The mother of singer Aaron Carter shared new photos of the scene left behind in her late son’s bathroom to call more attention to the ongoing investigation.
Jane Schneck posted the graphic pictures of the bathroom, which showed what appeared to be faeces on the floor and a tub filled with green water, and noted that the images weren’t taken by law enforcement, reported the New York Post’s Page Six section.
The I Want Candy singer was found dead at his home in early November surrounded by cans of compressed air and prescription pill bottles. He was 34.
The coroner ruled out drowning as the cause of death because Carter didn’t have any water in his lungs.
“Still trying to get a real investigation for the death of my son Aaron Carter,” she wrote on Facebook, adding that she believes the coroner wrote off her son’s cause of death “as an accidental overdose”.
“They never investigated it as a possible crime scene because of his addiction past.”
Ms Schneck also included photos that showed towels laid down on the floor and a pile of soiled clothes and added that the images hadn’t been snapped by police.
“But they allowed people to go in and out. Although a lot of potential homicide information was there for years,” she continued.
“Aaron had a lot of death threats and many, many people who were making his life miserable.”
Ms Schneck said she was supported by her closest family and friends to post the gruesome photos because they haven’t been “taken seriously by law enforcement,” especially in the town of Lancaster, north of Los Angeles, where the Aaron’s Party crooner died.
“Because of my son’s mental illness and prescription drug issues they just wanted it to be something easy that they didn’t have the time or inclination to address,” she continued.
“This won’t work for me or Melanie [Martin],” she said of Aaron’s on-again, off-again fiancee, “or anyone who truly loved him. We want answers. We want justice. There are people who must be held accountable”.
Ms Schneck said she hoped legal commenter and journalist Nancy Grace agrees to look into their case but knows she’s “busy with Murdaugh trial but it’s almost over now”.
Ms Martin later told website TMZ that she and Ms Schneck suspected he ingested a drug that was given to him by a dealer who had texted him that he “owed $800 ($A1189) for an unknown substance”.
Carter allegedly told the unidentified person he “didn’t need the substance anymore,” but the contact told him he still needed to pay.
The last message in the chain reportedly showed Carter asking whether he was “being threatened”.
The exchange led Ms Martin and Ms Schneck to believe that the singer did meet up with the possible drug dealer and “took a substance that could have ultimately killed him”.
