New York Post: DJ AM was found dead this morning in an apartment on Lafayette Street in Manhattan.

Sources said drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment.

Nearly a year ago, DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, escaped a plane crash in South Carolina.

The Learjet he and Travis Barker were on overshot the runway and burst into flames. He suffered severe burns in the crash.

Barker's ex-wife, Playmate Shanna Moakler, responded to news of DJ AM's death on Twitter, writing, "My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends."

DJ AM's last post on Twitter, dated Tuesday, was a line from a Grandmaster Flash song: "New york, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems."

Among others, DJ AM dated Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore.

I feel very sorry for the family and friends of Adam but holy sh*t..when will people learn?! These freaking celebs think they are invinsible. Every other day I hear of another one that dies from an overdose. WAKE UP or sooner or later your shooting up, snorting, smoking, pill popping butts will be 6 feet under

Im so sorry for the loss of DJ AM. I feel for the family and friends. And I hope they find strength to move past this. Its so sad. And even more sad that yet another person is lost to drugs. What a shame. I wish the world would wake up. And see what it dose not just to the Users but to the people who love the drug user.
Rest in peace DJ AM.
