(Newser) – Details of DJ AM’s final hours are beginning to come together, and police sources tell People he sent out his last text message at 1am the day he died. Two friends received the message, about his gig in Las Vegas that night—and 16 hours later, a friend called 911 after Goldstein failed to answer his phone or leave for his scheduled flight.

Meanwhile, celebrity remembrances continue to pour in, including one from ex-girlfriend Mandy Moore. “I am absolutely heartbroken,” she tells Us in a statement. “For those of us lucky enough to have known him, Adam radiated a contagious exuberance for life and also personified the very definition of a true friend. To say that he will be missed beyond words is an understatement. My heart goes out to his loved ones.” (Read more DJ AM stories.)
