FOX NEWS - The aunt of Michelle Carter's victim says the Massachusetts woman sentenced to prison in connection with his suicide “has a damaged moral core.”
Kim Bozzi spoke out on national TV amid reports Roy’s mother had filed a wrongful death suit against Carter.
Lynn Roy, mother of Conrad Roy III, is seeking $4.2 million in lost future wages for her son who was 18 when he died of carbon monoxide poisoning after locking himself in his truck in 2014.
The then-17-year-old Carter initially tried to talk Roy out of killing himself, but later urged him to do it through dozens of text messages. Roy was her boyfriend at the time.
A judge found Carter guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced her Thursday to 15 months in jail. She remains free, pending an appeal.
"I don't think that she helped him kill himself," Bozzi,told ABC News' "20/20" in an interview that aired Friday. "I think she forced him to kill himself. I think she was responsible for his death."
