The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office has ruled the death of singer and rapper Aaron Carter was an accident.

The “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” musician died from drowning and the effects of difluoroethane and alprazolam — a generic form of Xanax, according to the autopsy report viewed by Urban Hollywood 411.

Difluoroethane is a colorless, odorless gas used in spray cleaning canisters for computers. According to the National Institutes of Health, Difluoroethane is sometimes abused by “sniffing, bagging, and huffing” to induce feelings of euphoria.

Carter died at his home in Lancaster, California, on Nov. 5, 2022. He was 34.

A house sitter found him unresponsive in a bathtub and called 911. Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a possible drowning at the home in the 42500 block of Valley Vista Drive, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release at the time. Once fire department personnel arrived on scene, the singer was pronounced dead.

Carter had a history of substance abuse. In 2017, one of his reps confirmed that he was in rehab after the performer shared on social media: “I would like to tell all of you that I will be disappearing for a while to work on myself.”

Just weeks before his death, police went to Carter’s house after fans called authorities for a welfare check because he appeared to be huffing on Instagram Live, TMZ reported on Sept. 25.

The singer was the younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.

Born in Tampa, Florida, in 1987, Aaron sold a million copies of his self-titled debut album at age 9. His 2000 follow-up Aaron’s Party sold 3 million copies in the U.S. alone.

He made guest appearances on Nickelodeon shows and toured with the Backstreet Boys. Carter also appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
