“Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter,” the family told Access Hollywood in a statement Tuesday. "We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter.
“We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”
Leslie, a singer, married husband Mike in 2008, and gave birth to the pair's only child, daughter Alyssa Jane Ashton, on April 1, 2011.
Like her brothers, she embarked on a music career in the 1990s. Leslie, who played both the piano and clarinet, inked a deal with DreamWorks Records in 1999 on an album that would never be released.
