Teen Allegedly Sent Hundreds Of Texts Convincing Depressed Friend To Kill Himself

Michelle-Carter

An 18-year-old Massachusetts girl is now charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly urging her friend to commit suicide.

In the summer of 2014, police say 18-year-old Conrad Roy committed suicide behind a K-Mart in his truck. KTTV says Roy died of carbon monoxide poisoning after the cab filled with fumes.

While authorities were conducting their investigation after the body was found, police found Roy’s cell phone and they began to comb through it. Much to their surprise, they say they discovered texts from 18-year-old Michelle Carter, (pictured above) Murray’s friend (although some news outlets report that they were a couple, the victim’s family claims they were just friends), who was allegedly urging him to go through with the suicide. This was reportedly even though he appeared to have wanted to back out on a number of occasions.

Alleged text sent from Michelle to Conrad.

Alleged text sent from Michelle to Conrad.

KTTV reports Carter even sent a text that said, “let me know when you’re gonna do it” and get back in” after Roy had gotten out of his truck. Family members have since spoke out saying Roy could be easily influenced because he was suffering from depression.

A representative from the Bristol County DA released a statement saying, “Instead of attempting to assist him or notify his family or school officials, Ms. Carter is alleged to have strongly influenced his decision to take his own life, encouraged him to commit suicide and guided him in his engagement of activities which led to his death.”

After Roy’s death, My Fox Boston says Carter took to social media to express her grief and even held a fundraiser in Roy’s honor.

As of right now, Carter was released on a $2,500 bond. She’s expected to appear again in court on April 17 for a pre-trial hearing.

If you or someone you know is experiencing any thoughts with suicide, please consider reaching out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

    I don’t understand how anyone could do something like this to another person. She sounds like a psychopath.

    • gizelle Smith

      Agree!

    • sherryl

      She sounds like the new breed of no conscious needed kids. Parenting is not giving kids tools to harm others with. Buy 800.00 cell pay bill and let society get attacked by your handy work. Suicide is a choice no one makes but the one who takes their own life. Pay attention to mental health of people and not their fashion save a life.

    “Get back in” woooooow.. Don’t let her convince you she didn’t know what she was doing

        No. Go away and stop posting this stupid shit all over. I hate these frickin people. Ugh. Go get an actual job that doesn’t just involve people joining so they can go around and do the same shit. All of these are stupid pyramid schemes and ur dumb for joining in the first place. You probably made more like $10 the last month and $9.37 this month.

    • gizelle Smith

      She’s Damn WELL EDUCATED!!! She knew what she was coercing, and even had the OPPORTUNITY to STOP it!!! But she wrote, and I quote, ” GET BACK IN THE TRUCK!” . HOW IGNORANT ARE YOU JESSICA BENEDETTO? OR ARE U BLAMING YOUR UNFOUNDED, UNEDUCATED COMMENT ON BEING A DUMBASS KID TOO?!?!

      • Megan Mobley Spence

        Why are you so mad? Obviously she’s saying that the girl knew exactly what she was doing. It’s clear she’s against the girl coercing her “friend” into suicide.

      • Sandra

        You COMPLETELY misunderstood what Jessica said lmfao…

      • Eating Broccoli

        Gizelle, I’m pretty darn sure Jessica was saying that Carter knew what she was doing, and not to defend Carter’s actions. She’s not defending Carter.

      • Jesyka

        Dude u r one messed up person. Jessica did not defend either one. His friend was messed up to say what she did, but she was only texting him… he could have backed out… I too suffer fro severe depression like Carter and have attempted suicide but I would have stayed out of the truck in his position. If he chose to go back in the truck the blame is mostly on him NOT her.

        • gizelle Smith

          I have suffered the worst life can throw at you. And if you say you know how it feels, you should know how much other people’s words can affect and impact your thoughts and actions when you’re in such a lonely, vulnerable state..

