Avicii committed suicide with broken glass he used to cut himself.
According to TMZ, the method of death was a shard of glass that caused massive bleeding, possibly a wine bottle. Two sources say the point of injury was Avicii's neck but another strongly denies that, saying it was his wrist. This has not been confirmed, yet.
The 28-year-old was found dead April 20 in the Middle Eastern country of Oman. He battled alcohol problems for years, and his friends worried those issues would eventually kill him.
Here's the full statement from his family:
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. 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.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.
