Roy's father, Conrad Roy Jr, said before sentencing: "I can not being to describe the despair I feel over the loss of my son. Best way we can", Lynn Roy tells 48 Hours after hearing Roy's girlfriend, Michelle Carter, may never have to serve jail time for her role in the death.
A MA judge ruled Carter was responsible for Conrad Roy III's death because she had placed him in a situation that led to his suicide in a landmark case that made national headlines.
Bozzi wrote to the judge, "The defense said it was inevitable, that he would take his life eventually with or without her". The family's attorney told Boston 25 News the plan is for the family to memorialize Conrad Roy III.
Roy, who was 18 years old at the time, killed himself by filling his truck with carbon monoxide.
He had long thought of killing himself, the trial heard. However, police said text messages they recovered suggest that by 2014, Carter had exhausted of Roy's idle talk of suicide and wanted him to go through with it.
The couple had met in Florida in 2012 but had only seen each other in person a handful of times.
They communicated mostly through text messages and phone calls. Carter then told him to get back into the auto. She sent him messages reminding him of the pledge to kill himself.
Carter, 20, of Plainville, who had an nearly entirely virtual relationship with Roy, goaded him into killing himself through a series of texts and calls.

"I just don't understand how someone can be free knowing that she deliberately told him to get back in the auto and she gets to sleep in her own bed tonight. I just try to watch over him like I know he'd want me to". "You have to face your fears for what you want". "I think she forced him to kill himself". She wrote: "Hang yourself, jump off a building, stab yourself idk there's a lot of ways".
The American Civil Liberties Union criticized the prosecution's theory that she killed Roy with her words, saying in June that the conviction "exceeds the limits of our criminal laws and violates free speech protections".

Where was her humanity?" asked Roy's father.
