'I Love You, Now Die': Did Teen Push BF to Kill Himself?

I Love You Now Die Review

I Love You Now Die Review

Lawyers for a MA woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter a year ago for pressuring her teenage boyfriend into killing himself are petitioning the Supreme Court to review the case, a report said.

The defense team for Michelle Carter, the now-infamous woman who was convicted of manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide over text, is trying to bring her case to the Supreme Court.

"Michelle Carter did not cause Conrad Roy's tragic death and should not be held criminally responsible for his suicide", said attorney Daniel Marx of Fick & Marx LLP. But the petition focused on the constitutional issues involved in Carter's case, as the Supreme Court primarily focuses on broader issues of constitutional law.

Juvenile court Judge Lawrence Moniz said Carter was "mindful" of the toxic environment building in Roy's pickup - yet encouraged the troubled teen to get back in the vehicle. Based on thousands of text messages between the pair in the weeks leading up to Roy's death, investigators found evidence Carter played a significant role in his suicide.

Al-Amin's family told local media the reported mental health issues are not a sufficient excuse for the teen's death. We must call this what it is - a hate crime - and demand a thorough investigation at the highest level .

The Massachusetts high court "imagined a range of conduct from coerced suicide to dignified death, but it offered no clear, meaningful, and constitutional way to determine where a particular case may fall on that spectrum".

Now that a petition was filed, it is up to the Supreme Court to decide if they will hear Carter's case.

Carter's case drew global attention in part because of the thousands of disturbing text messages between Carter and Roy, whose relationship existed nearly entirely over the phones. After his death, it was revealed through text message history that Carter, then 17, encouraged him to go through with the act. Directed by Erin Lee Carr of Mommy Dead and Dearest fame, the new two-part documentary features the families, friends and communities affected by 18-year-old Roy's suicide and the court case that ensued.
