Students at Rutgers hold memorial for Tyler Clementi

NEW BRUNSWICK - Students at Rutgers University are mourning the death of Tyler Clementi, a classmate who jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge after he learned that his sexual encounter with a man had been streamed online.

Students set up a memorial this morning near the Brower Commons to honor the university freshman. The brothers of Phi Delta Theta are asking students to wear black and leave flowers in honor of Clementi.

Former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey, who resigned after he announced he was a "gay American," said this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America," he's "filled with great sadness" at the suicide of a Rutgers University student.

Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, and fellow freshman Molly Wei are charged with secretly streaming video of Clementi engaging in a sexual act with a man onto the Internet.

Middlesex County prosecutors say more charges are possible under New Jersey's hate-crimes law.
