The death of superstar DJ Avicii sent shocks through the music industry over the weekend.
The 28-year-old Swede, whose real name is Tim Bergling, was found dead at a resort in Muscat, Oman, with officialsruling out any criminal suspicion.
Royal Oman Police confirmed two autopsies were conducted 48 hours after Avicii’s body was discovered dead. While no official cause of death has been issued, the artist did have a problem with alcoholism in the past, to the point of suffering pancreatitis.
In 2014, the condition led to Avicii having his gallbladder and appendix removed, and cancelling a series of concerts so as to recover.
In 2016, he quit touring but continued with his production work.
Members of Bergling’s family have arrived at the Arabian Peninsula to deal with the moving of the body back to Sweden. Meanwhile, fans in Stockholm have paid tribute to the DJ/producer, who has worked with iconic musicians such as Madonna and Coldplay and who enjoyed his own string of hits in the club and Top 40 charts.
