The news of Avicii's passing on April 20 shocked the music world, prompting many fellow DJs and producers to send their best wishes to the Swedish superstar's family and friends. Several acts paid tribute to the late DJ during their Coachella sets after hearing of the star's passing as a way to honor him and his music. While it had been hinted in a statement released by his family that suicide was a likely cause of death, it has reportedly been confirmed by TMZ's sources.
In a statement written by his direct family members, suicide was alluded to in the following lines: "He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace." According to TMZ, the DJ's death was caused by self-inflicted cuts from glass. Avicii had reportedly suffered massive amounts of blood loss following the cuts, which may have come from a broken wine bottle, according to the publication. The point of injury has not been confirmed as some sources state that the wound was on his neck with others remarking it was on his wrist.
Avicii was found deceased on April 20 at a luxury resort in Oman. He was seemingly happy days before his passing as he posed for photos with fans.
