In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the global community was struck with profound disbelief as news broke in November of 2022 that the once vibrant and talented Aaron Carter had tragically passed away in his own bathtub. Despite an initial autopsy, a definitive cause of death remained elusive as a toxicology report loomed. While speculation ran rampant, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office issued a statement putting to rest one theory: that drowning had played a role in the singer’s untimely demise, citing a notable absence of water in his lungs.
In the wake of Aaron Carter’s devastating passing, his mother, Jane Schneck, took the unprecedented step of releasing images of the scene where her son was discovered lifeless. Now, as the investigation into the singer’s untimely demise continues, two of his closest friends, Morgan Matthews and Bryan Cassidy, have come forward to make a shocking claim. They told Page Six that they also believe that his death needs to be investigated as a “potential homicide.”
“He would always be paranoid about people being after him or [that] somebody is after him,” explained Cassidy. ““[How Aaron’s body was found] gave me suspicion too because I was like, ‘Wait a minute, was he paranoid or was he not?’ I don’t want to point fingers, but it just doesn’t add up,” he continued.
Morgan Matthews, who not only served as Aaron Carter’s close friend but also his former manager, has alleged that Carter was frequently in the company of individuals with dubious motives, stating that he was often “around the wrong people.” During their time working together, Matthews also revealed that Carter brought up his paranoia.
“He said, ‘There are people after me, I need help, I need to get out of this town,’” Matthews recalled. “He was trying to leave. His house was for sale for a long time.”
Jane Schneck, the mother of the late Aaron Carter, has been vocal about her desire for a thorough investigation into her son’s untimely passing. Schneck has asserted that the coroner’s office prematurely ruled the death as an accidental overdose and failed to adequately explore the possibility of foul play due to Carter’s past drug issues.
In a Facebook post on March 1, Schneck revealed photographs depicting a bathtub stained with an ominous green liquid, scattered clothing, and what appeared to be feces spread across the floor. Schneck also raised concerns about the placement of towels on the bathroom floor, suggesting that it was a suspicious detail that warranted further investigation.
Aaron Carter’s fiance, Melanie Martin, told TMZ in January that text messages between the singer and an “unidentified person” in what appeared to be a drug deal days before his death were submitted as evidence.
The text messages reportedly showed a suspected drug dealer attempting to collect $800 from Carter for an unknown substance. The family believed that Carter may have later met with the drug dealer to obtain the substance and he might have taken it ultimately killing him.
Matthews emphasized that the singer was deeply passionate about his life and had no reason to take his own life.
“We do know that Aaron loved his life every day. He woke up, called us and he loved doing stuff every day. He loved his life. People who love their life don’t end it,” Matthews said.
Amid growing claims of suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Aaron Carter, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has released a statement to Rolling Stone magazine.
“Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the death of Aaron Carter. To date, there has been no evidence of foul play found during the investigation. The results of Mr. Carter’s autopsy are still pending. The investigation remains ongoing,” the statement read.
