New details have emerged in the death of Leslie Carter, the 25-year-old sister of Nick and Aaron Carter. The police report indicates that she was under the influence of several prescription drugs and apparently suffered an overdose, according to ABC News.

The report lists three specific drugs found near her: Olanzapine, Cyclobenzaprine and Alprazolam. Olanzapine is used to treat symptoms of bipolar disorder, while the two others are a muscle relaxant and anti-anxiety meds.

Her stepmother Ginger Carter told police that Leslie had “a long history of mental illness and was on medication for her depression,” the report states. 

Ginger also detailed Leslie’s final hours, saying she’d seemed depressed. The morning of her death, she had fallen in the show, so her step-mom says she helped her into bed. After several checkups, she says later that afternoon she found Leslie wasn’t breathing and called 911.  Her husband tried to perform CPR. 

The police report notes that Ginger admitted she had also taken some pills. “Ginger had slurred speech, pin point pupils, glassy eyes and kept falling asleep.” She said she’d taken “five to six pills for her depression,” possibly Xanax, and took more than her usual dose of four “because of Leslie passing away.”

A toxicology report is currently underway to determine the official cause of death. The family is currently preparing for Leslie’s funeral.
