RIP DJ AM- (March 30, 1973 - August 28, 2009)

Cops tell us DJ AM -- also known as Adam Goldstein -- was found dead this morning in New York City.

Sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We're told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.

Our sources say 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 cops -- but it was the fire department who finally entered his apartment and found the body.

Back in September of 2008, DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina. Four people died in the crash -- which was caused when the airplane aborted takeoff and then ran off the runway. DJ AM and Barker were the only survivors.

Sources tell TMZ prescription pill bottles were found near DJ AM's body this afternoon.

We're told his body was found at around 5 PM at his apartment in New York City -- he was shirtless and wearing sweatpants.

UPDATE 8:10 PM ET: Sources say a pipe commonly used to smoke drugs was also found inside the bedroom.

UPDATE 7:51 PM ET: We're told his body has not been removed from the apartment.

He was just seen Sunday throwing out the last pitch at Citi Field

For real though this guy must have had death on his shoulder. It is sad to say that but with all of the things he went through surviving that plane crash... He must have been real messed up and started doing drugs, I know if I was in plane crash and survived I would probably be smokin alot of weed. Please everyone respect this man do not make fun of him because of the way he died.

The reason Trav and AM survived the crash is not only because one GOD was on there side but because two, in situations like that, rescue always knows to go for the stars first... But this is so very sad.. I see alot of people posting negative stuff on so many blog sites about him and his death, let Adam rest in piece, great DJ one of the best.. Him and Ztrip invented the style of Djing which we call "MASHUPS".. Please stop with the all the bad comments and just wish his family is Soul Well!

Let me make a professional comment....R.I.P. But lets not speculate yet,we don't know what caused his death ...Of course the use of drugs is a known factor for cats checkin out early,so all you youngin take notes ....Leave them drugs alone,Get on a natural high...Substitute somethin positive for that negative, Like makin money,legally!!! Doin somethin for your health ,like workin out...Try a sport or hobby anything but takin that risk for pleasure...But all in all you gonna do you how ever you feel.....What ever you do be safe!!!! You don't wanna disappoint your family by hearin some crazy s*** like that!!!.... You wanta hear some good music check me out'm not a hater ,I'm a participator...Peace
