Teen Charged With Manslaughter After Police Say She Encouraged Friend’s Suicide

0

Michelle Carter, 18, is facing involuntary manslaughter charges after investigators say she encouraged 18-year-old Conrad Roy to commit suicide last year.

Michelle-ConradRoy was found dead inside his truck behind a K-Mart last year. The teen had decided to kill himself and did so via carbon monoxide poisoning. After a lengthy investigation, it was revealed that Carter had “strongly influenced” Roy to kill himself.

After his body was found, police searched the teen’s cell phone and found thousands of text messages between him and Carter in the days leading to his death. The text messages continued up until the moments before he died.

“It is alleged that Ms. Carter had firsthand knowledge of Roy’s suicidal thoughts,” the district attorney’s office said. “Instead of attempting to assist him or notify his family or school officials, Ms. Carter is alleged to have strongly influenced his decision to take his own life, encouraged him to commit suicide and guided him in his engagement of activities which led to his death.”

And by encouraging Roy, they mean she basically instructed him to. Fairhaven police Detective Scott Gordon said in a police report:

“Not only did Conrad tell Carter in several of his texts prior to his death that he was scared and didn’t want to leave his family, she continued to encourage him to take his own life, and when he actually started to carry out the act, he got scared again and exited his truck, but instead of telling him to stay out of the truck … Carter told him to ‘get back in.’”

Carter was indicted on February 5 as a youthful offender, which means she will be tried in juvenile court, but her trial will be open to the public. Her bail has been set at $2,500 and she’s been ordered to stay offline unless it is for school work. Carter is scheduled to appear in New Bedford Juvenile Court for a pretrial hearing on April 17.

After Roy’s death, Carter posted messages on Facebook and Twitter expressing how much she loved and missed her friend. She also organized a softball tournament called “Homers for Conrad” to raise money for mental health awareness in honor of Roy. She also posted several messages about suicide prevention.

dmitry1A married Russian TV presenter/actor Dmitry Nikolaev, 30, from Moscow has lost  his  testicles after he met a mystery blonde stranger at a pub. After exchanging pleasantries and eating at a restaurant, They returned to his car where he kissed her – passed out and woke up without his testicles. When he woke up, he felt an acute pain below the waist and noticed blood on his pants. It was only when he arrived at hospital that doctors told him he’d been drugged and his testicles were removed by someone who was an expert in castration.

Russian police believe Dmitry was targeted by a criminal gang selling organs on the black market. He added: “I thought it was just a cut but doctors told me my testicles had been removed.” The skin was originally cauterized and the operation was done in a skillful way, so surgeons believe the culprit may have been a doctor or even a vet. Police believe his beer was spiked with an unknown drug.

Dmitry now working as a children’s animator, was too embarrassed at first to explain what had happened to his wife, but later did. They are now looking for his testicles. He warns men to avoid picking up unknown women and getting intimate.

CRUEL parents who kept their daughter locked up in a ramshackle old house for six years are being investigated by police.

452717-c71387c6-bc84-11e4-a005-b478f5906d65Zhang Qi, 24, was forced into the filthy, dilapidated building after her parents made her dump her boyfriend in 2009 because they didn’t approve of him.

But despite being told the relationship was over, Zhang tried several times to run away before her parents told everybody that she was mentally ill, and locked up for her own protection in the remote property in the village of Jingang in central China’s Hubei province.

“Her parents are powerful people here and everyone was told not to interfere,” villager Chow Jen said.

“Everyone knew about the girl in the house.”

452797-cb965bc0-bc84-11e4-a005-b478f5906d65“I moved away and only come back to visit occasionally so I don’t care about their threats, and that’s why I was happy to expose these pictures online after the local authorities refused to do anything.”

He said they had claimed she was mentally unstable and locking her up was for her own good.

Chow said: “Every time I came back for Chinese New Year I went to visit her secretly.

“On my latest visit though I saw her lying on a pile of straw with a couple of blankets and some food around her and I just decided enough was enough.

“Whether what they say about her having mental problems is true or not, she is being treated like an animal here and I’m sick of it so I contacted the police, and then posted the images online.”

So far neither police or officials have made any comment on the case.

Amanda-HancockStephen Williams Jr., 26, and Amanda Hancock, 21, have been charged with starving their 7-week-old son to death while Hancock was busy self-lactating online for paying customers.

Last month, and ambulance was called to the couple’s home to treat an infant who’d stopped breathing. Data Hancock would die later, despite best efforts to revive him. The couple was arrested on murder charges on Tuesday after an autopsy revealed the infant had starved to death.

According to the charging documents, the couple showed “extreme indifference” to human life by failing to provide Data Hancock adequate food and medical care. The couple admitted that they never took Data to any doctor appointments and didn’t participate in any prenatal care before Data was born.

Williams told investigators the baby was fed milk a few times a day, but he did notice the baby was losing weight. He didn’t call the doctor “because that was Amanda’s responsibility.”

According to a probable-cause affidavit, the couple told investigators they did pornography that involved Hancock self-lactating while others paid to watch online.

The two have been charged with murder by abuse and ordered held without bail. The couple have a two-year-old son who was taken into protective custody.
