STOCKHOLM — Sweden’s public broadcaster said police in Oman have conducted two autopsies on the body of Grammy-nominated electronic dance DJ Avicii, who died Friday at age 28.

Public broadcaster SVT, citing information from an anonymous police official in Oman, reported on Sunday the autopsies revealed nothing suspicious, and foul play has been ruled out in the performer’s death.

The broadcaster said the body has been cleared to be taken back to Avicii’s native Sweden, where he was born as Tim Bergling. Fans in Stockholm observed a minute of silence in his honor on Saturday.

Swedish tabloid Expressen said Avicii stayed at the Muscat Hills Resort while vacationing in Oman. Expressen said he spent time with friends, went kite surfing and enjoyed the country so much that he was planning to stay a few extra days.    /kga
