Aaron Carter‘s housekeeper — who discovered his body — is a homeless woman he’d taken in … TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar tell us … Aaron and his fiancée, Melanie Miller, went down to Orange County last month for a few nights to visit their son, Prince … who’s currently under the care of Melanie’s mom, as neither parent had physical custody of the child.
While they were in the OC, we’re told Aaron and Melanie got word of a possible break-in at their house … their front door was open and someone left behind cigarette butts.
Our sources say when they got back to Lancaster, a friend urged them … to get someone to house-sit for them if/when they left. Turns out, the friend had a woman in mind from his church … who happened to be homeless.
We’re told Melanie and Aaron met her, and they felt she was a good fit … so they brokered a deal where they’d offer her a free place to stay in exchange for keeping an eye on the place. She’d also do odd jobs around the property.
As we reported … it was this same woman who found Aaron dead in his bathtub over the weekend, and who called 911. She’s only been living there for 2-3 weeks.
No word on what’s going to happen to her now. There’s been a lot of activity at Aaron’s Lancaster home the past few days — so she may well be forced to move out after all this.
