Sources claim the NYPD found him in his apartment today at 5:20p.m. He had not been seen or heard from in a few days, aside from a foreboding message on his Twitter account dated Aug. 25:

"New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems."

A source says that a friend went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door. TMZ reports that the friend called the police, who broke down the door and found his body.

DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina back in September 2008 that killed four companions. They were the only survivors.

Our condolences go out to Goldstein's family and friends.
