Playboy Playmate Cassandra Lynn Hensley was found dead this week. She was 34 years old.

Hensley was discovered floating in the bathtub at her friend's Los Angeles home Wednesday (Jan. 15), TMZ reported. Paramedics could not revive her at the scene.

While foul play is not suspected, police are allegedly investigated the death as a possible overdose, according to TMZ.

An autopsy was completed Thursday, but the results are unavailable pending a toxicology report, Los Angeles County coroner's Lt. Joe Bale told CNN. Such reports typically take several weeks to process.

The model from Utah was Playboy's Miss February 2006. Hensley tried out for a spot in the men's magazine after placing in the top 20 at a Hawaiian Tropic contest, according to Us Weekly.

In December, Hensley opened up about life after Playboy fame during an interview with Metropolis Nights magazine.

"Yes, there is 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 said.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, law enforcement sources have found that "Cassandra Lynn had indulged in large amounts of cocaine and booze" before she died.
