dj-am-buried-in-dunksRIP to fellow sneaker head, international DJ and Producer DJ AM.  You def will be missed…

This is what TMZ Reports:

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 — but it was the fire department who finally entered 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.
