NEW YORK (AP) A body found in the Hudson River off New York City has been identified as that of a Rutgers University student whose gay sexual encounter was allegedly secretly streamed online.
The New York City medical examiner's office said Thursday that 18-year-old Tyler Clementi committed suicide. Spokeswoman Grace Burgess says he drowned and had impact injuries on his torso.
A family lawyer had already said Clementi jumped off the George Washington Bridge, but officials at the time had not identified the body.
Clementi's freshman roommate at New Jersey's Rutgers University, Dharun Ravi, and another freshman, Molly Wei, have been charged with invading the teen's privacy.
Prosecutors say they used a webcam to surreptitiously transmit a live image of Clementi having sex with a man Sept. 19.
