Outed On Net, Gay Student Kills Himself

This June 2010 photo provided by the Ridgewood Patch shows Tyler Clementi, left, hugging a fellow  student  during his 2010 graduation from Ridgewood High School in Ridgewood, N.J. The death of Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman stirred outrage and remorse on campus from classmates who wished they could have stopped the teen from jumping off a bridge on Sept. 22, after a recording of him having a sexual encounter with a man was broadcast online.
