Omani officials have ruled out any “criminal suspicion” in the death of Avicii after conducting two postmortems on the superstar DJ.
Royal Oman Police confirmed to CNN autopsies were conducted on Avicii, born Tim Bergling, two days after the 28-year-old Swede was found dead at a Muscat resort.
A cause of death has not yet been released.
Omani media reports Bergling’s body has been cleared to leave the country, and members of his family have arrived in the nation on the Arabian Peninsula.
Earlier, thousands of fans gathered in Stockholm to pay tribute to the muso, whose hits dominated the EDM genre and whose live shows packed arenas around the world.

Bergling was open about his struggles with alcohol abuse and quit touring in 2016, citing a focus on new endeavours for his decision.
“Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way,” he said at the time.
“It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.”
