Aaron Carter’s Family Speaks Out About His Cause of Death
Aaron Carter tragically passed away in November, and now his family is speaking out about what they think happened to the pop star.
As previously reported, his official cause of death is being deferred pending toxicology results.
His fiancée Melanie Martin and mother Jane Carter, however, have some information from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office. They tell TMZ that although Aaron was found in a bathtub, he did not drown. There was no water found in his lungs.
Melanie has turned over a text exchange from the suspected deal that she found on Carter’s phone. According to TMZ, the messages included someone telling Aaron he owed $800 for a substance, but the singer told them he didn’t need it. The person responded that he still owed the money. Aaron asked if he was being threatened and the conversation ends there.
The family tells TMZ they are concerned that Aaron met with the person and took a substance that caused a fatal overdose.
Since his passing the family has shared that Aaron’s remains were cremated and that the family plans to spread his ashes in his home state of Florida.
