We're saddened to report that the Carter family will have to wait a bit longer to get closure.
Yesterday, we were heartbroken to learn that Nick and Aaron Carter's sister Leslie Carter passed away at the age of 25.
Then earlier today, we heard that Leslie has been battling an addiction to prescription medication, and that she had moved to Upstate New York in an effort to beat it.
Now, we've learned the upsetting news that Leslie's autopsy was inconclusive, and they'll have to perform a toxicology report due to the fact that there were no visible signs of trauma.
Here's what Coroner Richard Mackowiak had to say about it:

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.

Leslie Carter (middle of picture above), sister of Nick Carter and Aaron Carter died Tuesday in upstate New York at the age of 25.
She was an aspiring singer and even had a single Like Wow! on the Shrek soundtrack.
No details on the cause of death, but the family did release this statement:
"Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time."
She leaves behind her four siblings as well as her husband, Mike and her nearly one-year old daughter, Alyssa Jane.
So, so sad.
