Massachusetts high school student Michelle Carter has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. Police say the 18-year-old urged a friend to commit suicide, even when he had doubts.
Conrad Roy III, 18, died of carbon monoxide poisoning after sitting in an idling truck in July of 2014. Conrad and Carter exchanged text messages, according to police, right up until the time he died.
According to the police report obtained by The Sun Chronicle: “Not only did Conrad tell Carter in several of his texts prior to his death that he was scared and didn’t want to leave his family, she continued to encourage him to take his own life, and when he actually started to carry out the act, he got scared again and exited his truck, but instead of telling him to stay out of the truck … Carter told him to ‘get back in.’”
