“Michelle Carter: Love, Texts & Death” Explores How Texts Can Have Dire Consequences





New True Crime Special “Michelle Carter: Love, Texts & Death” Explores How Texts Can Have Dire Consequences
The special will be available to stream on discovery+ Tuesday, September 7, and will premiere on ID at 9:00/8:00c.
[via press release from Discovery, Inc.]
NEW TRUE CRIME SPECIAL “MICHELLE CARTER: LOVE, TEXTS & DEATH” EXPLORES HOW TEXTS CAN HAVE DIRE CONSEQUENCES

– Two-Hour Special Streams on discovery+ and Premieres on ID Tuesday, September 7 –

(New York, Ny.) – From the outside, it seemed as though 17-year-old Michelle Carter and 18-year-old Conrad Roy had a modern clandestine romance, mostly communicating online via phone calls and texts while keeping their relationship secret from family and certain friends. But a darker secret was Conrad’s struggle with mental health issues, including depression. He confided in Michelle, and she seemed to be helping him. But Michelle had her own struggles, and no one expected this seemingly innocent relationship to have such a tragic end. What began with Michelle encouraging Conrad to seek help took a disturbing turn, resulting in Conrad’s suicide. When police search for answers, the true relationship between the teens is uncovered, and Michelle Carter finds herself on trial for involuntary manslaughter for the role she may have played in Conrad’s death. MICHELLE CARTER: LOVE, TEXTS & DEATH will be available to stream on discovery+ Tuesday, September 7, and will premiere on ID at 9/8c.

“We’re honored that Conrad Roy’s family trusted us to tell his story by sharing the raw and emotional video diaries he filmed about his struggles with loneliness and mental illness,” said Jason Sarlanis, President, Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “As the world becomes increasingly more digital it’s more important than ever to shed light on the fact that our words can have grave consequences, even online or by text.”

MICHELLE CARTER: LOVE, TEXTS & DEATH delves into the complicated relationship between Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy using an extensive archive of texts and online activity between the two teenagers, including video diaries from Conrad himself that provide a better glimpse into how he was struggling prior to his death. This two-hour special features interviews with those closest to the case, including Conrad’s mother, sister, friends, and law enforcement who worked directly on the case. Each poignant interview sheds light on key events leading up to Conrad’s death, the aftermath of his suicide, and Michelle’s strange behavior following his death. Some wondered if Michelle was seeking the spotlight by so publicly and intensely mourning a boy that few even knew she was dating. It was not until police seized her phone that they discovered startling texts she sent to Conrad and others. Those words would land Michelle at the center of a national controversy as she was charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with Conrad’s death. In this landmark case a court had to decide whether words could do more than hurt. Could they be so criminal that they would lead a troubled young man to his death?

MICHELLE CARTER: LOVE, TEXTS & DEATH is produced for discovery+ by Jupiter Entertainment. For Jupiter Entertainment, David O’Donnell, Patrick Reardon and Harrison Land are Executive Producers. Pamela Deutsch is Executive Producer for discovery+.

About John Walsh

John Walsh is known internationally as a crime fighter, victims’ advocate and Emmy Award-winning host of “America’s Most Wanted,” the reality program that helped law enforcement capture more than 1,200 fugitives and brought home more than 50 missing children. He never sought the role, but fighting for justice has been his mission since July 27, 1981 – the day his 6-year-old son, Adam, was abducted from a Hollywood, Fla. mall near their home. Adam’s remains were found two weeks later. Through their experience, Walsh and his wife Revé, realized that the nation was in desperate need of leadership in the fight to protect children. Out of their pain, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children was created in 1984, after President Ronald Reagan signed the “Missing Children’s Assistance Act.” Walsh has been honored numerous times by many local, state and federal agencies. In addition to being named “Man of the Year” by both the U.S. Marshals Service and the FBI, John was made an honorary U.S. Marshal. He is only one of three people to receive this honor in the organization’s history. Walsh has been the driving force behind major pieces of child protection legislation. This work led to him being honored five times by four presidents. The Walshes had three more children after Adam and John continues to fight for victims’ rights.

About Callahan Walsh

Callahan Walsh is a child advocate for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). At the National Center, Callahan works together with law enforcement, including the U.S. Marshals Service, to further NCMEC’s mission and to help change laws in favor of child victims. He is the son of John and Revé Walsh, who co-founded NCMEC in 1984 after the kidnapping and murder of their first son, Adam Walsh. Following in his parent’s footsteps, Callahan has focused his energy on helping find missing children, reducing child sexual exploitation and preventing child victimization.

About the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

Since 1984, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children(R) has served as the leading private, nonprofit organization helping to find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent future victimization.
