Leslie Carter, the sister of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and singer and actor Aaron Carter, has passed away. She was only 25 years of age.
It is now being reported that many close to the situation think that prescription drugs led to an overdose for the young woman. She was found dead in upstate New York yesterday and medics called to help were not able to bring her back.
Leslie Carter is said to have been dealing with prescription drug addiction for a while now. She is said to have moved from Canada to New York so she could have the assistance of her family in getting over her addiction.
She was left alone for no more than an hour while family members ran errands. When they returned she was already passed out.
The house is said to have been empty of pills, but it is suspected that Leslie was able to secure drugs without the knowledge of her family.
Her brother Nick Carter has dedicated the remainder of his tour to his sister. Aaron Carter has left his off-Broadway production temporarily to be with his family during this time, but will return to the stage soon.
Toxicology and autopsy reports are currently not in.
Leslie Carter leaves behind a husband and a young daughter.
