(Newser) – DJ AM lit up a crack pipe in front of his recovery sponsor the day before his death, the New York Post reports in an ongoing effort to piece together his final moments. Friends told investigators Adam Goldstein’s manager and sponsor flew from the West Coast to NYC Thursday after weeks of worry over his erratic behavior and missed appointments, but an agitated Goldstein would only see his sponsor.

After also popping pills in front of his sponsor, Goldstein promised to check himself into rehab after his Las Vegas gig Friday night—but he never made it to that performance. The police who found Goldstein’s body also found his apartment littered with multiple varieties of painkillers and anti-anxiety medications. Friends say Goldstein constantly begged for anti-anxiety pills following last year’s plane crash.
