Carter’s autopsy was conducted the next day, but the cause of death was not officially certified until 14 April due to delays in test results.

According to the autopsy report, in the days following Carter’s death, law enforcement responded to Carter’s home several times because he had been abusing drugs. About a week ago, his fiancee requested that Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies conduct a wellness check because “she believed he was under the influence while driving his RV.” The report states that deputies approached him, but he was not arrested for drunk driving.
The morning before his death, after receiving a report that Carter had been huffing on Instagram Live, deputies again responded to his home for another wellness check. When the deputies arrived, Carter was inside his home and “yelling at them to get out the stairs,” so the officers left.
Both Carter’s fiancée and his mother told investigators from the coroner’s office that Carter did not commit suicide. According to the report, the singer was supposed to check in with his drug counselor the evening before his death, but missed a phone appointment “without explanation”.

After the death of his brother, Nick Carter posted a photo Instagram, “Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for the loss,” he wrote in the caption, “but the truth is that addiction and mental illness are the real villains here.”
