'House of Carters' Star

Rx Drugs Suspected in Death

2/1/2012 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Leslie Carter and the Carter family
Leslie Carter
was battling an addiction to prescription medication in the days before her death ... and family members believe she died as a result of an overdose.

Sources close to the "House of Carters" reality star tell TMZ ... the 25-year-old sister of Nick Carter had recently moved from Canada to Upstate New York to live with family members while she attempted to kick her addiction.

We're told family members had attempted to rid the home of any prescription medication -- including Xanax --  and were hopeful Leslie was on the road to recovery.

Sources say family members believed Leslie would be OK to stay alone in the home for roughly an hour yesterday while they ran errands ... but when they returned, Leslie was unconscious.

Officials were called to the scene ... but Leslie could not be saved.

We're told Leslie's 1-year-old daughter was not at home with Carter at the time of her death.

Truly sad that such a beautiful young woman has lost her life, and her poor little daughter is now left motherless. It's heartbreaking. RIP Leslie.

I bet half the people who are saying don't do drugs are fat slobs who will die of a heart attack. Food can be just as dangerous as Xanax, if you're addicted to it.

Overdoses and suicides are natures way of weeding out the stupid and worthless. Thin the herd baby, thin the herd!!!!!

They say she died of an overdose, but they had taken ALL of the prescription pills out of the home and I know from experience with my brother that she could of very well died from rapid withdrawls from Xanax, which include SEIZURES. They said they left her alone for an hour and if she was quitting the Xanax "cold turkey" then she very well could've passed away from complications with the withdrawls. Just saying.....

I was one of Leslies friends.. I lived just down the street from her. Leslie was not moving back to the US.. She was just there visiting her father like she did quite often. She loved Alyssa and Mike. I cant believe she is gone! RIP
