    BOSTON - The family of a high school student whose girlfriend was convicted of convincing him to commit suicide appeared on the Dr. Oz show Thursday. 

    Conrad’s Roy’s mother, Lynn, and her two daughters appeared on the show Thursday to discuss Conrad’s death and the trial of Michelle Carter. 

    Oz asked Lynn about coping ‘someone who would do something so inhuman.’

    “I believe some people have no soul, no conscience,” Lynn Roy told Dr. Oz on his show Thursday. “I think when I wake up in the morning and I realize he’s not here with me, that’s the most difficult for me.”

    His family said they wished they could have told Conrad how much they cared for him. 

    “My god, you have so much – you have no idea how much you have going for yourself. You have a family that loves you. It’s undescribable how much I love him,” she said when asked what she would tell him. 

    Oz came back to Carter’s trial and asked Lynn Roy what she would say to Michelle. 

    “I would just ask her why, I don’t understand. Maybe give me some reasons why she would have encouraged him and bullied him, because I think the way she acted with him was bullying him,” She said. “I feel worse for her mother than for myself, I know the son I raised, I know the son that I have.” 

    She told Dr. Oz she believed the judge was fair and said the decision likely set a precedent that may develop into a law. 

    “So this won’t happen to another family,” she said. 

    She also told Dr. Oz about the last time she saw Carter and the last thing he said to her. 

    “We walked the beach that day, the last thing he told me was I’m going to a friend’s house. I asked him if he was going to be back for dinner and he said, ‘I don’t think so,’” she said.
