DJ AM Had Nine OxyContin Pills in Him, May Have Committed Suicide

Investigators looking into the death of DJ AM have revealed new details to People magazine, indicating that the deejay—born Adam Goldstein—may have intentionally overdosed last week.

A source tells the magazine that Goldstein had eight undigested OxyContin pills in his stomach and a ninth in his mouth when he was found, suggesting that he binged on the powerful painkillers in an effort to kill himself.

“He wanted to die,” says the source. “He was going unconscious when he took the last one. He didn’t even swallow it.”

When police entered Goldstein’s New York apartment, the source adds, their progress was impeded by a mirror propped against the inside of the front door. Once they pushed that mirror aside and gained entry, they discovered that a second mirror had been propped up against the door of the bedroom, where they eventually found Goldstein’s body.

The source notes that a crack pipe was lying next to Goldstein’s body and, when they moved the body, they discovered crack underneath it. The source theorizes that Goldstein “smoked a lot of crack, barricaded the doors and killed himself.”

Police also found a Valentine’s Day card from Goldstein’s last girlfriend Hayley Wood on the living-room coffee table, along with a handful of photos of the two. It’s been reported that Goldstein had been depressed because the two had broken up recently, though Wood denies that they had split.
