Family visits bridge where Rutgers student Tyler Clementi committed suicide in 2010

The family of the Rutgers University student who killed himself after his roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing a man has visited the scene of his suicide for the first time.

Tyler Clementi's parents and brother crossed The George Washington Bridge on Sunday to help raise awareness about the dangers of bullying.

Clementi's mother and brother linked arms and walked with members of a group called The Friend Movement who had walked from Chicago to New Jersey in Tyler's memory.

The 18-year-old Clementi killed himself in 2010. His death sparked a national conversation about the treatment of young gays.

Clementi's roommate served less than a month in jail. He is appealing his conviction on invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and other counts.
