Grooveshark Co-Founder Dead At 28

By

Co-founder of Grooveshark Josh Greenberg was found dead on Sunday.

Greenberg, 28, was found by his girlfriend, Abby Mayer, in their bed, said Officer Ben Tobias, Gainesville Police Department spokesperson.

Investigators did not find any evidence of foul play or trauma, Tobias wrote in an email.

He said an autopsy was conducted today by the medical examiner’s office and they found no obvious cause of death. The toxicology results will take six-to-eight weeks to be completed.

Grooveshark was a successful web-based music streaming service founded by Greenberg and Sam Tarantino in 2006, both undergraduates at the University of Florida. In April 2015 the company announced it would shut down immediately as part of a settlement on copyright infringement lawsuits.

Friends of Greenberg are paying tribute by posting on social media, sharing memories about Greenberg and his significance to the Gainesville community.

This program focuses on a hormone called “leptin” that is more concentrated in women. I can’t stress enough that women should try this before wasting their money on things that don’t work. It changed my life..
