American club disk jockey Adam Goldstein, best known as DJ AM, was found dead in his New York City apartment Friday evening (Aug 28), reports TMZ.
Sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We’re told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.
Our sources say 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 cops — but it was the fire department who finally entered his apartment and found the 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.
We offer our sincerest condolences to his friends and family at this difficult time.
