Rutgers University Student Jumps Off a Bridge after Video Scandal
Tyler Clementi, a freshman student at Rutgers University in New Jersey, died after jumping off George Washington Bridge on the night of September 22, 2010. This was 3 days after an alleged video of him making out with another male student was webcast online by his roommate.
Dharu Ravi was identified as the roommate who allegedly set up a hidden camera in their room and had it webcast online. Another dormmate, a girl named Molly Wei, is also being suspected to have taken part in the secret videotaping. Ravi and Wei have been charged already with invasion of privacy.
Reports say that Tyler Clementi was not open about his sexuality.
