per superficial:


Less than a year after narrowly surviving a fiery plane crash, DJ AM was found dead this afternoon in his New York apartment. A drug overdose is believed to be the cause. TMZ reports:

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.

Way to make the most of a second chance at life. Well played.

If a drug overdose is indeed the cause of death, I couldn't agree more with the final sentence.

sounds like he's been through things and died early but how was he famous?

More popular and known about on the west coast.

Basically DJ'd at every club in the Hollywood area. Basically, became a "celeb" because of this.

Also, dating Richie, and Mandy Moore didn't hurt

It's hard for me to feel sorry for anybody these days who die using drugs. There have been thousands and thousands of drug overdoses and for someone to not think it's going to eventually happen to them is just ignorant.

Given your name, I found this interesting. It's a shame, but I tend to agree.
