A wrongful death lawsuit has been dismissed against Michelle Carter, the young woman who encouraged her boyfriend, Conrad H. Roy III, to kill himself in a series of texts back in 2014, In Touch can confirm.

It was a “stipulation of dismissal with prejudice and without cost,” which means it was an agreement of parties,” the Clerk of Court confirmed to RadarOnline on April 10. Now, the case can’t be brought back to court. As you may recall, Carter previously convinced her boyfriend that killing himself was the right decision to make. The 18-year-old poisoned himself by inhaling carbon monoxide in his pickup truck parked outside of a Kmart in Fairhaven, Massachusetts.

When he had second thoughts about going through with it, Carter told him to “get back in” the pickup, prosecutors revealed. Days later, she reportedly expressed her regrets in following messages, “I read this thing online about trying to agree with the person and that would make them change their mind because they see how stupid they’re being,” Carter wrote.

“But it didn’t work for you and I did it for too long,” she continued. “You probably thought I was OK with it and you talked about being in heaven and being my angel and at the time I went along with it, because I knew you weren’t gonna do anything. But you f–king did it and I’m so sorry I didn’t save you.”

Roy’s mother, Lynn Roy, filed a $4.2 million wrongful death lawsuit against Carter in August 2017 for her role in the 2014 suicide. Carter was convicted in 2017, but remained free while her lawyers appealed her conviction. Her appeal was denied in February, thus Carter began serving a 15 month sentence at the Bristol County House of Correction for involuntary manslaughter.
