Getty oil founder’s grandson Andrew Getty was found dead at his home in Los Angeles. J Paul Getty was 47.
The death appeared to be natural or an accident, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
“At first glance, it does not appear to be a criminal type of act. But that could change,” Los Angeles police department spokesman Commander Andrew Smith said on Tuesday night.
J. Paul Getty was an enthusiastic collector of art and antiquities, and the Getty name is best known in the Los Angeles area for the museum that houses much of it, along with many other high-priced artworks bought since his death.
