Aaron Carter’s twin sister, Angel Carter, has revealed where her late brother is buried. Almost a year after the singer’s passing, Angel, 35, revealed the memorial site in a touching Instagram post on Friday, encouraging fans to pay their thoughts.
The caption that accompanied the image read, “Aaron’s portrait was placed this morning at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills. He adored his fans, and I know how much this would mean to him now, having a final resting place where we could all celebrate his life. I invite you to visit, share your memories, and never forget who Aaron was deep down. 🤍🕊.”
Aaron’s memorial showcases a portrait of the star on a gold plaque featuring his birth and death dates, as well as a nod to his 23-month-old son, Prince.
Tragically, Aaron passed away on November 5, 2022, due to accidental drowning after inhaling difluoroethane and taking alprazolam, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s report in April. He was just 34 years old when he was found in his California home’s bathtub at the time of his death, mere weeks before his son’s first birthday.
In July, Angel confirmed to PEOPLE that Aaron’s ashes had been interred, expressing the profound emotional impact of losing her twin brother and describing it as an “out-of-body experience.” She shared the experience of keeping his ashes at her home before the memorial service, saying, “To lose a twin, it’s an out-of-body experience. He’s a part of me. When he died, I had this sense of, ‘I’ve got to bring him home and protect him.’ It was my last way to protect him.”
She went on to say, “I can’t trust that anybody else is not going to exploit him. So, at that time, that was my last act of love.”
In a previous interview with PEOPLE, Angel also discussed her family’s struggles with addiction, which stemmed from the overwhelming fame and money her family experienced as her brothers, Nick and Aaron, achieved early success. She revealed that the death of her sister Leslie due to a drug overdose in 2012 had a devastating impact on Aaron, saying, “I always felt like that was the beginning of the end. Aaron was already in a bad place. I just kept waiting for him to snap out of it. But he never did.”
