Police on Thursday ID’d the body of an 18-year-old Rutgers student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge after being humiliated by a roommate who allegedly streamed him having sex online.

Also, reports surfaced that in the days leading up to his Sept. 22 suicide, Tyler Clementi looked for advice on dealing with the trauma on a gay website’s message board.

“And so I feel like it was ‘look at what a f-g my roommate is,’” he wrote in one post.

And in another, he very soberly questioned his anger: “I’m kinda pissed at him (rightfully so, no?).”

Dharun Ravi, 18, and another student, Molly Wei, 18, were both charged for the stunt and are each facing five years in prison.
