Aaron Carter's death certificate reveals his body was cremated by family, ashes will be held by twin sister
Aaron’s siblings Angel and Nick revealed that they are raising a fund for mental health in the wake of their brother’s tragic death
LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Aaron Carter’s family has cremated his body as per the official death certificate. It also revealed that the first person of contact was singer’s mother Jane Carter, about his premature death as he allegedly drowned in a bathtub at his apartment.
As per the legal document obtained by TMZ, Carter’s ashes will be held by his twin sister, Angel Carter. The investigation is still on over the cause of his death, as police reportedly found ‘several cans of compressed air, and bottles of prescription pills’ at the scene. On November 5, the 34-year-old singer-actor was found dead in a bathtub in Lancaster, California. “The family has been notified and will be flying out to Los Angeles,” his representative had informed Page Six then. “Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family.” As per TMZ report, Aaron lawyers had advised him to raise to make a will after his son Prince was born in November, 2021 with his fiancee Melanie Martin.
According to The Sun, "Under California law, intestacy laws aren't affected by a custody agreement. A will is the only way to disinherit a child. Otherwise, the child is considered an heir. There is the question of who would control the assets because Prince is a minor and whether that would be the mother or some third party”, claimed Estate attorney Ryan Sellers. On her fiance's death, Melanie told TMZ, "My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it’s going to be a journey to raise a son without a father. Please respect the privacy of my family as we come to terms with the loss of someone we love greatly. We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated."
Aaron’s siblings Angel and Nick on Monday, November 14, revealed that they are raising fund together for mental health in the wake of their brother’s tragic death. “Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded,” the Backstreet Boys singer, 42, shared his heartfelt message on Instagram. “I have always held on to the hope that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss, but the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here," Nick wrote on November 6 post.
