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.
