Avicii’s family arrives in Oman as new details about his death emerge

Authorities are ruling out "criminal suspicion" over the death of superstar DJ Avicii, who died last week while on vacation in Oman.

Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead on Friday in Muscat, the capital of Oman. The cause of death has not been disclosed.

"Two autopsies were carried out … and we can confirm that there is no criminal suspicion for the death," Royal Oman police told CNN.

Avicii's parents, two sisters and one brothers are in the nation to repatriate their bodies this week, according to police in Oman, a popular holiday destination in the Arabian Peninsula.

His family is "completely devastated," police said.

Fans meet in Stockholm [19659007] Fans gathered in Stockholm on Saturday to pay homage to the 28-year-old Swedish superstar.

Avicii thrilled club goers with their catchy hits, twinkling lights and touching collaborations. He was one of the most successful DJs in the world and a big name in the electronic dance music genre known as EDM.

He worked with artists such as Madonna and Chris Martin, and had a pop crossover success in 2013 with "Wake Me Up."

But despite a life full of clogging and screaming fans, he constantly had problems with fame and health. He retired from acting two years ago to take a break from the tours and the exhausting lifestyle that entails.

In messages posted on social networks, he said stress, anxiety and illness were factors in his decision. Getting away was difficult, he said, but he also had to pursue other interests.

"Creating music is what makes me happy and I have met so many wonderful people in my touring days, seen so many incredible places and created endless good memories," he posted on social media at that time.

"The decision I made might seem strange to some, but they are all different and for me it was the right one."

Feast and anxiety [19659007] Avicii said his more than 800 shows had taken its toll, added to his anxiety and led him to a party life. He also had several health scares, including acute pancreatitis, which he blamed for drinking excessively.

"Yes, I was drinking too much, generally celebrating too much," he said. "Then I had a pancreatitis attack [at 21] which is very rare, so that forced me to do a 180 and stop drinking."

He assured the fans that he will continue making music in the studio. In August of 2017, a year after his last tour, he announced that he would release a new album.

Fervent tributes have been received from his fellow musicians and admirers. Superstar DJ Calvin Harris described him as a "beautiful, passionate and extremely talented soul".

Singer Wyclef Jean said he was like his "little brother" and will be missed.

"In my darkest hour, I went to Sweden and he was there for me and we found light in a great conversation and in music," Jean tweeted. "… This pain that I can not describe"
