Aaron Carter’s tragic death has been confirmed by autposy.
The tragedy was the result of a deadly combination of prescription drugs and inhaling compressed difluoroethane, as stated in the recently released autopsy report.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s findings indicate that Aaron drowned in the bathtub of his Lancaster home after becoming “incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects” of the drugs and huffing.
The report further revealed that Aaron had taken alprazolam, the generic form of Xanax, and had also inhaled compressed difluoroethane, which is commonly used as a propellant in cans of compressed air.
The toxic combination of these substances led to Aaron being rendered unable to protect himself and slipping under the water, resulting in his tragic drowning.
The official cause of Aaron’s death has been ruled as accidental.
Aaron’s ex-fiancée and mother of his child expressed her disbelief and confusion at the autopsy results.
She stated, “The results of the autopsy are not closure for me. It claims death is by drowning but also adds he was wearing a t-shirt and necklace in the bathtub which doesn’t make sense, why would he be in a bathtub with clothes on? I am still in shock and still miss Aaron every day. I don’t understand the chain of events and this report only has us asking more questions.”
The autopsy report also revealed disturbing details about the scene where Aaron was found.
Multiple cans of Surf Onn compressed air, along with several prescription bottles, were discovered in both the bathroom and bedroom of his home.
Clothing items such as a beanie, sweatshirt, and pants were also found near the bathtub, with a nozzle tip from one of the compressed air cans found in a front pocket of the sweatshirt.
Aaron’s fiancée, Melanie Martin, had previously suspected that drugs were involved in his death, given his well-documented struggles with substance abuse.
She had revealed that there was a text exchange on Aaron’s phone indicating he owed someone $800 for an unknown substance, and she had submitted the exchange to authorities for further investigation.
Aaron’s mother, Jane, had also raised concerns about the circumstances of her son’s death.
In early March, she shared a series of photos from Aaron’s bathroom on the day he was found, suggesting that it was not simply an overdose but a potential crime scene, and speculating that Aaron may have been a victim of foul play.
She had the support of Aaron’s family and friends in bringing attention back to the case and seeking answers.
The autopsy results have shed light on the tragic events that led to Aaron Carter’s untimely death.
The combination of prescription drugs and inhalation of compressed difluoroethane proved to be a lethal mix, causing Aaron to become incapacitated and ultimately drown in his own bathtub.
