    CA - J. Paul Getty's grandson found dead; had just sought restraining order

    LA Times:

    Andrew Getty, an heir to the Getty oil fortune, was found dead at his Hollywood Hills home Tuesday. Los Angeles police are investigating.

    The cause of death was undetermined at this time, LAPD Sgt. Kyle Kirkman said.

    Police were called to the home, located at the end of a narrow, leafy street, at 2:18 p.m., said Cmdr. Andrew Smith.

    A woman who was present at the time of the death was escorted from the residence by police for questioning, Smith said. She is cooperating with investigators, Smith said.

    From your link:

    (snip)
    Andrew Getty, 47, was the grandson of oil baron J. Paul Getty and part of the Getty trust. He is one of four sons of Gordon P. Getty, one of J. Paul Getty's three sons.

    Gordon Getty has a net worth of $2.1 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

    So sad to lose your life so young (he was only a few years older than me). I hope LE is able to solve this crime. Scary....

    Sadly, happens both in high income and low income neighborhoods and in between too.

    LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith, a department spokesman, cautioned it was still “very, very early in the investigation” but said that based on initial observations, “this does not appear immediately to be a criminal act.”

    Coroner’s and investigators remained on scene late Tuesday, waiting for a search warrant that would allow detectives to enter the home and look for any evidence.

    Our sources say Andrew and his ex-girlfriend have a storied history with the LAPD. Cops have been to his residence 31 times, mostly for domestic disturbances. Our sources say they have both frequently been under the influence of drugs during the police visits.

    We're told the drugs cops found in the past were prescriptions.

    Getty had a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend and the unidentified woman had been placed under psychiatric care in the past after injuring cops when they responded to the house.

    The death of a 47-year-old grandson of the late oil billionaire J. Paul Getty Tuesday appeared to be from natural causes or an accident, Ed Winter of the coroner’s office said.

    From the description of the injuries it sounds like the death could be the result of a sexual misadventure (without getting too graphic).

    “The tentative information that we have is that he was not feeling good for the last couple months and he supposedly had an appointment scheduled for tomorrow with a personal physician,” Ed Winter, the Los Angeles County chief assistant coroner, said. “We did collect some prescription bottles.”

    Winter said Getty's body was found lying on his side between a hallway and a bathroom.
