This just makes it all the more tragic.
Although the autopsy on Leslie Carter has yet to determine the cause of her sudden death, sources close to the family have revealed that the sister of Nick and Aaron Carter was battling an addiction to prescription medication, and had moved from Canada to Upstate New York in an attempt to beat it.
While the family members she was staying with had tried to make the environment as safe and sober for her as possible, they left her alone for an hour to run some errands, and when they returned, she was unconscious.
Heartbreaking. Especially to think she was trying to get herself help.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this impossibly difficult time.
May Leslie R.I.P.
