NEW YORK (WPIX) – Celebrity disc jockey DJ AM – also known as Adam Goldstein – was found dead in SoHo Friday.
According to authorities, his body was found in his seventh floor apartment around 5:20 p.m. and was surrounded by prescription drugs. One of his friends – who had reportedly not heard from him in a few days – phoned authorities when he went to check on him and did not get a response.
New York City police then broke down the door and found DJ AM dead.
Goldstein, along with drummer Travis Barker, survived a small plane crash in South Carolina back in September. Four people died in that incident.
DJ AM and Barker are the only ones who survived the crash.
The details surrounding the death of DJ AM are still unclear, but sources say investigators are looking into the possibility of a drug overdose. He was 36-years-old.
Goldstein was best known for performing at some of Hollywood’s most exclusive parties. He was also known for relationships with Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore.
