Leslie Carter Died From An Overdose: Report

Leslie Carter died of an apparent overdose after taking several prescription medications, ABC News reports.

The 25-year-old sister of Aaron and Nick Carter had “a long history of mental illness and was on medication for depression,” her stepmother, Ginger Carter, told authorities, according to an incident report.

Medication for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and anxiety and panic disorder were found near Leslie, who died on Tuesday in upstate New York.

According to the report, on the morning of Janury 30, Leslie fell in the shower. Ginger helped her lie down but late in the afternoon, she found Leslie was not breathing. Leslie‘s father, Robert, tried to perform CPR, then her stepmother called 911.

The official cause of death will be determined after New York’s Chautauqua County coroner’s office receives toxicology reports in about four to six weeks, ABC News adds.

    she probably didn’t even realize that she could overdose on all the meds – people do overdose sometimes from wanting to “catch up” on missed doses. Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, it’s just sad. My prayers are w her family.

    Very sad. So young with so so much promise, JUST NOT in the entertainment industry .
    Very sad, but yeha, I am a bit mad because the enteratianment industry is not a good place for everybody.
    If she were in another profession where she could feel and see herself resourceful and successful, maybe , better chance she would be here today.
    Such a young, pretty girl and with a husband and yr. old baby left behind.
    Poor stepmother , I hope she does not balme herself. That is so so hard for her.
    Poor people. All very sad.

    @csa: Is that how Heath Ledger and Amy Winehouse dies too? Face it, these people are scum crug addicts who use to much and then when they die their families jump in and try to paint them as saints. Both Carter brothers are pure garbage why the hell wouldn’t the sister be aswell?
