An heir to one of the biggest oil fortunes in US history has been found dead in his Hollywood Hills home of what was most likely natural causes or an accident.

Ann and Gordon Getty confirmed their 47-year-old son Andrew died on Tuesday. Gordon Getty is the San Francisco billionaire son of the late J Paul Getty, who died in 1976 at age 82, founder of the Getty Oil Co.

Andrew's body was found in the bathroom and his death had been initially called an accident because of medication found at the scene.

Toxicology tests could take up to 10 weeks to process.
