Playboy centerfold model and popular Playmate Cassandra Lynn Hensley was found dead and floating in a bathtub at a friend’s Marina Del Rey area home on Wednesday, according to a Jan. 17 announcement from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
TMZ reported that police are investigating the model’s death as a possible drug overdose.
We're told Lynn's friend found her floating in a bath tub. The friend then called police, reporting a possible OD. When paramedics arrived they could not revive her.
Foul play is not suspected.
Cassandra was Playboy’s Miss February 2006. She was only 34-years-old at the time of her death.
She was active on social media, with her last tweet and Facebook status update posted only several days ago.
Her final Facebook update on Jan. 13 stated simply, “I can finally post ..”
Cassandra Lynn’s autopsy was performed in Los Angeles on Jan. 16, according to CNN.
Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County coroner's office announced that a final determination on Cassandra’s cause of death won’t be released until toxicology tests have been completed, which could take several weeks.
Cassandra Lynn was born Aug. 15, 1979 in Price, Utah. Her twitter feed is still posting automatic horoscopes for her astrological sign, Leo. She listed two Utah high schools on her Facebook page, West Jordan High School and Carbon High School.
Playboy's Miss February 2006 was a resident of Fairfax, Va. at the time of her death.
In a recent interview with Philadelphia's “Metropolis Nights” magazine, Cassandra said that there was "life after Playboy."
"I have been a part of many great experiences: travel shows, magazine covers, and of course giving advice to young impressionable girls who think they need to act a certain way for a chance to be a model -- classy not slutty," she told the magazine.
Rest in peace Cassandra Lynn Hensley.
