Leslie Carter: Details Surrounding Her Untimely Death

Posted Thursday February 2, 2012 8:42 AM GMT

It was a tragic loss when Leslie Carter passed away unexpectedly yesterday (February 1), and her family and friends are pretty sure her untimely demise was related to prescription drugs.

According to an inside source, the 25-year-old “House of Carters” starlet was living with family members in hopes of kicking her addiction to pills, including Xanax.

And though family members thought she’d be okay to be alone for an hour while they ran errands, when they returned she was already unresponsive.

Leslie’s brother Aaron Carter released a statement: "I am with my family spending much needed time together as we deal with this private matter. I look forward to returning to my Fantasticks family and performing the role of 'Matt' for all my amazing fans. Again, I request privacy for my family and no further statements will be made at this time. "
