Avicii Cause Of Death: Autopsies Show No Signs Of Foul Play Or Drugs
Autopsies of Tim Bergling, more commonly known as the DJ Avicii, have been completed following his death in Oman.
Two autopsy reports have revealed nothing suspicious and ruled out foul play in the death of Avicii. “Two autopsies were carried out, one yesterday and one today and we absolutely confirmed that there is no criminal suspicion in the death,” said a police source to AFP.
The Swedish born DJ died on April 20, Avicii’s publicist released a statement announcing his sudden death. “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. He was found dead in Muscat, Oman on Friday afternoon local time, April 20,” the statement read. “The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.” He was 28.
Sweden’s public broadcaster said the body has been cleared to be taken back to Sweden.
In 2016, Avicii announced his retirement from performing live. He told the Hollywood Reporter that it was too difficult for him. “It was always very hard for me,” he said. “I took on board too much negative energy, I think. I just feel happy I feel free at this point. Like I have my private life back and focusing on myself for the first time in a long time.”
