Aaron Carter’s Autopsy Results Disclose Shocking Information About His Demise

A coroner’s report released Tuesday said that singer and rapper Aaron Carter drowned in his bathroom because he had taken sedatives and breathed in gas from spray cleaners.

According to the autopsy report from the Los Angeles county medical examiner-coroner, Carter’s body was discovered immersed in the bathtub of his Lancaster, California, home on November 5. He was 34 years old.

The sedative alprazolam, which is often sold under the brand name Xanax, and the compressed gas difluoroethane were both found in his system. According to the story, difluoroethane is “often used as a propellant in air spray cleaners” and “can induce feelings of euphoria when inhaled.”

The report said that the two drugs prevented him from getting out of the tub and caused him to drown.

Carter’s body was dissected the day after he died, but the results were kept secret while toxicology tests were done. These tests can take months.

Carter, the younger brother of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, was a child star and international musical superstar in his own right. He was a child star and international pop star whose biggest hits included “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” “I Want Candy,” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq.” Carter went on tour with the Backstreet Boys and had a great solo career. He put out his first album when he was only nine years old. Aaron’s Party (Come Get It), his second record, came out in 2000 and sold three million copies. The relationship between the former child star and his family got worse as he got older. He filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and went to rehab several times.
