DJ AM’s last hours revealed

The pieces are still being put together to identify the cause of Adam (DJ AM) Goldstein’s death

The pieces are still being put together to identify the cause of Adam (DJ AM) Goldstein’s death, but a police source tells People that on Friday, Aug. 28 — the day he was later discovered dead in his Manhattan apartment — the celebrity DJ had sent his last text message to two friends at 1 a.m.

People.com reports the subject of his message was his scheduled Las Vegas gig that very Friday night at the Rain Nightclub in the Palms Hotel — but he never made it.

Sixteen hours after Goldstein texted, a friend called 911 because Goldstein had failed to answer his cellphone and, when it was time for him to leave for his flight, his two travelling companions could not reach him.

After the NYPD broke down the door to his SoHo apartment, says a police source, they found the lifeless Goldstein in bed, wearing sweatpants, and a crack pipe nearby. They also discovered a half bag of crack cocaine and prescription drugs.

On Saturday, the New York City Medical Examiners office announced that after an initial autopsy proved “inconclusive,” more tests, including a toxicology report that might require weeks, would be performed.

Goldstein, who often talked about his past struggles with drug abuse, claimed he had been off drugs for 11 and a half years.
