While the official cause of Carter’s death has still remained a mystery, the authorities believe his body had been in the tub for some time as there was a smell of decomposition, when they arrived at the crime scene. The law enforcement sources also claim that they recovered cans of compressed air and prescription pills from his bedroom and bathroom. However, no suicide note was found at the scene, and there were also no signs of foul play.

Aaron was just 34-year-old when he passed away. He is survived by his siblings and 11-months-old son Prince, whom he shared with his fiancée Melanie Martin. The couple started dating in early 2020. Soon, Carter revealed in March that Martin was pregnant after she suffered a miscarriage in June 2020. The couple then announced their engagement on June 12, 2020, with an Instagram post and welcomed their son, Prince, in November 2021.

The death of the young talented artist has left his older brother Nick Carter devastated. Talking about the loss, Nick paid a tribute to his brother with a long Instagram post reading, "My heart is broken. Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded. 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. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz.”
