BREAKING: DJ AM Dead at 36

Breaking news: Celebrity DJ Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, was found dead today in his apartment in New York City. It's being reported that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene, and he had not been heard from for several days, according to his friends.

TMZ -- as ever, the leading source in these matters -- had this addition information:

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.

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.

Next month would have marked the one-year anniversary of Goldstein's miraculous escape from a plane crash in South Carolina.

    Sad Sad Sad -----
    Death & Dying is a "Requirement"
    Planning for a "Legitimate Eternity" is by "Choice"
    (2 Plus 2 equals 4) is "Fact" --- no matter WHAT your "Opinion" may be
    Freedom gives every person the "Right" to "Believe" what we will ---
    However - the consequences of our Belief is NOT determined by "Opinion" --- but by Real "FACTS"
    "Sincere Belief" that you can naturally breath under water is not only "Foolish" but the result of "Natural Stupidity" -- it produces ONE Result --- DEATH.
    Eternal DEATH is the result of the lack of "Humility" and Flagrant "Arrogance" in the face of an Eternal "Creator God" --- the only Truth
    Heaven is Populated by "BAD" People -- "Forgiven"
    Hell is populated by "BAD" People -----"Un-Forgiven"
    Michael Jackson and now DJAM had a lot of "TOYS" but left them all
    Foolish use of Drugs has never produced a solution to Despair and Temporary Pleasure
    I am convinced by the preponderance of the evidence that --- Tho so undeserving as I am --- I will spend Eternity in the Biblical Heaven --- certainly NOT by anything I was able to do to Gain it. I Humbly accepted the Free Gift of Salvation provided by the Sinless Son Of God who "Came into this world --- not to condemn the World but that the world through HIM might be saved". "Believe it or Not Mr Ripley"
    Make your own investigation -of the FACTS -not by "Opinion Consensus".

    Ok, who left the door open and let the crazy in?

  • Drum King says:

    This is sad to say the least, surviving a plan crash just to kill yourself with drugs (assuming of course). Such a waste of life and talent.

  • Bart Simpson says:

    Never heard of him 'til now.

  • WeaselSpleen says:

    The "fact" that someone has an "opinion" about what is "opinion" and what is "fact" doesn't make your "facts" better than my "facts."
    Anyone who claims to know for a fact what happens after you die is absolutely a liar, since it's a fact that nobody can come back from the dead and TELL us what really happens.

  • Deanna says:

    Amen Brother Bob! The Lord cuts you off when you served your purpose.

  • Alyssa says:

    Jesus came back and said what happens after we die. That's how we know.

    Oh my God, Sarah Palin, Learn! To! PUNCTUATE!!

  • Oh Please!! says:

    When are people going to stop being weak-putting all their faith into some unknown, unseen, unproven 'higher being' and start believing in themselves and their own 'higher power' to do things???? There is nobody 'up there' deciding our fates, or deciding ANYTHING that happens to us-there's just all of us, down here on this planet, causing all the good and bad things that happen. Good grief get a life and a backbone and stand up for your behavior and acts people!!!
    Too bad about DJ AM-much too young to be dead already-as far as drugs being involved-SCIENCE will tell what caused his death-and I'm sure the reason won't be that some 'god' from above decided it was his time to die!!
