    Josh Greenberg, co-founder of Grooveshark, was found dead in his Gainesville, Florida home on Sunday. He was 28. Police say no foul play, injuries or drugs are suspected.

    Grooveshark recently shut down as music labels sued the company for copyright infringement. According to Greenberg’s mother Lori, Josh was excited to start new projects and not at all depressed or otherwise distraught about Grooveshark shutting down.

    Greenberg was found by his girlfriend, Abby, who found him lying in bed after returning from a weekend trip. “It looked like he was sleeping,” she said.

    An autopsy is being performed today to determine the cause of death.
