Aaron Carter's twin sister Angel buries his ashes eight months after his death

Angel Carter has laid her twin brother Aaron Carter to rest after his tragic death late last year.

The 35-year-old sibling of the late singer, who died at his home in California in November 2022 at the age of 34, felt a need to ‘protect him’ and brought his ashes home earlier this year.

‘To lose a twin, it’s an out-of-body experience. He’s a part of me,’ she explained. ‘And it was like when he died, I had this sense of, “I’ve got to get him in my house. I’ve got to bring him home and protect him.” ‘

Speaking before his memorial service on July 28, she revealed her plans to bury his ashes the week after the memorial.

She told People: ‘I have him here. And for a few months after he died, it was my last way to protect him. I don’t want anybody to do anything weird with him. Now, I’m burying him next week at Forest Lawn.

‘I can’t trust that anybody else is not going to exploit him. So at that time, that was my last act of love.’

An autopsy previously found that Carter drowned in the bath after taking anti-anxiety drug Xanax and inhaling difluoroethane, which is used in cans of compressed air.

He ultimately and sadly slipped under the water and drowned, and his death has been officially ruled accidental.

The I Want Candy popstar’s struggles with mental illness were well documented throughout his life, as he lived with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and manic depression.

Since Carter’s death, his family has launched a fundraiser for mental health charities in his memory, and Angel – who ‘begged’ him to let her help him just two days before he died – doesn’t want his death to be ‘in vain’.

Angel – whose sister Leslie died from a drug overdose in 2012 – added to the publication: ‘It’s turned into something on a bigger scale where it’s like, “OK, we’ve got to get his story out there. We’ve got to not allow my brother and sister to die in vain and to use this as an example of what can happen.” ‘
