Details on DJ AM's last day alive emerged Monday.

Chilling details have emerged from the scene of DJ AM's death.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, sent his final text message to two friends at 1 AM on Friday. His planned DJ gig later that evening at Rain nightclub inside the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas never happened.

Sixteen hours after Goldstein's last text, a friend called 911 because he could not be reached when he was supposed to be boarding a plane to Vegas.

A New York Police Department source told Access Hollywood that authorities broke down his door and found him on his bed in sweatpants, with a crack pipe nearby. They also discovered crack cocaine, and prescription drugs in his apartment.

The source also said there was "no suicide note found."

Results from an autopsy conducted on Saturday are due in several weeks pending further tests, including toxicology.
