the morning of November 5, 2022 found the lifeless body of Aaron Carter (34 years old). The singer, brother of one of the members of street boyswas found in the bathroom of his home in Lancaster (California, USA).

The news has splashed many music stars who years ago had a good relationship with the singer. One of them, of course, was his brother Nick Carter:

“My heart is broken. Although My brother and I had a complicated relationship, my love for him never faded. I have always held out hope that one day I want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help I so desperately need. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is drug addiction and mental illness are the real bad guys here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know,” the singer wrote in a moving farewell to his brother.

Now, a few months after the singer suddenly left this world, Aaron Carter’s cause of death has been revealed. The autopsy report revealed that the artist died of drowning after inhaling difluoroethane and ingesting alprazolam (a generic form of Xanax).

This is how the Los Angeles County Forensic Department collects it in a report in which they also point out that the death was declared accidental.

Aaron Carter’s Ghosts

Aaron Carter, in addition to being known to his brother, took advantage of Nick’s notoriety very early on and took part in some of the tours of the street boysas well as that of another great pop star, Britney Spears.

Already in the 90s, he began to make his small hole in the world of the small screen with sporadic appearances in successful series at that time, such as Lizzie McGuire oh sabrina. He also had his background in the music industry, highlighting I want some candy as his best-known theme.

But, like any young star, it wasn’t all fame and money in the singer’s life. His brother’s fame and the popularity that little Carter himself gained did not erase other past traumas —he was arrested with his ex-girlfriend for drug possession— and those of his family —his sister Leslie suffered from depression and died in 2012 of a drug overdose and his mother was abused and a drug addict—.

A few years before his death, Aaron Carter came forward and opened up about mental health issues on the show. The doctors“The official diagnosis is that I suffer from multiple personality disorders: schizophrenia, acute anxiety, I’m manic-depressivea condition also known as bipolarity.”
