Leslie Carter's Autopsy Complete & Cause Of Death Still 'Unknown', Says Coroner's Office

Leslie Carter Death

HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Chautauqua County Coroner’s Office in upstate New York on Feb. 1 and they told us her body has been released to a local funeral home. An insider also tells us that Leslie was visiting her father when she died. Read on to find out all the latest details.

Leslie Carter was found dead on Jan. 31 and friends close to the family tell HollywoodLife.com that they are ‘shocked’ by her untimely passing. The Coroner’s Office tells us that it will take four to six weeks until the toxicology report is complete and that’s when we’ll have some answers as to her cause of death.

The younger sister of the Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter was found dead in upstate New York and a source tells us she was visiting her dad. Leslie resided in Canada, which is about an hour and a half away from Chautauqua County, New York, where her dad lived.

The county is so small that they don’t have a medical examiner’s office, so the body was sent to the Erie County Medical Examiner’s Office in upstate New York for the autopsy. Her body has been released to the family so that they can organize her funeral arrangements.

We told you that Leslie leaves behind her 10-month-old daughter Alyssa and her husband of three years, Mike Ashton.

Alyssa’s Twitter handle was titled MomAshton and her about me says: “I’m Leslie, I love being a new mom to our wonderful baby girl Alyssa Ashton, and I have a wonderful husband who takes care of his girls. I couldn’t ask for more.”

Nick says in a statement that he’s thankful to those “who have shared their wishes and prayers during this tragic time,” and that he plans to continue with his tour in NYC “as promised.” “Performing is cathartic to me,” he said, “and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform.”

Leslie appeared alongside her family on the short-lived E! reality series House of Carters, which ran for eight episodes in late 2006.

What the hell can you say except “please pray” for strength for mike to continue to raise Alyssa. I think she will be the one to get him through the years. I also pray for all families and friends affected. May God rest Leslies soul so she may look over her husband and baby girl.
