LOS ANGELES (AP) – A court filing by Andrew Getty, the oil heir found dead in Los Angeles, says he had a serious health problem.
The 47-year-old G etty, whose grandfather J. Paul Getty’s fortune made his famil! y among the richest in U.S. history, wrote in a March 16 filing for a restraining order against his girlfriend that a rise in his blood pressure would place him at risk of injury or death. He didn’t specify the condition.
Getty was found dead at his home Tuesday. A coroner’s investigator says it was likely due to natural causes or an accident because medication was found.
An official with knowledge of the investigation says the girlfriend, Lanessa DeJonge, who had a room at Getty’s house, called authorities to the home.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing Wednesday.
