Karen Carpenter

Here you will find a wealth of information on Karen's passing- news articles, autopsy report, death certificate,her funeral, as well as the Carpenter family crypt and more.

After much trawling of the internet, I've come to the conclusion that there is not enough information out there on Karen Carpenter's death. There are some things here and there, but not all in the one place.

I have put together this section of KarenCarpenter.com for informative purposes; for those fans who would like to find out more, or to satisfy their curiosity. If you have more photos or articles or information you would like to contribute to this page, please email:  

I have tried to make this as factual as possible. I have done my best to reseach the accuracy of everthing I've written here, however if you find any errors or omissions, please email me at the above address so it can be corrected ASAP. All help is very welcome.

We all love and appreciate Karen and the legacy she has left us through the music of The Carpenters.
