In court, Carter’s anxiety, depression, and bouts with anorexia were discussed at length. It was believed that Carter wanted attention, as she didn’t have many friends in school, which led her to try to get attention as the girlfriend of someone who had died. 

It was also reported that Carter had an obsession with the Fox show, Glee, and its star Lea Michele. Art imitated life for Lea when her on- and off-screen boyfriend, Cory Monteith (who played Finn Hudson on the show) died in 2013.
