Police arrived at Carter's home in Lancaster around 11 am on Saturday after they received a distressing call that a male had drowned in the bathtub. According to the 911 operator, FIRE/EMS units needed to be deployed at the estate for a "female yelling" and making a cryptic reference to "in the tub," reported the source. The chaotic outbreak was also overheard by neighbors who claimed they heard Aaron's employee screaming "he's dead, he’s dead" when she discovered his body.

By the time the paramedic arrived at the scene, the 34-year-old was already dead. Authorities are probing the case and have not released an official cause of death. However, law enforcement sources have reported that they will be investigating Carter's past drug use. The pop star debuted his singing career in the late 1990s. During his teens, Carter opened shows for the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears and signed his first record deal aged nine. Carter rose to fame during the same time as his brother Nick Carter, who was a part of the popular boy band the Backstreet Boys.

Sadly, since the peak of his singing career, he has suffered from opioid addiction. A source said the famous 'I Want Candy' singer had recently checked into rehab for the fifth time, according to Distractify. "Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family," added the source. "Unfortunately without proper recovery facilities available in our country and open borders, this is why we have an epidemic."

Carter was survived by his fiancée Melanie Martin and his son, Prince, who was only 11 months old. Hours after the singer's death, Martin was pictured outside Carter's home, sobbing and burying her head in her hands as she broke down in tears. Martin broke the tragic news of the death of her fiancée to TMZ saying, "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."
