Taken from AllHipHop:
DJ AM, real name Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his New York City apartment today (August 28). The popular disc jockey was discovered about 5:20 PM. Goldstein's friends reportedly became concerned when none of them had heard from him in several days. One went to check on him, but didn't get him after going straight to the apartment room. The police broke into the apartment after the unnamed friend called them. They found him unresponsive and determined that he was dead. The last thing he said via his Twitter account was, "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems." Almost a year ago in September 2008, DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina. Both men were badly burned and were the only ones that made it out alive. Reports say that there were drug materials in the home and that it may have played a factor in his death. He was 36 years old.