          • Terri L Fleming

            You people are sad. You are arguing amongst yourselves and there is a guy that had severe depression that obviously was following what a person that was obviously poison to him instead of turning off his phone or dialing 911 he decided to listen and do what she said. I have severe recurrent depression plus other mental problems, if a person that I consider a friend told me to commit suicide I would tell them to go to hell. I listen to my doctors, psychiatrist, counselor, lawyer and my case worker who is a social worker helping me. The reason you guys are arguing is stupid. So, someone read something wrong. Big fat whoop. Get over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh and by the way if you have a problem with me I am on facebook under the name Terri Fleming. If you don’t have facebook and want to contact me by e-mail, it is terrilyn2010@gmail.com bring it if you have a problem!!!!!!!!!!!!1

            I like you Terri. Awesome post. I agree. Almost every post on this has to do with things that don’t really matter. You are right she read it wrong and apologized. Everybody needs to move on. I commend you for writing this. I really do.

      • jessica

        Gizelle maybe you should reread jessicas comment. No where does it say shes taking sides with that girl. As a matter of fact its the exact opposite. Now whos ignorant? Next time make sure what you read is right before you decide to be ugly.

      • MindyB

        Why are you so angry at the world? Take it down a few. Geeeesshh.

            Hey Gizelle if you can’t stand the people on here why keep on posting on here. Don’t allow them to put you down there is no reason for that. Go to facebook there are all kinds of groups you can join and talk about things. Ignore these people. There is plenty to talk about on facebook.

          • Mary Freeman

            See?

            I didn’t ask you anything…. Don’t really care about your life either…. What I care about is you ragging on someone who wasn’t saying what you read….

    • gizelle Smith

      I apologize sincerely. I misread your post. I was so mad after reading and watching article, I guess I was seeing red, literally.. I reread, and TOTALLY AGREE with your stance on this tragedy. Please understand, I was just so furious, I got a lil blinded. Thank you.

      • Johari Malik

        You made quite the ass of yourself, didn’t you? You should think twice before attacking people on the internet, calling people names, and bragging about how you’re better than them. It’s good that you apologized, but good gracious! Even after people urged you to reread the comment that you completely misunderstood, you just kept going. People like you are a cancer to civilized discussion. I don’t mean that as an insult, just my analysis of the situation since you turned something that could have been a civilized exchange into a disgraceful bash-fest. So you’ve apologized to Jessica. That’s a great start. Where is the apology to the other people you said awful things to on this thread?

        • gizelle Smith

          I meant those. I feel VERY PASSIONATELY about this, and SORRY if you feel offended. I was reading, and if it felt unjust, I commented. Sorry, but when I post I don’t read backwards. And after I post, my thoughts have been said. I don’t look back for arguments with people who talk shit when they don’t know the facts.

        • Matthew Alan

          And your no different. Trolling after an apology.

      • Johnny Virgil

        My god, you’re a raging asshole.

    • Alex Mullins

      Of course she knew what she was doing why else would she send hundreds of messages

  • Jackie Hammer

    Friend? Must be using that term loosely

  • Jessica<3

    I don’t think they can get her for man slaughter because she didn’t actually help him but it is absolutely horrible that she was suppose to be his friend & instead of helping him when he needed it she pushed him to kill himself! Such a young life ended for no reason! But there should be consequences for her actions he was obviously having second thoughts if he got out & she told him to get back in!?

    • jill

      you don’t need to “help” physically to be charged with man slaughter just saying 🙂 in a way though to me it seemed like she DID help him do it but “emotionally” if you get what im saying

  • debi

    They better lock her up now. She’s a Jodi Arias in the making!! Narcissistic psycho!! Evil

    • Skull Crusher

      lock her up for what.

      • gizelle Smith

        IGNORANT. Skull crusher? U probably couldn’t crush the skull of a PEEP. I BET u still live with ur family you uneducated fool!

