TMZ obtained photos from outside the residence which show multiple cop cars in the street with the home blocked off with caution tape. Homicide detectives were also sent to the singer's home, but law enforcement sources have not confirmed if there was any evidence of foul play discovered by detectives.
Although Carter had struggled with addiction for years, he claimed he had recently gotten clean. His cause of death is yet to be announced.

Prior to his shocking passing, Carter regularly sparked concerns from his fans due to his wildly erratic behavior on social media. As Radar previously reported, the I Want Candy artist not only shaved his head bald in April, claiming " F— what anyone thinks. I LOVE IT," but the month prior, he'd tattooed a huge, blue butterfly on the upper right side of his face to cover up the name of his on-again, off-again ex, Melanie Martin.
"Life is such a valuable learning lesson, IF you always it to be that." He continued, referring to his new ink, "This is my body and this tattoo by [Tattoo Mike] is to commemorate the passing of my sister Leslie Barbara Carter."
The former couple, who share 11-month-old son Prince, called it quits on their relationship only two months before the colorful coverup, and several weeks later, Martin filed a restraining order against the former teen heartthrob, accusing him of breaking three of her ribs in a physical altercation.
"He is upset that I talked to another man so he got violent because he is upset," she stated in the court filing. "He tried to threaten me with a fake allegation If I didn’t leave after and all my things were still at the house and my baby as well."
However, she later walked back her accusations, insisting that he had never abused her and that she had made the claims due to suffering from severe postpartum depression.
