Casey Johnson's body will be flown to the East Coast where the funeral will be held, a family spokesman said.
"The family has arranged for Casey to be flown back east to her final resting place. There will be a private funeral service later this week for the immediate family," said Jesse Derris, a spokesman for the Johnson family. "The family asks for a measure of privacy over the next several days as they mourn their loss."

The Johnson & Johnson heiress, 30, was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Monday. An autopsy was scheduled to take place Tuesday or Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, and her cause of death has yet to be determined. A cause of death is currently undetermined — pending a toxicology report — but authorities said the cause of death appeared to be natural.
