Inyoung You Wiki, Alexander Urtula Wiki

Inyoung You and Alexander Urtula is a former Boston College student who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly driving her boyfriend to jump to his death from a parking garage, 90 before he was set to receive his diploma.

A former Boston College student has been indicted in connection with the suicide of her boyfriend, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins announced on Monday.

Inyoung You, 21, of South Korea, is facing a charge of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of 22-year-old Alexander Urtula, who was also a student at Boston College.

“The indictment alleges Ms. You’s behavior was wanton and reckless and resulted in overwhelming Mr. Urtula’s will to live,” Rollins said, “and that she created life-threatening conditions for him that she had a legal duty to alleviate.”

Urtula reportedly jumped to his death from the Renaissance parking garage in Roxbury around 8:35 a.m. on May 20, just 90 minutes before he was scheduled to walk across the stage at Boston College’s commencement. His family had traveled from New Jersey to see him graduate.

Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins said prosecutors are prepared to have You extradited from South Korea, where she is currently staying, if she refuses to return to Massachusetts voluntarily

Instead of accepting his diploma in front of his parents and friends, Urtula headed to the Renaissance parking garage in Roxbury at 8.35am and leaped to his death.

Rollins said his girlfriend of 18 months, You, had been tracking his movements through his cellphone that morning and was on the roof of the garage at the time of his suicide.

‘What appeared to be a self-inflicted, horrific tragedy ended up being much more than that,’ said MBTA Transit Police Superintendent Richard Sullivan, who responded to the scene in Roxbury that morning.

A search of Urtula’s phone later revealed that You was ‘physically, verbally and psychologically abusive’ during their relationship, according to the district attorney.

Rollins said the abuse became ‘more powerful and more demeaning’ in the days and hours leading up to Urtula’s death.

She also said that the victim’s friends and family witnessed the way You had been treating him, and that the abuse was well-documented in tens of thousands of text messages and Urtula’s journal entries.

According to Rollins, investigators found that Urtula and You had exchanged some 75,000 texts during the two months before the boyfriend’s death, of which 47,000 had been sent by the girlfriend.

In many of the missives, according to the DA, You made demands and threats of self-harm as a way to manipulate her boyfriend.

The abuse was witnessed by family and classmates of both parties and is documented extensively in text messages and in Urtula’s journal entries, she said.

“Students come from around the world to attend our renowned colleges and universities, eager to learn and experience our vibrant city,” Rollins said. “Their families and loved ones certainly do not expect them to face unending physical and mental abuse.”

In the two months prior to Urtula’s death, prosecutors said the couple exchanged more than 75,000 text messages, 47,000 plus from You alone.

“Many of the messages clearly display the power dynamic in the relationship, wherein Ms. You made demands and threats with the understanding she had complete and total control over Mr. Urtula, both mentally and emotionally. Ms. You used manipulative attempts and threats of self harm to control him,” Rollins said.

“She was aware of his spiraling depression and suicidal thoughts brought on by her abuse, yet she persisted, continuing to encourage him to take his own life,” she added.

Carter and Roy Depression

Carter and Roy both struggled with depression, and Roy had previously tried to kill himself. Their relationship consisted mostly of texting and other electronic communications.

In dozens of text messages revealed during her sensational trial, Carter pushed Roy to end his life and chastised him when he hesitated. As Roy made excuses to put off his plans, her texts became more insistent.
