8/28/2009 8:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell us DJ AM -- also known as Adam Goldstein -- was found dead this afternoon 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, who gained entrance to 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.

UPDATE: A rep for DJ AM just issued the following statement: "Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein was found deceased this afternoon in his New York City apartment. The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Out of respect for his family and loved ones, please respect their privacy at this time."

"Wow really he is dead its almost like it has been a curse this year of people just dying. What is going on with everyone. Be ready everyone GOD IS COMING SOON!"
------------------------


no its not a curse, its called doing drugs. When you do hard drugs like that you're risking the chance of dying. Stick with weed, it cant kill you.

Some people just throw their lives away, while others desperately want to live and can't.

I remember the plane crash but other than that the guy is a total blank to me. What did he achieve in life, if anything?

Let's hope these religious idiots who think it's a judgment, and the moron's who think it's like a frickin' movie are next on the death list. Seriously, you people are poisoning the gene pool with your ignorance and stupidity.

never heard him DJ. i do know Blink 182 has zero good songs. and he did screw Nicole Richie. So he couldn't get any lower in life. Well Lindsay Lohan would be a lower skank but Nicole is pretty much rock bottom.

It's good to see comments from actual hearts amongst the disgutsting, heartless freaks, who have the audacity to not only judge this man; but to even put a value on his life. This man was clearly loved by family & friends. How dare you judge or compare his worth? My heart goes out to his loved ones- Peace...
