Family confirms Avicii’s cause of death still under investigation

Avicii’s family have thanked his fans for their “loving words” after his death last week.

The ‘Wake Me Up’ hitmaker – whose real name is Tim Bergling – was just 28 when he passed away whilst on holiday in Muscat, Oman, on Friday (20.04.18), and three days after his passing, his family has released a statement showing gratitude to the DJ’s fans.

The statement read:

“We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words of our son and brother. We are so grateful to everyone who loved Tim’s music and has precious memories of his songs.”

“Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world. We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way.

With love, The Tim Bergling Family.”

Avicii’s cause of death is still yet to be revealed, but police confirmed over the weekend that autopsies had led to the conclusion that “there is no criminal suspicion in the death”.

The tragic passing of the ‘Hey Brother’ musician was confirmed in a statement by his publicist.

It read: “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Avicii had been open about his health issues in the past and had previously retired from touring. He had been battling with acute pancreatitis – which is a potentially life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas – due in part to excessive drinking and had his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014.
