Aaron Carter’s neighbors said they heard someone screaming, ‘he’s dead, he’s dead’ when a staff member found the former star unresponsive in a bathtub at his California home.
Cater, 34, the brother of famed pop icon and Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, was found dead of what his friends suspect was a drug overdose, sources told The U.S. Sun.
One neighbor, a local photojournalist, told The U.S. Sun that he heard on his police scanner the call come in that there was an unresponsive male in the bathtub.
His wife, a nurse, rushed over with her AED [automated external defibrillator] with her and banged on the door, he said.
‘A woman answered the door and was screaming “he’s dead, he’s dead” but wouldn’t let us in because she’d already called the cops, he said.
Representatives for Carter’s family confirmed the singer’s death. His fiance, Melanie Martin, who was spotted outside his house breaking down in tears, asked for privacy as the family grieves.

Law enforcement said they received a 911 call at 11 a.m. on Saturday, saying ‘a male had drowned in the tub.’ They were contacted by a house sitter, who had found his body, the sheriff’s department told DailyMail.com.
Witnesses described a ‘chaotic’ scene at the singer’s house on Saturday, with police cars, news vans and people crowding in the streets to see what happened.
Carter’s photojournalist neighbor Tony Cheval, went into more detail about his nurse wife who encountered the screaming woman at his door.
‘A woman answered the door and was screaming ‘he’s dead, he’s dead’ but wouldn’t let us in because she’d already called the cops.
‘I spoke to Melanie afterward and she said it was his maid, and questioned why she wouldn’t let us in.
‘Melanie drove up from Orange County, she was distraught.’
Another witness said The U.S. Sun that Carter’s house-sitter looked ‘shaken’ and spoke to police inside before being escorted out with belongings in bags.
The witness added: ‘The house-sitter was the only person behind the police tape for a long.’
Homicide detectives were dispatched to the scene, but there is no information or evidence of foul play at this time. Emergency services have been spotted outside Carter’s Lancaster home, which has been cordoned off with police tape.
A coroner was seen removing Carter’s body from the home later Saturday.

Carter, who opened for the Backstreet Boys on a 1997 tour, shot to fame in the 90s releasing four studio albums, starting with his self-titled debut album in 1997 when he was only 9 years old.
The 34-year-old notably battled addiction for many years, facing legal troubles and entering rehabilitation while continuing with his music career, according to E!.
In 2019, he revealed on ‘The Doctors’ that he was diagnosed with ‘multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression,’ according to CNN.
The troubled celebrity is survived by his son Prince.
Prince’s mother and on-again-off-again girlfriend, Melanie Martin, posted to Tik Tok crying just minutes after the announcement.
Martin can be seen driving while crying into the camera which is filming the short video.
She released a statement later Saturday: ‘My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it’s going to be a journey to raise a son without a father. Please respect the privacy of my family as we come to terms with the loss of someone we love greatly. We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.’
In the embattled rapper’s last performance before his untimely death he can be heard singing that ‘he’ll be gone but it’s not for long’.
The video was posted to Instagram just a day before the shock announcement.
Martin was spotted later Saturday in tears arriving at Carter’s Lancaster home.
Carter has two sisters, one of which is his twin, Angel and Leslie, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 25 from a drug overdose.
