Death of Aaron Carter, Dancing with the Stars alum, ruled an accident

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner has released Aaron Carter’s full autopsy report. The singer and Dancing with the Stars alum took prescription pills and huffed before his death, according to the report.

The findings show Aaron drowned in the bathtub of his Lancaster home, according to TMZ, but he took alprazolam (generic Xanax) and inhaled compressed difluoroethane, which is the propellant used in cans of compressed air.

The report says he became “incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects” of the drugs and the huffing and ultimately he slipped under the water and drowned. The autopsy report rules Aaron’s death as an accidental drowning.

According to the report, there were multiple cans of Surf Onn compressed air found in a bathroom and bedroom. Additionally, authorities found several prescription bottles in the home.

Several clothing items were found near the bathtub, including a beanie, sweatshirt and pants. A nozzle tip to one of the compressed air cans was found in a front pocket of that sweatshirt.

Back in November, The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that that Aaron’s house sitter found his body in the bathtub in his Lancaster, Calif. home and called authorities. Law enforcement sources said they received a 911 call that a male had drowned in the tub.
