According to a newly released police report, Leslie Carter’s death was due to a drug overdose and she was under the influence of several drugs before her death. The report said three drugs were found near Carter – Olanzapine, used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Cyclobenzaprine, a muscle relaxant; and Alprazolam (Xanax) used to treat anxiety or panic disorders.
Carter’s stepmother, Ginger Carter, said Leslie had “a long history of mental illness and was on medication for her depression.”
The official cause of death will be determined after the Chautauqua County, New York coroner’s office gets the results of toxicology reports in four to six weeks. Carter’s family will ultimately decide whether or not to release the cause of Leslie Carter’s death.
