Authorities are ruling out “criminal suspicion” in the death of the superstar, who died last week while vacationing in Oman.
Avicii was found dead Friday in the Omani capital of Muscat. A cause of death has not been released.
“Two postmortems were carried out … and we can confirm that there is no criminal suspicion in the death,” Royal Oman Police told CNN.
Avicii’s parents, two sisters and one brother are in the nation to repatriate his body this week, according to police in Oman, a popular vacation destination on the Arabian Peninsula.
His family is “completely devastated,” police said.
