Detective: Clementi Saved Screenshots of Ravi’s Tweets in Rutgers Webcam Trial

A detective has shown jurors that Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi saved screenshots of his roommate Dharun Ravi’s Twitter postings that said Clementi was seen on a video chat “making out with a dude” and “daring” others to watch.

Tyler Clementi, killed himself in September 2010, a day after he saved the last tweet to his computer drive.

His roommate, Dharun Ravi, is on trial on charges of bias intimidation, invasion of privacy and other crimes. Authorities say he used Twitter to tell others they could watch web streaming Clementi’s encounter with another man.

Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office Investigator Gary Charydczak  showed jurors records from Clementi’s computer.
He said he visited Ravi’s Twitter page 38 times between Sept. 20 and Sept. 22, the day he jumped off the George Washington Bridge.

RAVI ALLEGEDLY DID WEB SEARCHES ON ROOMMATE

An investigator says a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate’s intimate encounters with another man did several Internet searches seeking information on his roommate.

Investigator Gary Charydzcak told jurors on Tuesday that Dharun Ravi did searches for Tyler Clementi on at least five search engines after he learned who his roommate would be.

Twenty-year-old Ravi faces 15 criminal counts, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy.

Testimony is scheduled to resume Wednesday for the ninth day.

Ravi’s roommate, Tyler Clementi, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September 2010, just days after the alleged spying.
