Cassandra Lynn Hensley was found dead at 34 Wednesday of a suspected drug overdose, according to reports. The young former Playboy Playmate was found floating in her friend's bathtub in Los Angeles.
Cassandra Lynn Hensley left her home in Fairfax, Va. to visit her friend in LA when the suspected overdose occurred. After Hensley was found, her friend called police and reported a possible overdose. Unfortunately, paramedics were unable to revive her, according to TMZ.
The former Playboy model was Miss February in 2006, and at the time even lived in the Playboy mansion alongside Hugh Hefner and various other Playboy bunnies. After leaving Playboy she was still an active model, communicating to her fans via her website, Twitter feeds and appearing in magazines.
"Yes, there is life after Playboy," she told Metropolis Nights in December as their "Angel of the Month." "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)."
Hensley was originally from Ferron, Utah and moved to California at 18 to model while becoming an aesthetician, according to her biography on the Playboy website. She didn't get the opportunity to become a Playboy model until placing in the Top 20 in a Hawaiian Tropic contest.
"I'm happy to be a playmate," she said at the time. "It's a dream come true."
Foul play is not suspected in Hensley's death.
