Michelle Carteris serving time behind bars after a judge found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy, and RadarOnline.com has a gallery of the shocking crime scene photos and the horrific text messages that sent her to prison.
A 17-year-old when her boyfriend killed himself by carbon monoxide poisoning in a Massachusetts K-Mart parking lot, Carter sent over 20,000 text messages, many of which encouraged him to kill himself, prosecutors revealed.
Carter filed an appeal to the Massachusetts Supreme Court, which was denied in February.
According to documents obtained by Radar, the court judges said: “The evidence against the defendant proved that, by her wanton or reckless conduct, she caused the victim's death by suicide. Her conviction of involuntary manslaughter as a youthful offender is not legally or constitutionally infirm. The judgment is therefore affirmed.”
Now the focus of a new HBO documentary titled I Love You, Now Die, the evidence Radar obtained reveal the depths of depravity in the case.

“You're so hesistant sic because you keep overthinking it and pushing it off. You just need to do it Conrad. The more you push it off, the more it will eat at you,” Carter texted to Roy on July 12, 2014 as he wavered in his decision to kill himself.
Prosecutors presented photographic evidence of Roy’s lifeless body in the truck after he was found by authorities. (Radar chose not to publish the graphic images.)
On July 12, Carter sent Roy another text: “You're ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you be free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.”
Roy’s driver license was found in the truck after his death.
“I think he just killed himself,” Carter wrote in a text message to her friend Samantha Boardman when she stopped hearing back from Roy.
“Sam he just called me and there was a loud noise like a motor and I heard moaning like someone was in pain and he wouldn’t answer when I said his name I stayed on the phone for like 20 mins that’s all I heard,” Carter wrote to her friend on the night of Roy’s death.
Carter and Roy’s 20,000 text messages gave a disturbing history of his decision to end his life.
“I could just do it in my driveway,” he wrote to her on July 9, three days before his death. “But slight chance I’m found.” She responded: “Don’t do it in your driveway? You’ll easily be found.”
Carter told Roy his death would be accepted by his family on July 11. “I think your parents know you’re in a really bad place. I’m not saying they want you to do it, but I honestly feel like they can except sic it," she said. "I’m not saying they want you to do it, they’ve tried helping, everyone’s tried. But there’s a point that comes where there isn’t anything anyone can do to save you, not even yourself, and you’ve hit that point and I think your parents know you’ve hit that point. You said your mom saw the suicide thing on your computer and she didn’t say anything. I think she knows it’s on your mind, and she’s prepared for it."
“You’re so hesistant sic because you keep overthinking it and pushing it off. You just need to do it Conrad. The more you push it off the more it will eat at you,” Carter wrote on July 12 at 9:52 am.
A minute later at 9:53 am on July 12 she wrote: “You’re ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you be free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.”
At 5:14 pm on July 12 Roy wrote to Carter, saying: “Idk I’m stressin."
Carter wrote back to Roy at 5:15 pm, “You’re fine, it’s gonna be okay. You just gotta do it babe, you can’t think about it.”
In their ominous last messages to each other, Roy hesitated. “I know I’m overthinking, I’ve been overthinking for a while now,” he wrote at 6:09 pm.
Carter responded to Roy at 6:11 PM, writing: “I know, you just have to do it like you said,” and then wrote again at 6:19 PM, asking: “Are you gonna do it now.”
Carter, who was only 17 at the time of Roy’s death, began her two and a half year sentence in February 2019, with 15 months to be served and the balance to be spent on probation.
