Conrad Roy III, his friend Michelle Carter and his parents are subjects of Hulu’s new drama The Girl From Plainville.
An 18-year-old teenager named Conrad Roy III from Massachusetts committed suicide in 2014. His family saw him as a smart happy kid who loved his sisters. His mother defined him as athletic, book smart, an instigator in the family. Conrad never got in trouble. He had recently earned his captain’s license and was also accepted at Fitchburg State University.
But little did they know that he was adrift. He was dealing with suicidal tendencies and social anxiety. He had stayed in a psychiatric facility because he had attempted suicide several times.
But, he had kept a secret from his family.
Conrad was communicating with his “girlfriend” Michelle Carter who he met in Florida while visiting family. The Plainville native also suffered from depression and had an eating disorder. Michelle and Conrad were intensely texting and spending time with each other.
On the day of his death, Conrad goes to the beach with his mom and younger sisters. Lynn believed that her son was optimistic but he spends most of his afternoon in the car texting someone. He tells his mom that he was going to see a friend. He drives off in his black pickup truck, the last time his family saw Conrad alive.
