It’s the shocking true crime documentary which has divided opinion all over the world, but what’s the real story behind I Love You, Now Die?
In 2014, 18-year-old Conrad Roy tragically took his own life in a Massachusetts car park - which his mother Lynn initially tried to accept as a result of his ongoing battle with depression. But that wasn’t the whole story. After logging onto Conrad’s phone, police found hundreds of messages from his then 17-year-old girlfriend Michelle Carter, which seemed to show she had coerced him into taking his own life. Messages like “Do it, babe” and “You just need to do it”, ultimately led to Michelle being sent to prison on involuntary manslaughter charges.
But with huge questions raised over Michelle’s mental health, was she right to go to prison? And can someone else ever be to blame when another person takes their own life?
Conrad’s mother Lynn believes justice was rightly served, and joins us live from her home in Massachusetts to talk about the case which has shocked the world.
