This is the first time Carter has been seen in two years. She was released from jail for good behavior in 2020, only serving 11 months of her 15-month sentence for the 2014 manslaughter of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III.
On July 13, 2014, Conrad Roy III was found dead in his truck outside a superstore in Massachusetts after he had attached a hose from a generator and filled his truck up with carbon monoxide.
Roy reportedly had a brief change of heart as he had poisoned himself and even got out of the vehicle. Phone records, shown in Carter’s trial sow that she called her boyfriend and told him to get back inside the truck.
At the time, the 18-year-old had been battling anxiety and depression, and Carter, who was 17 years old, encouraged him to end his life through a series of texts that were discovered during the investigation.
Outside of her case, little information is known about her personal life.
In February 2015, Carter was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection to her boyfriend’s death.
During the investigation, authorities found messages on Conrad’s phone from Carter which read, “You keep pushing it off and say you’ll do it but you never do. It’s always gonna be that way if you don’t take action,” and “You just need to do it.”

Other texts sent from Carter show that he had even suggested Roy different ways to end his life: “Why don’t you just drink bleach? Hang yourself…jump over a building, stab yourself, idk.”
When Roy hesitated, Carter texted, “You better not be bulls******* me and just pretending. Tonight is the night, it’s now or never,” read court documents.
Carter never called police or Roy’s parents as he died. She later texted his mother, Lynn St Denis, to give her condolences but did not tell her that she had prior knowledge of the teen’s plans to end his life.
Prosecutors said that Carter had told a friend that she could have stopped Roy in the moments before his death.
“His death is my fault. Like, honestly I could have stopped it.” she wrote.
“I was on the phone with him and he got out of the car because [it] was working and he got scared and I f***ing told him to get back in…because I knew that he would do it all over again the next day and i could’ve have him live the way he was living anymore.
“Like, I should have did more and it’s all my fault because I could have stopped him but I f***ing didn’t. And all I had to say was I love you and don’t do this one more time and he’d still be here.”
She was found guilty during her trial and sentenced to two and a half years in prison but her sentence was later reduced to 15 months.
Michelle’s parents, David and Gail Carter, have spoken in court and publicly about their daughter since the event.
“Our hearts have and remain broken for the Roy family,” the parents said at the time.
“For everyone that does not know our daughter, she is not the villain the media is portraying her to be. She is a quiet, kind, and sympathetic young girl. She tried immensely to help Mr. Roy in his battle with depression. We know that once all of the facts are released, our daughter will be found innocent.”
Cosmopolitan reported that once she was found guilty her father pleaded for her innocence.
“I pray to God you will take into consideration that Michelle was a troubled, vulnerable teenager in an extremely difficult situation and made a tragic mistake. I am 100 percent sure she was only trying to do what in her mind was right for Conrad.”
Carter’s story is the subject of multiple documentaries including the 2019 HBO film, “I Love You, Now Die.”
In 2021, her story was told again in Investigation Discovery’s “Michelle Carter: Love, Texts & Death,” which is available to stream on Discovery+.
