New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Thursday called the suicide of gay Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi an “unspeakable tragedy.”

Clementi's body was fished out of the Hudson River on Thursday.

The eighteen-year-old student committed suicide last week after learning that his roommate secretly streamed live video of him having sex with another man onto the Internet. Dharun Ravi and another freshman, Molly Wei, have been charged with invading Clementi's privacy.

“I don't know how those two folks are going to sleep at night,” Christie said.

Moments before he jumped off the George Washington Bridge, Clementi wrote on his Facebook page: “Jumping off the GW bridge sorry.”

Gay rights activists noted the death was the latest in a string of gay teen suicides.

“This is coming on the heels of similar tragedies across the country: Seth Walsh (13) from Tehachapi, California, Billy Lucas (15) from Greensburg, Indiana and Asher Brown (13) from Houston,” the New York-based gay rights group Empire State Pride Agenda said in a statement. “It is difficult to say if this is a trend, or if our society is becoming sensitive to this kind of story that we have heard far too often in the LGBT community.”

Steven Goldstein, chairman of Garden State Equality, New Jersey's largest gay rights advocate, also lamented Clementi's death.

“We are heartbroken over the tragic loss of a young man who, by all accounts, was brilliant, talented and kind,” he said in a statement. “And we are sickened that anyone in our society, such as the students allegedly responsible for making the surreptitious video, might consider destroying others' lives as a sport.”
