How guilty was she? Can a text message conversation make you culpable of murder? Does Michelle Carter deserve time in jail for encouraging and arguably assisting in Conrad Roy's suicide?


In 2014, 18-year old Conrad Roy III was found deceased inside of his truck from carbon monoxide poisoning. Although on the outside this seemed to be a clinically depressed young man who died by suicide of his own volition, the text messages on his phone seemed to tell a very different story. Join Lisa, Matt, and special guest Hannah Jo as we take a deep dive into those text messages found on Conrad's phone and discuss if his death by suicide was really the result of something much more sinister-and of course, punishable by law.
