Johnson’s girlfriend, Megan Faulkner, went to Harlem late Tuesday to him, police said. Faulkner told police he was nowhere to be found and she tried unsuccessfully numerous times to contact.

Faulkner told police she returned to their apartment to find it ransacked. A large amount of jewelry and cash were missing.

The New York City Medical Examiner’s office was to determine the cause of Johnson’s death. The investigation continued late Thursday.
