Probably many of you already heard the story on the news or the internet. For those who are not familiar with the story, here is a recap. In 2014, 18-year-old Conrad Roy was found dead by suicide in his grandfather's truck in a parking lot in Massachusetts. He filled the truck with poisonous carbon monoxide and waited for death. However, during this whole process, he was also texting his girlfriend, 17-year-old Michelle Carter.

Despite what everyone would do in such a situation, the young girl actually was trying to encourage him to commit suicide. Later, those text messages have been found. The young man kept telling that he didn't want to upset his parents and even sometimes he told her that he didn't want to die. Whenever he was hesitating, Carter was ordered to carry out and continue. For example, Roy called Carter and told him that he was out of the car and he wasn't sure about this decision. Carter told him to go back in immediately and not to overthink. After these text messages have been found, the young girl was taken to the court. In 2017, she was found legally guilty of involuntary manslaughter. She was facing up to 20 years of jail time but sentenced to 15 months of jail time when she was 20 years old. She was ordered to prison when she was 22 years old. Now Carter is at the Bristol County House of Correction adult facility, serving her sentence.

Now, HBO announced a new two-part documentary series called 'I Love You, Now Die' that goes deeply in that horrifying and sad story. The first part consists of the prosecution and the second part shows the defense. The documentary also reveals some information that didn't take much place on media such as Carter's mental illness. The series seemed trying to change the image of Michelle Carter. The producer of the documentary series said that it was hurtful to see this young woman going through all this tortured experience and he didn't think that the verdict was fair for her. He added that he didn't agree with the common opinion that her texts drove him to kill himself by overwhelming him and overcome his freewill.

The series is also mentioning the role of technology in this case and how technology complicates things in law. She didn't touch him, wasn't even there, however, she was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter because of her encouraging texts. There is not a certain way to decide whether this is a real crime or not. That is why this case remained controversial and became a topic for many debates.

What do you think about this case? Could texts can be a real weapon of crime or as long as she did not attempt to kill him is she innocent? To what degree, you think that she committed a crime? Will you watch the documentary series? Do you agree with the producer about how it was not fair for Michelle Carter or do you think she got what she deserved?

Some parts of their text messages:

4:28 Conrad: Really don't know what I'm waiting for but I have everything lined up.
4:28 Michelle: No you're not Conrad. Last night was it. You keep pushing it off and you say you'll do it but u never do. Its always gonna be that way if u don't take action.
4:29 Michelle: You're just making it harder on yourself by pushing it off, you just have to do it.
4:30 Michelle: Do u wanna do it now?
4:32 Conrad: Is it too late?
4:33 Conrad: Idk it's already light outside
4:33 Conrad: I'm gonna go back to sleep, love you I'll text you tomorrow
4:33 Michelle: No? It's probably the best time now because everyone's sleeping. Just go somewhere in your truck. And no one's really out right now because it's an awkward time.
4:34 Michelle: If u don't do it now you're never gonna do it.
4:34 Michelle: And u can say you'll do it tomorrow but you probably won't.
9:03 Michelle: Are you awake?
9:17 Conrad: Yes.
9:18 Michelle: Are you gonna do it today?
9:18 Conrad: Yesss.
9:19 Michelle: Like in day time?
9:19 Conrad: Should I?
9:22 Michelle: Yeah. It's less suspicious, you won't think about it as much, and you'll get it over with instead of waiting until the night.
9:23 Conrad: Yeah then I will. Like where?
9:23 Conrad: Like I could go in any enclosed area.
9:30 Michelle: Go in your truck and drive in a sparkling lot somewhere, to a park or something
9:37 Michelle: No I think night is more suspicious. A kid sitting in his car just turn on the radio and do it. It won't be suspicious, and it won't take long.
9:39 Conrad: Alright I'm taking holly for a walk.
9:39 Michelle: Okay.
9:45 Conrad: Idk why I'm like this.
9:48 Michelle: Sometimes things happen and we never have the answers why.
9:48 Conrad: Like why am I so hesitant lately.
9:49 Conrad: Like 2 weeks ago I was willing to try everything and now I'm worse really bad and I'm lol not Falling through. it's eating me inside.
9:52 Michelle: You're so hesitant 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.
9:53 Michelle: You're ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you bee free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.
9:59 Conrad: You're right.
10:00 Michelle: If you want it as bad as you say you do, its time to do it today.
10:02 Conrad: Yup no more waiting.
10:04 Michelle: Okay, I'm serious. Like you can't even wait til tonight. You have to do it when u get back from your walk.

How dare she encourage a young vulrenable man to kill himself. What was her motive ? why did she want him dead ? or was she trying in her own nieve way to help him do what he wanted to get done ?

I think she knew exactly what she was doing and I wouldn't be glorifying this case whatsoever.
