An autopsy report, obtained by US media outlets, said he had died after becoming “incapacitated” and becoming “submerged underwater”.

The report from the Los Angeles medical examiner noted the effects of sedatives and inhaling gas as contributing to his death.

Alprazolam, often sold under the brand name Xanax, was found in Carter’s system as was the presence of difluoroethane.

“Difluoroethane is a gas commonly used as a propellant in air spray cleaners for electronic devices that can induce feelings of euphoria when inhaled,” the report stated.

“It is known to have cardiotoxic effects which can lead to cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac arrest.

“Alprazolam (a benzodiazepine) has depressant effects on the central nervous system which can cause drowsiness and sedation.”

It continued: “Based on the autopsy findings, investigative reports and circumstances, as currently known, Mr Carter became incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects of inhaling compressed gas and taking alprazolam.

“This resulted in him becoming submerged under water, unable to breath, and ultimately led to Aaron Carter death.”

The medical examiner ruled Carter’s death as an accident.
