Andrew Getty (1967–2015)

Andrew Getty, forty-seven, grandson of oil baron J. Paul Getty and an heir to the family’s fortune, was found dead in his home, report the Los Angeles Times’ Matt Hamilton, Kate Mather, Javier Panzar, and Richard Winton.

Getty’s father manages the family’s philanthropic activities, while the Getty Center in Los Angeles—which was constructed for $1.3 billion—is supported by the J. Paul Getty Trust.

Apparently, Andrew Getty had sought a restraining order against a woman just weeks ago, but foul play was not involved in his death, according to a preliminary investigation.
