Aaron Carter’s family does not believe he got drowned in the bathtub where he was found dead.
The cause of death of Carter, who was discovered dead at his residence in Los Angeles, has yet to be determined by authorities. Despite the lack of conclusive evidence, his family and friends have spoken out, asserting their belief that his death was not the result of drowning. They are still awaiting updates from the investigation.
Carter’s fiancée, Melanie Martin, and his mother, Jane Carter, recently shared new information about the “I’m All About You” singer’s condition after he was found.
They told a news outlet that the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office informed them they found no water in his lungs. It rules out drowning as a possible cause of death.
Melanie and Jane have stated that they are yet to receive the toxicology results which would reveal the substances present in the singer’s body during his death, and if they played a role in his passing. The family is also requesting that the police conduct an investigation into the supposed drug transaction that took place on the night before the singer’s demise.
Carter was found in his bathtub by his house helper on Nov. 5 when she tried to check on him and ask him if he wanted coffee. However, she found him in that condition, prompting him to call the authorities.
The Los Angeles Police Department and investigators responded to the scene. Upon seeing his body, police suspected he had been submerged in the bathtub for a long time because of the water’s color and his skin’s condition.
They, however, clarified that no foul play was involved despite receiving the report as a suspicious death.
The authorities collected multiple cans of compressed air in his bathroom and bedroom. Prescription pills were also retrieved from the scene.
Aaron Carter’s Death Was NOT Intentional
Melanie and Jane made a statement contradicting the family’s claims that Carter had been planning to end his life for a while. Instead, according to reports, Carter was getting ready for a holiday with Melanie and their child, and he had reached out to his family counselor and social worker to improve his parenting skills.
There was also a rumor claiming Carter died by suicide.
One said, “CW: death, suicide. Just saw that Aaron Carter was found dead this morning, and it looks like it was probably suicide. He was openly bisexual, and the same age as I am now, and a big part of my childhood culture. It’s sad and strange, and I hope he and his family find peace.” Moreover, The same claim has since been dismissed.
