TALE TO TELL

Tyler Clementi’s Parents Talk To NBC

Jane and Joe Clementi, parents of Tyler Clementi, talk to the media for the first time tonight in a sitdown interview on Rock Center with Brian Williams, tonight at 10pm.

The Clementis reveal Tyler was struggling with a number of personal issues when he took his life in 2010, but claim that the cyber-snooping by roommate Dharun Ravi played a role in his death.

‘Whatever underlying depressions or pains that were going on with [Tyler], that was straw that broke the camel’s back and that was the thing that pushed him to the breaking point,” Tyler’s older brother, James Clementi, told NBC’s Lester Holt.

Rock Center with Brian Williams airs tonight at 10pm EST.
