Law enforcement officers reportedly responded to an 11 a.m. call and found Carter’s body in his bathtub, according to TMZ. The singer developed a career as a rapper and actor but had also struggled with addiction in recent years. It appears Carter drowned in his tub, but there have been no reports indicating if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time, according to TMZ.

Homicide detectives are investigating the scene, which is currently taped off with crime tape. It has been reported that many sheriff’s cars and paramedics were seen around Carter’s home. There has been no information released about possible foul play at this time, according to TMZ.