        • Skull Crusher

          your reply has depressed me so much that im going to kill myself. i hope you have fun in jail for triggering me and causing my death.

          • Christopher Lee Hartsock

            I’ve notified the authorities.

          • rella

            This bitch needs a life sentence!!how is she concerned after the fact when she could of easily talked him out of this..

      • Fran DaGaetano

        Are you saying this from a legal stand point? Like what do they have to lock her up on?

        • sherryl

          I agree, this is ridiculous to keep looking to the law for our private lives to be less private and more controlled by. We as adults should be taking responsibility for our own actions. She maybe cruel and have taken advantage of a person at a low point but a suicide is the taking of ones own life. Depression is very treatable and the family has to look at what it really was and not to blame another for guilt they may want to unload. Adults decide to die or to live and no one can make either choice for them.

        • ginny

          It says on the article that she is being charged with involuntary manslaughter, it’s not just her opinion.

      • Christopher Lee Hartsock

        Involuntary manslaughter. Pay attention.

        • gizelle Smith

          You called it Christopher!

        • Karl N Karissa Crofts

          Yep involuntary is all she could get, but it is a shame, and she is a down right cold hearted bitch

    • gizelle Smith

      Right on!

  • EmilyInTexas

    Fry the little bitch.

  • Jai Romaini

    What on earth was she thinking

    • gizelle Smith

      Selfishly is all I can come up with…

  • Hurel

    She sounds like she’s got something seriously wrong with her head! Who the hell does that? I have two words for that girl -sick bitch.

    • gizelle Smith

      Yup.

  • RC

    Dumb Bitch! SHE should a done HERSELF in since she’s so gunho on it instead of actually HELPING THIS INNOCENT VICTIM!! SHE COULD OF EASILY CONTACTED HIS FAMILY TEACHER SOMEBODY TO **HELP** HIM!! AS A PARENT IF SOME ASSHOLE TOLD MY KID THAT THERES NO PLACE ON EARTH THEY COULD HIDE FROM ME!!

  • cielodrive

    Cold hearted evil girl.

  • Angie D

    Get her now because she’ll probably “help” someone else die. Next tme she’ll do it herself.

  • Dee

    Maybe she didnt take him seriously. He could have been the boy who cried

    • Melissa Clancy Taylor

      seriously? If someone is claiming they’re going to commit suicide you should call the cops and have them do a welfare check, whether they’re serious or not. You don’t call their bluff or encourage them to do it

      • gizelle Smith

        This is the only sensible comment I have read yet!!! Thank you for having compassion, and a brain.
        : )

      • Dee

        Yea maybe thats what done the first 3-4 times its said. If a person keeps using that, im sorry but a person gets numb to it. Actually the best thing to do is not deal with that person anymore, so you wont be put in that postion

    • gizelle Smith

      Obviously she knew it was GO TIME when she convinced him in the texts I’VE SEEN, THAT SAID ” GET BACK IN THE TRUCK!” , when he tried to change his mind..!!!! U people REALLY need to know EXACTLY WTF you’re talking about when making these comments on another’s life lost!!!

      • Dee

        Actually none of us know what happened. Including yourself. This forum for people to make comments about articles people just read about. Its not for people with a counseling degree. Just everyday people.
        So maybe people like yourself should not, read what others have to say, if you wear your heart on your sleeves. Take the attitude else where.

      • Dee

        Did he not know the suicide hotline? Im sure he did. He made the final decision. Plus i think this is a open subject, people are sharing what they think happened etc. If your wearing your heart on your sleeves then move the hell around! Go some where else with the fucking attitude.

    • JewelEyed

      I’m sorry, but hundreds of text is different from a few texts that say “I’m tired of your shit, I don’t care what you do anymore.”

