It was in his bathtub that the lifeless body of Aaron Carter was found on Saturday November 5, 2022. The singer was only 34 years old. According to information from TMZ, relayed Monday, November 7, 2022, the former child star had suffered from addictions for years. He could have succumbed to an addiction to compressed air. Investigators reportedly found some at the scene of his death. Law enforcement sources said there were several canisters of compressed air in Aaron Carter’s bathroom and bedroom. The police also reportedly found several boxes of prescription drugs. For the moment, if the causes of Aaron Carter’s drowning are not precise, the cans of compressed air as well as the drugs found in his home can give some clues as to what led to his death.
Law enforcement sources also told our TMZ colleagues that the last time Aaron Carter was seen alive was at 2 a.m. on November 4, 2022. It was the governess who opened the door. Hearing the presence of the police, the singer asked them to leave and told his housekeeper that she should not disturb him. She had therefore not seen Aaron Carter the day of Friday, November 4 and had found him lifeless the next morning. Thus, for the investigators, the young father of the family would have remained a long time in his bathtub. According to TMZ, the cause of his death is currently considered undetermined until the toxicology results are given. Only, it will be necessary to wait several months before knowing them.
