Detective Recounts Horror of Reading Texts From Mass. Teen Urging Her Boyfriend to Kill Himself

Her defense argued her statements and texts urging Roy forward as he contemplated suicide were covered by First Amendment free-speech protections. But on Monday, a Massachusetts court rejected the appeal.