      • Dee

        Obviously they were texting back and forth. It could be in some sick sort of way she wanted him to put up or shut up. We will never know. I dont see how they can blame her completely for something that came down to him to make the final decision

      • Dee

        Yeah, you right. I think that maybe after he said that shit so much she wanted him too. Even so i dont feel its all on her. He made the final decision. Im sure he knew the number for the suicide hotline. He chose to call her

  • SLS

    Bahahahahah. OmG….comments are out control. Fry the bitch? Really? She may have been misguided in her attempt to help her friend. You people don’t know!!!!! Before you get your panties in a bunch, she was wrong for not helping differently, calling his parwnts, calling 911 whatever bit someone fry the bitch is not appropriate

    • JewelEyed

      Misguided? Right. So if I text a homicidal person telling him to kill his family, that’s possibly just misguided? Right. 😛

      • gizelle Smith

        Nicely put!!!

  • Shannon Ebarb

    Sad, not only did this girl ruin the lives of this young man’s family but the lives of her own family. Sad, sad, sad. She wasn’t much of a friend. If she was his friend I would hate to see what she would be an enemy.

    • gizelle Smith

      Right?!?!

  • QH

    What a b…..geez, why call her a friend? Enemy is more like it. Sociopath tendencies? Hmmm.

  • Guest

    I would like to see more of the texts before I form an opinion on this. “Get back in” just isn’t enough for me, that could mean anything

    • JewelEyed

      It says specifically that when he texted her to tell her he had gotten out of the truck where he was killing himself, she told him to get back in.

      • gizelle Smith

        This is what my whole damn point is!!!

  • Mathew J Bryan

    I would like to see more texts before I form an opinion.

    • mlmtmm

      I agree. From what I have read she should have called for help and is not a good person but he is the one that chose to commit suicide. I am sure at some point he would have succeeded without her “guidance”.

  • Aprl H

    I think if she wanted him dead, she would of took his life herself,and yes, there are them some few that cry wolf, when they don’t get their way, and how was she to know rather he really was killing himself,she wasn’t there,I am sorry for the family that won’t except the responsibility, that their child commited suicide ,she wasn’t there holding a gun in her hand making him do anything,she shouldn’t get no charges, If she gets charges the law and the system is messed up, I have heard people wanted others dead,but since they took their lives, should the other people get charges?

    • JewelEyed

      Oh please. She’s not stupid, she knew if she actually killed him with her own hands she’d get caught and go to jail. She thought she’d found a clever way to get away with causing someone’s death.

  • DooWockaDoo

    I don’t think we are getting all of the story here…

  • Jennifer Willey Parker

    Have ever of you ever had someone in your life constantly talk about wanting to kill themselves? Most who are going to actually do it don’t talk about it and the majority of one’s who do talk about it are narcissists looking for attention. Pre judging this girls actions without all the facts is irresponsible. Was what she did smart of course not, could she have handled it better yes, but if the family knew he was suffering from depression where were they in all this. There is obviously a lot more to this story so there is no way any of us have the right to judge.

    • jillybean

      People who study suicide say the exact opposite is true. Most people who commit suicide warned their loved ones in the days ahead. It is extremely rare for a person to kill himself without talking about it first.

      • Jennifer Willey Parker

        Do you have someone in your life that has attempted or actually succeeded in committing suicide. If you haven’t then commenting on this topic by anyone is irresponsible.

        • C Martin

          I’m pretty sure most normal people if we were aware that someone was backing out of killing themselves would say, no don’t back out get back in the truck and kill yourself. Thats the problem not that she didn’t stop him. She is obviously a sociopath who was enjoying the whole process because there can not be any explanation good enough to justify telling him to get back in the truck.

        • jillybean

          Yes, I had a beloved nephew who committed suicide. I also had a friend. I can understand a person coming to realize that they cannot help a suicidal friend. I can understand not being able to deal with the ups and downs and not knowing how to respond. I even understand somebody growing weary of the constant drama. What I can’t understand is egging somebody on.

  • Skull Crusher

    There is no case, what a joke.

