The family of Avicii has arrived in Oman to claim the DJ's body amid a search for answers in his as yet unexplained death. On Sunday, authorities in the Gulf state revealed that foul play has been ruled out in the case. Avicii, born Tim Bergling, was found dead while on vacation in Muscat on Friday. His parents and siblings traveled to the capital city to repatriate his body to their native Sweden, cops told CNN. The Royal Oman Police also confirmed to the network that two postmortems have taken place, though no cause of death has been revealed. The electronic dance music star, who the AP says helped pioneer the musical genre, was just 28. (More Avicii stories.)
