As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Avicii was found dead in his Oman hotel room this past April 20. He was 28 at the time.

At the time, a spokesperson at the Muscat Governorate Police Headquarters exclusively told Radar that drugs were discovered at the scene. The shocking news came after the musician's family suggested Avicii had committed suicide.

"He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer," they said in a statement following his sad death.

It has not yet been revealed when Avicii's body will be buried.
