It’s been nearly four months since the tragic death of child prodigy Aaron Carter. The 34-year-old was found dead in his Lancaster, CA home by his housekeeper in early November. It was previously alleged Carter drowned in his bathtub, where he laid for hours until the cleaner made the gruesome discovery. Now, the mother of the former pop star released imagery from the scene in an effort to get another investigation underway.
Jane Carter, mom to Aaron and brother Nick, posted the photos to her Instagram account. “I want to share these death scene photos with you all because the coroner wrote it off as an accidental drug overdose,” she writes. TMZ has since shared the pictures, but be forewarned as they are extremely graphic. In one, the tub Aaron died is shown filled to the top with a green hue. Another shows the clothes he’d taken off prior, including a Champion hoodie and what appears to be tie-dye pants.
Aaron Carter’s Mom Doesn’t Believe Her Son Drowned
Aaron’s mother continues to allege police in the initial investigation looked over pertinent information. “They allowed people to go in and out[,] although a lot of potential homicide information was there for years. Aaron had a lot of death threats and many many people who were making his life miserable.” TMZ reported on Aaron Carter’s potential cause of death, and according to the L.A. County Coroner’s Office, water was not found in his lungs. This dismisses the idea that he passed from drowning, and instead happened due to a drug overdose. All in all, Aaron’s family stands on the fact that his death wasn’t intentional as they probe investigators.
Melanie Martin states a text exchange Aaron had with an unknown person is a solid clue into his unsolved death. The fiancé of the late singer-actor says he allegedly owed a dealer $800 for drugs. While Aaron told them he no longer needed it, the person still wanted him to cough up the cash. At this point, Aaron asked if he was being threatened, which received no response. Aaron Carter leaves behind a grieving family, including his one-year-old son, Prince Lyric.
