Bobbie Jean Carter, the sister of the late Aaron Carter, has tragically been found dead in the bathroom of her home.

As reported by Fox News, The Hillsborough Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Carter was found "unresponsive" in the bathroom of her Florida home. She was 41 years old.

According to the official statement: "On December 23, 2023, Hillsborough County Fire rescue crews arrived at the home located… in Tampa, and they discovered a woman who later was identified as Bobbie Jean Carter."

Despite immediate transportation to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Carter was declared dead by hospital medical staff at 8:02AM.

Law enforcement authorities from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office initiated a death investigation. It was revealed that Carter was on probation for cocaine possession, but her roommate stated: "She had not used any narcotics since her release from prison."

Officials found no narcotics or personal paraphernalia in Carter's room or bathroom, and no signs of foul play were observed.

A medical examiner’s officer has been notified, and deputies stayed with Carter’s 8-year-old daughter until her next of kin arrived from Orlando.

This tragic incident comes months after Carter's arrest for theft and possession of a controlled substance in June, as reported by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.

This tragic news comes just a year after her brother, Aaron, was tragically found lifeless in his home bathtub on November 5, 2022.

Confirmation of the news came from Carter's on-and-off fiancée, Melanie Martin, who shared a poignant statement with TMZ, saying: "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."

The couple had a one-year-old son named Prince.

The autopsy results, reported by TMZ, indicate that Carter died from drowning after ingesting alprazolam (Xanax) and inhaling compressed difluoroethane, commonly found in cans of compressed air. The report suggests he became "incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects" of the drugs and inhalation, leading to his accidental drowning.

Martin expressed confusion over the report, stating: "The results of the autopsy are not closure for me. It claims death is by drowning but also adds he was wearing a t-shirt and necklace in the bathtub which doesn't make sense, why would he be in a bathtub with clothes on? I am still in shock and still miss Aaron every day. I don't understand the chain of events and this report only has us asking more questions."

Our thoughts are with all those in the Carter family following these devastating incidents.
