DJ AM’s Death Ruled Accidental

There was heavy speculation in the hours and days following DJ AM's untimely death that it may have been a suicide, but a ruling from New York City's medical examiner lists his cause of death as accidental. As expected, AM's death was the result of "acute intoxication" (i.e., overdose). He had the following drugs in his system when he died: cocaine, oxycodone, hydrocodone (Vicodin), Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl, and Levamisole (a drug used for cutting cocaine). There is still no official premiere date set for the launch of his MTV reality series, Gone Too Far. [TMZ]