    • gizelle Smith

      You are a joke.

    • hm7380

      He was an adult, who obviously had some issues, The fact he killed himself just means he followed through on something he’d given some serious thought to. Perhaps he had begged her to help him. Perhaps this was the only way she would agree to ‘help’. I fully believe people should be able to commit suicide without being pitied/demonized/hated/or anything else. Voluntary euthanasia is something the US has decided is wrong, no matter WHAT the circumstances. We don’t KNOW what the circumstances are, and therefore can’t make a judgement. I find it sad that people don’t have better options… options where they can go see a doctor, and if suicide is warranted, and made under a sound mind, the person can proceed in a facility where medical professionals are assisting them, and it can be painless. It’s too bad he wasn’t able to receive psychological help initially, if that would have actually HELPED, but I am fully supportive of voluntary euthanasia, after the person has been throughly assessed, and found to be of sound mind, and truly wants it. Particularly if they have some sort of terminal illness. No one should be forced to live if they don’t want to, especially if they’ve given it a great deal of thought, over a long period of time. Forcing people to ‘stick around’ because it might bother their relatives seems insanely cruel. If someone, after much thought, counseling, decides they want to end their life, they should be able to do so – safely, and comfortably.

      • ginny

        Euthanasia is actually legal in some states. I know Washington is one of them. It doesn’t give too much detail in this article but if you look this up and read other articles it gives you more details on the texts. Like he said to her he was scared and disn’t want to do it. He was worried because he was going to miss his family and all that stuff and she would say don’t worry about it and basically telling him he needs to kill himself. And after the fact she posted all this stuff online about how she can’t believe he killed himself, she misses him so much and she started a fund raiser for suicide awareness. She claims she was his girlfriend and basically turned this thing into a pity party for herself. Now if that’s not a total sociopath then I don’t know what is. She’s going to end up doing something like that again and next time it won’t be just through texts.

    • Aaron Birmingham

      The “case” is she knew of a crime being committed and did not notify the authorities bro. All “morality” aside, she had a responsibility, not in the Spiderman sense, which would have made her even worse by not helping. She is pretty pathetic and yeah, she is just going to be shunned and blasted online (which is basically “death” to an 18 year old anyways).

      • patricia

        This is crazy ….she actually is responsible… when you have severe depression and soneone is actually telling you to do something your gonna do it its probably not all that she said…. she probably said that noone cares about him…. she could of said anything to trigger is thinking…. if she wasnt talkibg to hi . And it was his own mind thinking it… than it would be all him… but no…she was involved and talked him into it…. when you have depression its very easily to convince someone…. and shes supposed to be his friend…. wtf kind of friend does this shit!!!!!!!!???????

        • patricia

          She doesnt need jail she needs help and get into a mental institution

          • JewelEyed

            Why? Because we refuse to believe that some people are just effed up and evil? Because we don’t want to believe that sane teen girls are capable of this sort of horror when we’ve seen time and time again it’s true? No. He needed help, she needs a jail cell.

        • Aaron Birmingham

          No friend at all Patricia. I am disgusted with the fact that people like this exist in this world. I suffer from depression but I also take it day by day, also I do not allow anyone in to become as close as she has in order to influence me. I am a loving, trusting guy that suffers from depression, but, I am also smart enough to know that my not living would not bring anything positive. I have my battles, but I also have overcome every one of them so far meaning (to me) that success is possible. I am looking at it solely from a “law” standpoint that if a jury releases such people as Casey Anthony, they will not hold her (unfortunately).

        • ginny

          Yea she said she was his girlfriend. And when he said he didn’t want to do it because he was going to miss his family she told him not to worry about that and def convinced him 100% to do it and afterwards went online and made comments about how sad it was and turned it into attention for herself. She is sick in the head and needs to be locked away before she does it again. And it’s not an if she does it again, it’s a when.

