Ginger Carter did not specify the exact time she found Ashton in the shower or how much time the woman spent inside the bedroom. She said her husband and Ashton's father, Robert, came home soon around 4:16 p.m. and that the woman was 'not breathing or responding.' Robert Carter then tried to perform CPR on her.
The police report states that Ginger Carter called 911 at 4:10 p.m. to report that Ashton was 'asleep on her bed and not breathing.' Paramedics arrived and transported her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 4:59 p.m.
