I live in northern New Jersey, not far from where the victim lived (Ridgewood a well off community), and died (apparently jumped off the George Washington Bridge, his car was found nearby). here is a link to an article from the local daily newspaper about this story with many details.
The victim, Tyler Clementi, was a gifted musician (classical music, violn). His family is devastated. His body has yet to be found so no closure there. Apparently his roommate, Dharun Ravi, who had a lot of computer skill but no morals is the primary suspect, along with some apparent help from a woman, Molly W. Wei.
The two fools who did this will be thrown out of Rutgers and if convicted can get up to 5 years in jail, the rest of their lives ruined too as will have a felony conviction, their names on a sex offenders list with it's lifelong penalties. Their families are badly shamed and probably pissed that they did such a terrible criminal act. Would the two who did this obscene video recording like themselves being the taped during sex and put out on the web? I doubt it. There is also the other man in the victims sexual encounter that was recorded, his name yet to be known, but may be facing his own serious issues, I hope he is getting proper counseling
The best hope from this terrible situation is to change laws, on the state and federal level, that allows such material to be placed on the Internet, to apply devastating fines to ruin such businesses and put their operators in jail that accept such videos. I also hope that Rutgers and all other colleged in the coutnry use this situation to make it clear that such behavior is totally wrong and unacceptable. No one should ever be taped in violation of their privacy.
