Last September, Goldstein and former Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker narrowly escaped death when a plane they were travelling on crashed in South Carolina.
Details are still unclear but according to Police sources its possible the disc jockey overdosed on drugs as drug paraphernalia was found near his body.
According to the TMZ report, a rep for DJ AM 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.
