Are pharmaceuticals to blame for the tragic suicide of Conrad Roy III, an 18-year-old from Massachusetts whose case gained worldwide notoriety after it was revealed that his supposed friend provoked him to take his own life? A lawyer in the case is now arguing yes, noting that both teens had been taking prescription antidepressants at the time when the tragedy occurred.

The highest court in Massachusetts has already decided that Michelle Carter, Conrad’s perpetrator, should face charges of involuntary manslaughter for her role in Roy’s death. Text messages between the two show that Carter egged Roy on, encouraging him to “just do it.” At times when Roy was hesitant in following through, Carter apparently badgered him, offering up ideas on what to try if carbon monoxide poisoning failed to get the job done.

“You always say you’re gonna do it, but you never do,” Carter reportedly wrote in a text to Roy, advising him to “try the bag or hanging” if asphyxiation with chemical poison didn’t work. “I just want to make sure tonight is the real thing.”

Psychiatric drugs made Carter insane, defense claims
