Just days after news of the DJ's tragic death, his family shared a second statement about his passing, implying that he took his own life. The statement read, “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress,” read the family’s statement, translated from Swedish. “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.”

Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.”
