DJ AM Autopsy Inconclusive, Dr Drew Suspects Pain Meds

(antiMusic) Drugs are expected to be the cause of death for DJ AM, however an autopsy Saturday of the 36-year-old was inconclusive and results from toxicology tests will be needed to confirm if drugs did play a part in his untimely death.

According to the Associated Press, Vh1's Celebrity Rehab doctor and addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky suspects that pain medications were the cause. "It very slowly and subtly reawakens addiction," Pinsky said of pain medication in an interview Saturday. "I'm not saying it was inappropriately prescribed, I'm saying he didn't know the risks." more

DJ AM is well known in DJ circles but he became better known to rock fans due to the fatal airplane crash in South Carolina where he was injured along with his fellow passenger Blink-182's Travis Barker. Following news of AM's death on Saturday, Barker wrote on his twitter page "Don't know how i am gonna play 2night but i am for AM. My brother is gone. i love u and miss u, i'll never forget all the good times we had."

That night Barker also paid tribute to DJ AM from the stage during a Blink-182 concert with a moment of silence, you can read about that tribute at - MTV
