coroner did say that the "anatomical findings show no evidence of trauma to the body."
