Aaron Carter's ex breaks silence as autopsy details his cause of death

Aaron Carter's ex-fiancée has opened up about his death following the release of the singer's autopsy results, which showed he drowned in his bathtub after taking a concoction of drugs.

Melanie Martin, who shared a child with the singer, told TMZ that the results have not brought her closure.

"It claims death is by drowning but also adds he was wearing a t-shirt and necklace in the bathtub which doesn't make sense, why would he be in a bathtub with clothes on?" she asked.

"I am still in shock and still miss Aaron every day. I don’t understand the chain of events and this report only has us asking more questions."

The report, which was obtained by TMZ, said that the singer had become "incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects" of the drugs.

It's said that this resulted in him slipping underneath the bath water and drowning.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's report means that his death is officially ruled as an accident.

Melanie revealed to TMZ that there had been a text exchange on Aaron's phone that indicated he owed someone $800 for an unknown substance.

She said that she had passed the exchange to authorities for further investigation.

Aaron's mother, Jane, has urged the police to open up a more thorough investigation into her son's death and suspects there could have been foul play.

Sharing photos of the scene, the grieving mum said she wanted to post the photos "because the coroner wrote it off as an accidental drug overdose".

"They never investigated it as a possible crime scene because of his addiction past," she added.

"Look at the photos. They were not taken by the police. But they allowed people to go in and out.".

She added that Aaron "had a lot of death threats and many many people who were making his life miserable."

Aaron was 34 when he died in November last year.

His son was born in November 2021.
