Medical Examiners Release Official Cause of Death for Singer Aaron Carter

The pop star Aaron Carter, who died at age 34 in November 2022, was found to have drowned in his bathtub after taking a drug called alprazolam and inhaling compressed difluoroethane, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. The manner of death was ruled an accident, as reported by Fox News.

Alprazolam is the generic form of Xanax, a medication used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. Difluoroethane is an aerosol propellant found in spray cans, which can cause euphoria and hallucinations when abused. The autopsy report stated that Carter became incapacitated due to the mixture of drugs while in his tub and drowned after going under the water. Prescription drug bottles and multiple cans of compressed air were found in his home in Lancaster, CA.

Carter rose to fame at age nine after releasing his self-titled debut album in 1997. His follow-up album, 2000’s “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” sold over three million copies in the U.S. and produced several hit singles including the title song, “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq”. He also appeared in several TV shows and movies, such as Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Supercross.

He is survived by his one-year-old son, Prince, whom he shared with fiancée, Melanie Martin. Martin has expressed her doubts about the official cause of death, saying that she still has “more questions” and that some factors do not add up. She also claimed that there were two “suspicious” people in Carter’s home when he died, as reported by Monsters and Critics .

Carter’s death shocked his fans and fellow celebrities, who paid tribute to him on social media and at various events. His older brother, Nick Carter, who is a member of the Backstreet Boys, dedicated a song to him at a London concert shortly after his death. He also posted a heartfelt message on Instagram, saying that he will “always love” his brother.

Carter’s death also raised awareness about the dangers of drug abuse and mental health issues among celebrities and young people. He had struggled with addiction and bipolar disorder for years, and had appeared on several reality shows and documentaries to share his story and seek help. He had also faced legal troubles and personal conflicts with his family and ex-girlfriends.

It’s a sad reminder that money can’t buy happiness. His mental state got the best of him causing him to abuse drugs which led to his demise.
