A local policeman from Oman reveals that there was no foul play involved in the tragic and unexpected death of electronic dance music star Avicii.

The Swedish DJ and music producer, whose real name Tim Bergling, was found lifeless while on vacation with friends in Muscat, the capital city of Oman, last Friday, April 20. He was 28 years old.

No Foul Play

A few days after the music star's passing was confirmed and reported, the local authorities have conducted an autopsy on his body and ruled out any suspicion or foul play. The news comes from a public broadcaster from Avicii's mother country of Sweden on Sunday, April 22.

"Two postmortems were carried out ... and we can confirm that there is no criminal suspicion in the death," confirmed the Royal Oman Police.

In addition, the artist has been cleared to return back home. His immediate family including his parents, sisters, and brother are currently in Oman to retrieve his remains. He is expected to be repatriated this week.

Stockholm Celebrates Avicii

Avicii's Swedish fans have gathered in Stockholm, his hometown, on Saturday, April 21, to mourn the passing of the singer and to celebrate his music. Bergling broke into the scene back in the late '00s as part of the same wave that saw the rose of Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and the Swedish House Mafia.

This weekend, thousands of people gathered at the Swedish capital for a tribute that started with a minute of silence and followed by hours of music and dancing. The event was organized through Facebook.

"Avicii would not have wanted us to stand still. This has been a fitting tribute," said a fan.

"Everything about this is so sad, but it felt natural to come here," stated another attendee.

Avicii's friends from the music industry took the stage to share their favorite memories of DJ.
