Death of Conrad Roy

Conrad Henri Roy III (September 12, 1995 – July 13, 2014) was an American who died by suicide at the age of 18 with encouragement from his long-distance girlfriend, 17-year-old Michelle Carter, via text messages. The case was the subject of a notable investigation and involuntary manslaughter trial in Massachusetts, colloquially known as the "texting suicide case". Commonwealth v. Michelle Carter involved scores of text messages, emails, and phone calls recorded between Carter and Roy in the leadup to the latter's death. Roy had seen numerous mental health professionals, and he insisted that he wanted to die. Michelle and Roy had both been prescribed psychiatric medication. The case raised complex questions pertaining to the nature and limits of criminal responsibility. Judge Moniz inferred that Carter wanted Conrad dead and that her words coerced him to kill himself, a position that has been subject to some criticism. Carter was convicted by the judge of involuntary manslaughter, chiefly on the basis of her final phone call in which she ordered Roy, after he had become scared, to go back inside his truck as it filled with lethal carbon monoxide.

Franklin High School (Massachusetts)

Franklin High School is a public high school located in Franklin, Massachusetts, United States.

Their main sports rival is King Philip Regional High School in neighboring Wrentham, Massachusetts. Franklin High School started in the former town hall which has now been demolished. In 1924 they moved into a new high school which is right now Davis Thayer Elementary, and at the time was one of the best designs for a high school. In 1962 again they built the right now Horace Mann Middle school/ Oak Street Elementary. Shortly after due to the growing population, they built a new high school, which opened in 1971. In 2005, the school was placed on Warning Status for Accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), so a new Franklin High School was constructed on what was once the old high school's athletic fields. It was first open to the public about 2 weeks before the first day of school (September 3, 2014). They demolished the old FHS and the next year completed the athletic fields.

Metacomet

Metacom (1638 – August 12, 1676), also known as Metacomet and by his adopted English name King Philip, was chief to the Wampanoag people and the second son of the sachem Massasoit. He became a chief in 1662 when his brother Wamsutta (or King Alexander) died shortly after the death of their father, Massasoit. Wamsutta's widow Weetamoo (d. 1676), sunksqua of the Pocasset, was Metacom's ally and friend for the rest of her life. Metacom married Weetamoo's younger sister Wootonekanuske. No one knows how many children they had or what happened to them. Wootonekanuske and one of their sons were sold to slavery in the West Indies following the defeat of the Native Americans in what became known as King Philip's War.

Initially Metacom sought to live in harmony with the colonists. As a sachem, he took the lead in much of his tribes' trade with the colonies. He adopted the European name of Philip, and bought his clothes in Boston, Massachusetts.

The colonies continued to expand. To the west, the Iroquois Confederation also was fighting against neighboring tribes in the Beaver Wars, pushing them from the west and encroaching on Metacom's territory. Finally, in 1671, the colonial leaders of the Plymouth Colony forced major concessions from him. Metacom surrendered much of his tribe's armament and ammunition, and agreed that they were subject to English law. The encroachment continued until hostilities broke out in 1675. Metacom led the opponents of the English, with the goal of stopping Puritan expansion.
