Conrad Roy III, a teen from .Massachusetts, was found dead in his car parked in a supermarket parking lot in Fairhaven, Massachusetts on July 13th 2014. Afterwards, text messages from his girlfriend were discovered on his phone and all of them were of her encouraging him to end his life (read here).
“I could just do it in my driveway. But slight chance I’m found.” he wrote to her on July 9.
“Don’t do it in your driveway? You’ll easily be found,” She responded.
“I think your parents know you’re in a really bad place. I’m not saying they want you to do it but I honestly feel like they can accept it. They know there’s nothing they can do. They’ve tried helping, everyone’s tried. But there’s a point that comes where there isn’t anything anyone can do to save you, not even yourself, and you’ve hit that point and I think your parents know you’ve hit that point. You said your mom saw the suicide thing on your computer and she didn’t say anything. I think she knows it’s on your mind, and she’s prepared for it.”
“You’re so hesitant because you keep overthinking it and pushing it off. You just need to do it Conrad. The more you push it off, the more it will eat at you.”
“You’re ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you be free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.”
“You’re fine it’s gonna be okay. You just gotta do it babe, you can’t think about it.”
“I know I’m overthinking, I’ve been overthinking for a while now.
“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****** told him to get back in Sam,” Michelle sent to one of her friends, Samantha Boardman, after Conrad’s death.
