RIP DJ AM
Cops tell us DJ AM — also known as Adam Goldstein — was found dead this afternoon in New York City.
Law enforcement sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We’re told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene. Sources tell TMZ prescription pill bottles were found by DJ AM’s body this afternoon.
We’re told DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days — one of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.
We’re told the friend called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM’s body.
Back in September of 2008, DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina. Four people died in the crash — which was caused when the airplane aborted takeoff and then ran off the runway. DJ AM and Barker were the only survivors."
DJ AM last tweet:
"New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems"
