Tyler Clementi 1992-2010
Tyler Clementi, a shy 18-year-old Rutgers University (New Jersey) freshman with a passion for playing the violin, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge on September 22, 2010. His last words, posted onto his Facebook profile about 10 minutes before he died, were: "Jumping off the gw bridge sorry."
This occurred after a sexual encounter he had with a man in his dorm room was allegedly video streamed over the internet without Clementi's knowledge, by his fellow first-year students Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei, and after a second attempt was made by Ravi to record Clementi's sexual encounters.
Ravi and Wei were charged with invasion of privacy.
