Newly released text messages appear to detail how a Massachusetts teen encouraged her online boyfriend to kill himself.

"Everyone will be sad for a while but they will get over it and move on," 18-year-old Michelle Carter texted boyfriend Conrad Roy III in reference to him dying by suicide.

The messages, released Friday by the Bristol County District Attorney's Office and obtained by The Huffington Post appear to show Carter encouraging her then-boyfriend to kill himself.

Roy, 18, was found dead July 13, 2014, inside his truck at a parking lot, where he used a combustion engine to induce carbon monoxide poisoning. Carter has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the teen's death.

'You Have To Just Do It'

The texts appear to show that Carter not only encouraged Roy to take his life, but even helped him figure out the best methods to do so.

"You have to just do it," she texted him, according to the documents. "You have everything you need. There is no way you can fail. Tonight is the night. It's now or never."

When Roy expressed hesitancy at going through with his plan, Carter sent him text messages expressing her frustration.

"You always say you're gonna do it, but you never do," she texted. "I just want to make sure tonight is the real thing."

People let the internet run their lives. It's hard to believe you'd let someone hundreds of miles away bully you online, much less get you to commit suicide, but that's exactly what kids are doing. They feel so pressured to fit in, they'll go to any lengths. Appearance is everything to some and they just don't seem to have the sense to know when to tell someone to go piss up a rope.
I feel sorry for the young man, I hope the little bitch rots in jail.
She knew exactly what she was doing. Can you imagine her chances of getting a boyfriend now? What am I saying? - That just probably made her popular. This is just...."pathetic attention seeking manipulative little bitch" doesn't even begin to cover it.



"It's something [cops] have to do with suicides and homicides and [Roy's mother] said they have to go through his phone and see if anyone encouraged him to do it on text and stuff," she told her friend. "[If] they read my messages with him I'm done. His family will hate me and I can go to jail."

In a September text message to her friend, Carter admitted knowing about Roy's suicide and saying she participated in helping because "I couldn't have him live the way he was living anymore."

I understand that 'love' can be a powerful thing, but WHAT THE HELL was he thinking! Like what made this a good idea?! Shame she hadn't bought into the Romeo and Juliet plan! Two Lunatics with one stone!

Wow, when I simply sent my online friend who I hadn't talked to in over a year, a message, simply saying no more than "goodbye", he tracked down my parents number and even from states away saved my life from suicide. He managed to do it in under 30 minutes too. Which means he jumped on it right away, as he needed to go through another friend to do it, and he and that friend had been avoiding each other and no longer friends for years.

While this bitch who is supposed to love and be in a relationship with this guy, instead encourages him to not only do it, but not let anyone else know he's hurting too.

I swear, am glad I had the friend I did, and not someone like this sociopath.

And here we have some more slippery slope. While what this girl said is horrible, it shouldn't be a chargeable offense(IMO).

I've told plenty of people to FOAD(F### off and die), go eat a bullet, jump off the nearest bridge, etc. Should I be charged if they actually did it?

Again, this is a horrible tragedy and the young lady goading him on is a ------ (Can't even type what I want to call her). But the kid took his own life and is responsible for his actions.

Sad story all around.

Oh please what she did is far more sinister and coordinated than that. She didn't just say something spur of the moment, she manipulated, and encouraged, and did everything she could to convince him to go through with it and not seek help.

The only slippery slope is you thinking it compares to, "Go # off and die asshole!"

I don't believe she should be found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, as that is the unintentional killing of another human. This was intentional, and she didn't kill him. I do think she should be severely punished somehow, but I'm not sure it should be a legal thing. That mindset just adds to the idea that we are victims of other people's thoughts and desires, and I don't believe that. Each person is responsible for their actions.

HE did this. Regardless what she said to him, HE chose to do what he did. He committed suicide.

I hope the girl is seriously punished by living a life of remorse and shame, realizing what a cruel and evil action she took. All she had to do to "get rid of him" would be to stop talking to him online.

Were you on the phone urging them to pull the trigger or take that final step off the edge? Helping them plan their end? Calling them cowards for not going through with it? There's a huge difference in saying something in the heat of the moment, versus actively encouraging them to do it.

She sent this to her pal.

"It's something [cops] have to do with suicides and homicides and [Roy's mother] said they have to go through his phone and see if anyone encouraged him to do it on text and stuff," she told her friend. "[If] they read my messages with him I'm done. His family will hate me and I can go to jail."


Guilty.
What a horrid person it takes to do this.

I know I must be getting old and the ground beneath my feet has shifted but I don't get it.

I don't care how old someone might be, this is seriously 'effed' up and any good person should see that, no matter their age. That young woman needs to pay for what she did. It's not like she was just indifferent to the suicide, she urged hi to complete the task when he started to 'chicken out'.
Screw her.
And you are correct in using the 'B' word to describe her.

She's clearly a sociopath who feels no remorse. She will not live a life feeling any of those things.

I think that this is a sad testament to our time and the youth who will one day be in charge. The fact that they show so little regard for human life is appalling and monstrous at the same time.

This girl, saw that the person who was her "friend" needed help. She could have done something to assist him, even finding and calling his parents or even gotten in touch with the authorities there in his home town and had them intervene on his behalf. But did she do that, no she rather turned around and encouraged him to end his life, to take the one precious thing of all, his very being away from the earth. The boy had problems, yes, but to end it, that was neither the correct or right.

The problem is that this girl only did those actions for her own selfish reasons, and then lied about it to the authorities when questioned. Did she not think that they would have had the phone records, including the text messages on his end that was sent and received during that time frame or that should could have been charged with being part of his death?

I think that if anything this is a strong message to all, that perhaps in a social context we are not so advanced and need to consider our actions and words, and maybe just maybe, re think on how we view and deal with children.

I agree with you and can't stand this story.

I can just see how this could be used in other scenarios.

Reminds me of the girl who egged her boyfriend into suicide and then started a GoFundMe about "her tragedy" after the fact.


Is this the same case, or are there 2 sociopaths like that in real life?

Your right. Just in our little small town, I have been shocked recently by the amount of unfeeling, uncaring, little zombies we have running around, who have no concept of consequences.

Who couldn't have see this coming?



She most certainly needs some type of punishment.

Butcherguy I am just stumped for an apparent cultural shift of a girl you met once in person is now your girlfriend the love of literally your life ONLINE!!..excuse me while I rant for a while..all this texting and selfies, there were occasion were young folks and folks not so young would come to my place in a group and everyone at the table is busy ignoring everyone else and having a conversation with folks nowhere present,I walk over to their table and rudely interrupt them and asked them why are they out together that this is a bar with friends who should be enjoying each other's company most of the time they felt a little ashamed but others tried to reason that if they cut their phone off they might missed something important smh..end rant.

It would seem that way from reading one article, but we don't know the details of the story AND we're not professionals. To determine that she's a sociopath, she would need to be evaluated by a professional. In that case, perhaps there is help for her. If she's mentally ill, she needs help, not incarceration.

She WILL lose all her friends.
Her name will forever be tarnished with this event.
Her life will NOT be very pleasant. People HATE her.

She WILL suffer for doing this.

This winner did or tried to do the exact same thing.
