Even though his autopsy was completed on Saturday, August 30th, Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein'scause of death is still unknown.The New York City Medical Examiner stated, "The cause of death was inconclusive because we need to do additional testing. The testing would include toxicology and tissue testing. We don't expect any results for several weeks."Goldstein, did have a history of drug abuse, but he recently stated that he had been sober for 11 1/2 years and worked with other addicts. However, some believe that the stress from his near fatal plane crash and his girlfriend leaving him may have been to much for him to handle causing him to use again.Travis Barker, Adam's friend and fellow crash survivor, tweeted,
