Aaron Carter fans are heartbroken to learn new details surrounding the tragic and sudden death of the 34-year-old singer.

Today, officials shared details about Carter’s passing with TMZ. Carter had been battling addiction for years and had recently attended an inpatient rehabilitation program. But he allegedly suffered a relapse. And he became addicted to huffing compressed air.

Police say that they found evidence that Carter had been huffing on the day of his death. Multiple cans of compressed air were found in his bathroom and bedroom. He also had prescription pills on hand.

Officials did not say whether the pills or huffing caused his drowning. However, it is a pivotal clue in the investigation.

After the update broke, fans began mourning yet another young celebrity lost to addiction.

“Being addicted shouldn’t mean a death sentence but for many, this is the outcome that happens all too often…Condolences to his family and friends,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“I think people like Aaron Carter f*** me up because it’s just so incredibly sad top to bottom that their whole lives have been nothing but tragedy and you want a happy ending for a tortured soul like that,” said @BombCandice. “So when they don’t get it, it’s just sad. I hope he has peace now.”

Authorities Believe Aaron Carter Died on Friday, Nov 4

TMZ also reported that Aaron Carter was last seen alive at 2 am on Friday. Police allegedly visited Carter’s house around that time for a welfare check, and his live-in housekeeper answered the door. When the singer heard why the officers were there, he ordered them to leave. Then he told his housekeeper not to bother him.

Who asked the police for the welfare check is unknown.

The housekeeper did not see Carter again for the rest of that day. But Early Saturday morning, she went to his bedroom to offer him coffee and heard his dog barking inside. She ran inside and found Carter dead in his tub.

Police believe Aaron Carter passed away long before his body was found because there were signs of decomposition and the water had turned an abnormal color.

As stated earlier, the L.A. County Coroner’s Office has ruled that a drug overdose led to the singer’s death. As of yet, not cause has been determined, and toxicology results could take weeks or months to return. Investigators do not currently suspect suicide or murder as no note was found and there were no signs of foul play.

This is a developing story.
