Michelle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter
The documentary revealed that Michelle, 22, was found responsible for Conrad's death back in June 2017, and in February 2019 and she was subsequently convicted of involuntary manslaughter, which carried out a 15-month jail sentence. At the time, the judge wrote: "After she convinced him to get back into the carbon monoxide filled truck, she did absolutely nothing to help him: she did not call for help or tell him to get out of the truck as she listened to him choke and die."
Conrad took his own life in 2014
At the time, Michelle had messaged Conrad, writing: "You keep pushing it off and say you'll do it but you never do. It's always gonna be that way if you don't take action. I thought you wanted to do this. The time is right and you're ready – just do it babe. You're finally going to be happy in heaven. No more pain. It's okay to be scared and it's normal. I mean, you're about to die."
