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

GRANTS PASS, OR – Stephen 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.”
One reason why the infant may have went hungry was because Hancock’s breast milk was being sprayed out of her nips for the enjoyment of paying customers.…

DETROIT, MI – Tewana Sullivan has been ordered to stand trial for beating her friend to death with a crock pot during an argument over politics.
Last October, 50-year-old Tewana Sullivan was visiting her friend, 66-year-old Cheryl Livy, at the McNamara Towers senior housing complex when the two got into an argument over politics.
According to defense attorney John McWilliams, the two women were arguing over “presidential politics” and the controversy “between Democrats and Republicans.”
The argument got so heated that Sullivan allegedly picked up a crock pot beat the ever-living crap out of Livy with it until the crock pot busted. When police arrived at the apartment, they found Livy barely breathing with the cord of the crock pot wrapped around her neck.
At Sullivan’s preliminary hearing on Thursday, officer Thomas Blauvelt testified that there was “blood all over the walls, all over the floor, all over the victim.” Officer Michael Lewallen testified Sullivan was still at the scene when they arrived.
