An official cause of death for 36 year-old Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, has yet to be determined. Autopsy results from the New York City Medical Examiner’s office did not yield enough information to determine how the popular DJ died.
New York City Medical Examiner spokesperson Ellen Borakove said in a press statement that additional toxicology and tissue testing would be needed to uncover the cause of Goldstein’s death, according to People.
Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein was found dead in his New York apartment on Friday afternoon after a 911 call indicated he had not been seen in several days. Unconfirmed reports allege both prescription and illegal drugs may have been found in the apartment.
DJ AM, who survived a tragic plane accident last September that killed four people, previously battled drug abuse in his twenties. However, he recently stated he had been clean and sober for nearly a dozen years. Goldstein and Travis Barker of Blink-182 both suffered severe injuries in the plane crash and some theorize DJ AM may have fallen off the wagon after becoming addicted to pain medication.
Goldstein was also reportedly distraught over a recent breakup with model girlfriend Hayley Wood.
