The family of Avicii has issued its second statement of the week.

And this latest message appears to shed some revealing light on just what happened to the late DJ.

Avicii in Vegas

First, as previously reported, it’s worth mentioning that Avicii was found dead last Friday at the young age of 28.

The Swedish musician was in Muscat, Oman the time and the details surrounding his passing have been shrouded in mystery ever since the sad news was broken by his publicist.

Was Avicii’s death related to a former diagnosis of pancreatitis?

Was it related to the DJ’s hard-partying lifestyle, which prompted Avicii to take a hiatus from touring a couple years ago?

We still don’t know for certain.

Now, however, the aforementioned statement from Avicii’s loved ones makes it seem as if the artist took his own life.

Avicii Does His Thing

"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions," opens this statement, which then continues as follows:

"An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.

"When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.

"He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace."

We need to stop right there for a minute.

The last thing we want to do is speculate on the Avicii cause of death here, but he could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace​?

It’s difficult to interpret this part of the statement as anything other than an admission that Avicii committed suicide.

The statement concludes:

Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.

Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed.

The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.

Two days ago, these same family members issued their first statement since Avicii passed away.

It read:

"We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother.

"We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have 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."

The DJ was known as an early support of the EDM movement, bringing that type of music to clubs all around the world.

His most successful hits included singles such as  "Levels," "Wake Me Up" and "Hey Brother."

We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones.

And we promise to update this site with the artist’s official cause of death once it is made public.

May Avicii rest in peace.
