Los Angeles Times - - 9• 30•10 -

A New Jersey col­lege stu­dent has com­mit­ted sui­cide af­ter he was se­cretly filmed in a sex­ual en­counter that was broad­cast on­line, lo­cal me­dia re­ported. The 18year-old Rut­gers Uni­ver­sity stu­dent is be­lieved to have jumped off New York’s Ge­orge Washington Bridge last week, but no body has been found.

Two other Rut­gers stu­dents, Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei, both 18, have been charged with in­va­sion of pri­vacy. They are ac­cused of plac­ing a cam­era in the stu­dent’s dorm room and trans­mit­ting a sex­ual en­counter on the In­ter­net. The New York Daily News re­ported that the en­counter was with an­other man.
