Aaron Carter’s family plans to put some of his ashes in the same grave as those of his sister Leslie, who died at the age of 25 in 2012.
Carter’s mother, Jane, informed TMZ that the singer had been cremated and that his ashes would be strewn in the Florida Keys next spring. The Carters also plan to save some of the ashes so that they can spread them with Jane’s ashes when she dies.
Melanie Martin, who is engaged to Carter, will not be at their upcoming wedding in the Keys, his family says.
Jane told her son she loved him and said that the two of them had been texting just a few days before he died. She said that Carter sent her a text message to see how she and her family were doing in Florida.
In 2006, Carter’s twin sister Angel and the brothers were in an episode of the E! reality show “House of Carters” together. On November 5, his body was found in a bathtub at his home in Lancaster. He sang “I Want Candy” and “Aaron’s Party.” He was 34.
A source says that drugs and compressed-air canisters were found by detectives in the home’s main bedroom and bathroom. A source who knew about the investigation but wasn’t allowed to talk about it publicly said that Carter’s body had been in the bath water for a while before it was found.
The coroner’s office in Los Angeles County did an autopsy on Carter and waited to say what caused his death until the results of chemical tests came back.

Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, who have had trouble getting along with his siblings, said in a statement that his “baby brother” died because of “addiction and mental illness.”
Carter has been open about his mental health problems and said in 2019 that he had multiple personality disorders, schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression.
He said earlier this year that he was going to rehab for the fifth time to get Prince, his 10-month-old son, back from his fiancée’s mother, who was taking care of him because of a court order. (He and Martin lost custody of their son because of worries about domestic violence and drug use.)
Carter’s former manager, Taylor Helgeson, told Page Six that “nonstop” and “relentless” cyberbullying “did a number” on the late singer, who had been open about his huffing habit.
