Leslie (Ashton) Carter Overdosed on Xanax, Bipolor Meds and Muscle Relaxants

Two letters: O.D.  I knew all that crap about the autopsy being inconclusive was bull.  A 25 year old just doesn’t die.

Yesterday the coroner Richard Mackowiak said the toxicology reports were in progress and the family were still in the process of deciding if they were going to make the results public or not.

Really?  It would be pretty hard to keep them a secret these days.

Well today the results were in and it appears that Leslie Carter died from a drug overdose.  Three drugs were found near Leslie when she died: Olanzapine, Cyclobenzaprine and Alprazolam.  These drugs are heavy duty!  Olanzapine is used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and Alprazolam is Xanax!!

It was known that she was struggling with a prescription drug dependency for some time.  She moved from Canada to be around family and rinds with the hopes it would keep her sober.


Leslie’s step mom Ginger Carter, said that she was depressed that morning and fell in the shower.  After she helped her lie down, she left and just checked on her periodically throughout the day.  During one of the checks she noticed that Leslie wasn’t breathing and called Leslie’s dad who performed CPR while they called 911.


It appears that Ginger Carter was also under the influence.  They describe her as having slurred speech, pinpoint pupils glassy eyes and kept falling asleep.

Ginger Carter told officials that she had taken “five to six pills for her depression,” possibly Xanax, and took more than her usual dose of four “because of Leslie passing away.”

Aaron Carter took over his sister’s facebook page stating,

“Hey this is aaron we are going to keep her facebook up..! i will add ppl so we keep leslie alive! we love les.”

Leslie leaves behind her husband Mike, and her 10 month old aughter Allysa Jane.
