LOS ANGELES - Socialite Casey Johnson was already dead when an ambulance was called to her Los Angeles home, according to the woman who made the 911 call.

A recording of the call was posted on TMZ.com on Saturday.

The woman, who was not identified, described the Johnson & Johnson heiress as “ice cold” and says Johnson’s hands were turning blue. The woman also said there are two other people at the home, and they all believed that Johnson was dead.

Johnson, 30, whose father is New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” Johnson, was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Monday.

A dispatcher asked the woman if she thought the death was a suicide.

“I don’t know if it’s a suicide,” the caller said. “Very often, her medication gets all screwed up. It’s probably because of that.” Johnson had been an insulin-dependent diabetic since childhood but it was not immediately clear whether that contributed to her death. An autopsy Tuesday was inconclusive and the results of toxicology tests weren’t expected for weeks.

A memorial fund in Johnson’s name was set up with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Johnson, dubbed the “baby-oil heiress” by the New York Post, lived her life on the tabloid pages.

She partied with high school friend and fellow heiress Paris Hilton and announced last month that she was “engaged” to bisexual reality TV star Tila Tequila.

Johnson was charged last month with burglary and receiving stolen property for allegedly taking $22,000 in clothing, jewelry and other items from a friend’s home. She pleaded not guilty and faced a February hearing.

Johnson’s body was flown east for a private funeral.