  • gizelle Smith

    I’m gonna “assist” her princess ass…
    ♡ R. I. P. Conrad Roy ♡

  • This is terrible, what she did, but this makes no sense to charge her and not charge kids who torment and bully a peer to commit suicide.

    • Dana Miller

      That could be an interesting precedent if she gets convicted. Personally, I think with friends like that, who needs enemies.

  • NorthLoop

    Wait let me get this straight……. there are still K-Marts?????

    • Jesyka

      Way to make all this peaceful… I smiled from it thanks NorthLoop

  • Daniel Diaz

    Eye for an eye. Hard to think up a scenario, but I could, and it should lead to death. Young teenage girl knows right from wrong. Over population, all that stuff.

    • gizelle Smith

      Right on!!!

  • Buxton2276

    She’ll plead down for something dumb and get probation, maybe community service. If I was the police, I would take a good hard look at the “fundraiser” money. Maybe there’s a little bit of theft or fraud there. She should do jail time, but she won’t.

    • Zadie Summer-Day

      There was a male nurse who encouraged people to commit suicide. I think he did it on some website and he went to prison.

      • Heather Battles Shaffer

        that guy finally went to prison? GOOD. he pretended to be a depressed woman and talked to this young girl on a depression website and urged her to kill herself.

      You are a completely inhumane idiot who needs help yourself. This young man was screaming for help and all she had to do was tell someone. She basically shoved him over the edge. I hope this haunts her for the rest of her days, everyday, and they have no pity on her at trial. She showed none and deserves none.

    What a despicable twisted cunt. I know exactly what was going through this guy’s head and when I have days where I want it all to end, all it would take would be for one person to even joke about me committing suicide and I’d honestly probably do it. Poor guy and what an awful “friend”. I wish the media would stop calling her that because she clearly wasn’t. RIP Roy.

      I was looking for the right words… You seem to have found them.

  • jackie

    She is a despicable excuse for a human being. You know what Michelle.. you’re going to be a mother one day.. and karma is a bitch

  • Big Dave

    I honestly don’t see how this girl is responsible for what happened here. We’re talking about text messages, not her physically being with him behind the K-Mart and killing him herself in an assisted suicide.
    Yes, she shouldn’t have sent him the texts, but there should only be so much power texts have. She could have very easily been thinking he was joking around and there was no way he was gonna kill himself. To me, this is no different than when you see messages in convos online and someone tells another person to kill themselves because there’s a disagreement in opinion.

      Right on, I’ve seen the effect’s of the online posts being threatening and hurtful. I’ve been attacked and seen attacks against others. I always heard if you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything, and I think everyone online ‘are beautiful’ regardless of punctuation or grammar, intelligence or mental stability,
      and, I thank everyone for they’re positive posts.

    • JewelEyed

      This is HUNDREDS of text messages from someone he knew well telling him and encouraging him to kill himself. That’s not the same as a few online messages from a complete stranger and you know it.

        EXACTLY WHAT I’VE BEEN SAYING TO THESE PEOPLE!!!!!

  • Georgia Federhofer

    She’s the devil in disguise!

    What’s this post regarding? I thought it was about this kid being “coerced ” into suicide, not about who is or isn’t illiterate or who went to college….This is a tragedy no matter what happened and how it happened.

  • Kiki Manhattan

    Morally she was 100% wrong, just not sure legally. Like a previous individual commented, if found guilty where does this put bullying? Very interested to see which way this goes.
    Personal opinion, horrible person no matter what her reasoning was in sending those txts. Whether it be tough love, crying wolf, or flat out thought he was kidding… If someone you care about is saying these things, you err on the side of caution.

  • Andrea

    yeah, I’m sure we all need a “friend” like her.. what the hell kind of friend is that… so damn sad for him, the family and friends who probably truly loved him… this girl needs to pay the price for not having a sympathetic heart to someone who was reaching out for help & instead bringing him lower than he already was… what a piece of shit for a friend!!

