Death of DJ AM
DJ AM was found dead at his New York City apartment at around 5:20 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2009. He was 36 years old.
TMZ reported that friends called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM's body. Sources say this may have been caused by the drug use. Statements by a New York law enforcement official to the Associated Press indicate that drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment, but no signs of foul play
On September 19, 2008, after having performed at a college event with frequent collaborator Travis Barker, Goldstein was seriously injured when a Learjet he was traveling in crashed on takeoff in Columbia, South Carolina. The crash killed both crew members and two other passengers, and critically injured Goldstein and Barker
