After Life

DJ's Death Ruled Accidental

The death of DJ AM, the famed Hollywood turn-tablist, last month has been ruled "accidental," according to the New York City medical examiner's office. The medical examiner attributes AM's (whose real name is Adam Goldstein) death to a lethal combination of cocaine and prescription drugs, including oxycodone, hydrocodone, Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl, and Levamisole. Though the 36-year-old DJ had been sober for over a decade, Tuesday's toxicology report deems the cause of death acute intoxication. One month after paramedics found Goldstein in his SoHo apartment, strewn with a crack pipe and prescription pill bottles, what was once speculated suicide is now laid to rest as a tragic mistake.
