Goldstein’s friends notified the autorities after not hearing from his for several days. The police found his body after breaking down his apartment door.

Goldstein and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker were the only two survivors of a private jet crash last September. At the time, Goldstein and Barker sustained severe burns.
