Police Suspect Accidental Overdose in DJ AM's Death

TMZ is reporting that law enforcement sources directly connected with the death of DJ AM tell them that his death was the result of an accidental overdose and not a suicide.

Sources also told TMZ that DJ AM, a recovering addict, developed a dependency to Xanax and other benzodiazepinea a group of drugs used to treat anxiety) as a direct result of the plane crash a year ago. They're told AM (aka Adam Goldstein) developed a tremendous anxiety over flying -- something he had to do frequently for his job.

TMZ also repots that doctors began prescribing Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications to relieve his fear, but the benzos triggered a relapse into addiction. Sources say DJ AM's relapse was "recent" -- he was not abusing for a prolonged period of time before his death. According to TMZ's sources, evidence strongly indicates cause of death will be a combination of crack cocaine and benzos.


  1. RIP! This is so tragic....I hate to say it...but it's very Final Destination-like.
