Michelle Carter was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter after the suicide of her friend Roy Conrad. Following the 18-year-old's death, Carter reportedly asked his family to keep part of his ashes.

In an interview with "20/20," Conrad's aunt, Kim Bozzi, says that Carter attended her late friend's funeral and wake. She apparently constantly asked for his personal property. “She wanted to go through his room and take some of his belongings,” Bozzi said, per People. “That’s when things started to get a little weird. Yeah, you don’t do that.”

Bozzi also dismisses the extent of Conrad and Carter's relationship and described her as "just an acqaintance." 

The mother of Conrad is currently suing Carter for $4.2 million in lost and future wages.

 In 2014, Conrad killed himself by carbon monoxide poisoning. Carter, then 17 years old, encouraged her friend to kill himself through dozens of text messages. Last week, she was sentenced to 15 months in jail.
