Police Find No ‘Criminal Suspicion’ In Avicii’s Death
Fans have spent the weekend mourning and publicly celebrating DJ Avicii across the globe after he was reported dead at the age of 28.
The Swedish EDM artist, whose real name was Tim Burgling, was found dead while on holidays in Muscat, Oman on Friday.
No cause of death was reported, however, police have since reported that there is no evidence of “criminal suspicion” in regards to his death.
Sky News in the U.K have published a quote from Oman’s police force who said that after two post-mortem examinations, they were certain that “there is no criminal suspicion of death”.
Mr Burgling’s parents and brother have now arrived in Oman and they will bring his body back to Sweden this week.
People around the world, especially in his hometown of Sweden, were devastated by the DJ’s untimely death. Thousands of fans gathered in Sergels Torg in Stockholm to hold a minutes silence and listen to his greatest hits.
At the Coachella festival in California, Norwegian DJ Kygo played a tribute to Avicii by playing his favourite track, ‘Without You’, as the last song in his set. Kygo told the crowd, “Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration, and he was the reason I started making electronic music.”
“I want to end my set tonight with my favourite Avicii song, in honour of Avicii, I want you guys to dance and sing along and let’s celebrate the life of a true musical genius,” he continued.
DJ Avicii became well known in the music industry with hits like ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey Brother’. He quit touring in 2016 after he suffered numerous health problems that led to the removal of his appendix and gallbladder.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this time.