  • Holli Long

    S-O-C-I-O-P-A-T-H…look it up! She has no conscience! She could’ve helped him.Instead she chose to be an Attention Whore. Wonder how she’s gonna like the attention she gets in woman’s prison…fresh young meat ,HMMM

  • Holli Long

    All you people “arguing” like dumbasses! Your so fucking educated? You’d realize kindness,understanding and acceptance…that not everyone sees things ,the way you do & that’s their right! Reaching out to others and building them up is the mature action..Your perpetuating the same train of thought that Carter portrayed…wonder where she learned to be so narcissistic? ACTIONS TRUELY SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS..WHAT DO YOUR ACTIONS ..SAY ABOUT YOU?

  • Joe Marciana

    I thought I would feel shock at this story but I’m feeling resigned to the reality of it. This is what I’ve come to expect from this world and it’s inhabitants. Adults will do exactly the same. Action to the negative, or inaction.

  • Donna Kondas-Braemer

    Wow! And all she’ll get is manslaughter? My sympathies go out to HIS family & friends. This is such a horrible tragedy..

  • Jaime Jaim

    Very very sad. A boy commits suicide after encouragement from this disgusting low life, and all anyone can argue about is who needs to apologize to whom for rage fueled comments. Really? The report was released in rebuttal to a bullying situation that resulted in the loss of a young life, and so many of you are resorting the very behavior that the report was attempting to shed light on in the first place. The purpose of this was to share in hopes of preventing additional damage or possibly the loss of yet another life from bullying/depression/suicide. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

  • lori

    Sick girl thwre. What a friend..smsh. she had her phone in her hand ..why did she not call 911? Psychopath..she enjoyed the attention.

  • Zaklex

    Legalize suicide and this wouldn’t be such a problem, and before you criticize my stance…take a few minutes and think it through, from both a monetary sense, physical sense and societal point and tell me if it’s really worth the cost of all of the above to keep suicide illegal?

  • Shelly Aday

    I can’t help but think WOW..THIS IS SO
    PATHETIC the fact that this girl bullied this guy to the point of suicide. ..and the below comments are a bunch of people bullying each other as well…guess no lessened learned here

  • Morana Schwarz

    This young lady is trully sick and she should end her life in mental hospital. It is disturbing how young people are actually sick in their heads. I quite don’t understand why are they pleased if someone hurts himself or, in this case, kills himself. And like a cherry on a top she held a fundraiser and had to express her in social media. Are their brains washed out with likes and popularity?!

  • Denise Rae Groce

    WOW! Let’s see how this case is gong to turn out.

  • Arlene kowall

    How can she do such a horrible thing,and sleep at night,she belongs in jail ,its almost like she killed him,pure evil.may he rest in peace.

  • DJack Klingler III

    I wish I had her number so I could text her to kill herself too. LOL j/k because I have morals, ethics, and values!

  • Kinjal Chrysalis Myllane

    I was searching for the offensive comment and I must say not at all what I would construe as offensive. The behavior is suspect but that happens on an open comment forum. This story is a senseless tragedy starring a very twisted young woman. She is the epitome of evil to convince her friend to commit suicide then act like she cared for him by setting up donations.

  • cyndi

    This is extremely sad. What’s even more sad is she had the opportunity to save a life and she didn’t. Just because of that she has something really mentally wrong with her. I think she should be convicted and have to pay for letting this poor kid kill himself without alerting anyone who could intervene. If she is capable of this what else is she capable of? Do you want her on the streets with your children? I for one certainly do not!

  • Isn’t she just the shining example of a sadist…

  • David Dunnington

    Very Very Pathetic

  • Alex Mullins

    I believe everyone is different and we are not all the same if anybody could go back and change it I garentee they would including me. Some people go through these fases and most all people are different when they do so some people on here don’t need to say that they have went through the same thing because for one they sure haven’t. I think that and we all very well should. Thanks for reading…
