Carter was just 17 when she sent Roy thousands of text messages encouraging him to commit suicide, which he did via carbon monoxide poisoning in his pickup truck in a K-Mart parking lot in July 2014. His mother, Lynn Roy, filed a $4.2 million lawsuit against Carter, claiming that she inflicted “severe personal injuries, great conscious pain and suffering of body and mind and ultimately death," upon Roy.

"The defendant neither admits nor denies these allegations in this form," attorneys Francis Lynch III and Andrew Lynch wrote in Carter’s response filed in Norfolk, Mass Thursday. Read the documents here. Roy’s mother accused Carter of “gross negligence, and/or her willful, wanton and/or reckless conduct,” in her 18-year-old son’s death after she “encouraged Mr. Roy to kill himself,” in her original lawsuit obtained by Radar.

Carter’s sadistic text messages revealed during the trial included ones from the last day of his life on July 12, 2014. “You're so hesitant because you keep overthinking it and pushing it off,” she wrote to him. “You just need to do it Conrad. The more you push it off, the more it will eat at you.” The same day she continued, writing: “You're ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you’ll be free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.”

Carter’s attorneys wrote that she was not responsible for Roy’s death. "If, in fact, the defendant was negligent, the negligence of the plaintiff's decedent was of a greater degree than that of the defendant, whereby the plaintiff is barred from recovery," the documents obtained by Radar stated.

“Miss Carter knew that Mr. Roy had a history of attempted suicides and was being treated for mental health issues including severe depression,” the documents filed in Dedham Superior Court obtained by Radar state. “During the months and weeks prior to his death, Conrad H. Roy III exchanged communication with the Defendant, Michelle Carter, in which Ms. Carter encourage Mr. Roy to kill himself and chastised him for delaying the act.”
