The family of world-famous DJ Avicii have arrived in Oman, where the musician’s body was found.

Oman Police said Avicii’s parents, brother and two sisters are in the country to organise the return of his body. The authorities also said the family are ‘completely devastated’, reports People Magazine.

According to a source in the Oman police force, there is ‘no criminal suspicion’ around the death of the DJ.

The Grammy-nominated electronic dance artist, born Tim Birling, died at the age of 28 on Friday and his body was found in Muscat, Oman.

Avicii’s body is set to be flown home to Sweden later this week.

The cause of death is still unclear, although a source claims that there is absolutely no criminal suspicion behind it following two post-mortem examinations.

The latest update was revealed by a Sky News source in the Oman police force who said ‘we absolutely confirmed that there is no criminal suspicion of death’.

Thousands gathered to mourn the Swedish born musician – who was known for his EDM hits Wake Me Up, Levels and Hey Brother – at Sergels Torg in central Stockholm.

AVICII’S FIVE BIGGEST EDM HITS I Could Be The One

He scored his first UK number one in February 2013 alongside Dutch DJ Nicky Romero with I Could Be The One. The track, which features uncredited vocals from Swedish singer Noonie Bao, also topped the charts in Hungary and entered the top ten in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Ireland.

Collide

Avicii had to fight his way into the mainstream. In 2011 X Factor winner Leona Lewis and her record label, Syco, had to settle a legal dispute with the DJ after he claimed they used an instrumental that was a direct copy of his own song, Fade Into Darkness. Collide was eventually released as a collaboration between Lewis and Avicii which skyrocketed his career and scored a number four in the charts.

Wake Me Up

Taken from his hugely successful debut album, True, Wake Me Up saw Avicii pick up his second number one in the UK charts. The track – featuring Aloe Blacc’s vocals – was the lead single for the album and became a 2013 summer anthem.

Lay Me Down

Also taken from True, Lay Me Down saw Avicii team up with Nile Rodgers and Adam Lambert. Rodgers lends his songwriting and guitar backing skills while Lambert – who performed the single during his own solo tour – is on vocals.

Hey Brother

Again off True, Hey Brother was an instant commercial success. American bluegrass singer Dan Tyminski lends his vocals for the track which came from Avicii offering his brother advice. An official music video released in 2013 saw two brothers growing up in wartime America, with the older brother dying in the Vietnam war.
