Aaron Carter’s mother has released images of the horrifying scene where her son died, as she believes he was the victim of a crime and that he did not die because of an overdose.
Jane Carter posted several pictures of the tragic bathroom scene to her social media in a bid to bring the authorities’ attention back to the case.
The images were taken at Mr Carter’s home in Lancaster, California on the day of the troubled singer’s death on November 5 last year.
One of the pictures showed the bathtub where the I Want Candy singer died filled with discolored water, likely to be because of the natural bodily after effects of death.
The other images show towels sprawled across the bathroom floor, with more tinged water surrounding them.

Ms Cater said she had the full support of her son’s friends and family to post the images to bring attention back to the case.
She said she was not being taken seriously by them, and hoped the post detailing the awful scene of his death will lead law enforcement to reexamine Mr Carter’s death.
She also said it was wrong that police could ‘tromp through’ the house when the body was discovered by the housekeeper last year, and said there ‘should have been at least and investigation’.
‘Because of my son’s mental illness and prescription drug issues they [the police] just wanted it to be something easy that they didn’t have the time or inclination to address.’
The devastated mother added: ‘We want justice. We want answers.
‘There are people who must be held accountable.’
An autopsy conducted by the LA County Coroner’s Office already confirmed to Mr Carter’s family that he had not drowned.
The authorities found that he did not have any water in his lungs, so they believe he died in the bathtub following an overdose.

Mr Carter spent time at rehab in various stints between 2011 and 2017

But both Ms Carter and her son’s fiancée Melanie Martin, 30, have previously alleged a drug deal he made on the night that he died could have led him to overdose.
In an interview with TMZ in January, Martin said she had found text messages on Mr Carter’s phone from a man demanding $800 for an unknown substance.
Mr Carter, who spent time at rehab in various stints between 2011 and 2017, reportedly replied to the man claiming he no longer needed the substance, to which the man responded it didn’t matter as he still owed the money.
He then asked if he was being threatened, which is where the messages end.
Ms Martin submitted the text exchange to the Los Angeles Police Department as evidence following the tragic death.
The former child star Carter spent his life blighted by drug addiction. It was previously reported law enforcement found prescription pills and cans of compressed air in the bathroom where he died.
The star’s manager Taylor Helgeson said they had discussed him going into an inpatient rehab program, which had been met with resistance by Carter.
He said they considered three months in Utah ‘detoxing and formulating new physical habits’ – with Carter saying he wanted to focus on regaining custody of his one year-old son Prince before entering rehab.
