- Associated Press - Friday, April 13, 2012

MALIBU, CALIF. (AP) - The girlfriend of Clark Gable's only son has died in the couple's Malibu home.

The body of 41-year-old Christiane Candice Lange was found by John Clark Gable at 9:40 a.m. Wednesday.

Los Angeles County coroner's office spokesman Ed Winter said Friday that it appears to be a possible natural death and foul play isn't suspected. There is a security hold on the case and Winter says he cannot release any other information.

Sheriff's Deputy Guillermina Saldana says homicide detectives were called to the home after the body was discovered. Saldana says the investigation is continuing.

John Clark Gable is the only son of late "Gone With the Wind" star Clark Gable. He was born shortly after his father died of a heart attack at age 59 in 1960.
