But the detective said it was found pointed directly at Clementi's bed.
Also Wednesday, jurors were read two long text messages sent from Ravi's phone to Clementi's at about the time of his suicide — minutes after his final Facebook status update — "Jumping off the gw bridge, sorry."
The first of them: "I want to explain what happened. Sunday night when you requested to have someone over I didn't realize you wanted the room in private. I went to Mollys room and I was showing her how I set up my computer so I can access it from anywhere. I turned on my camera and saw you in the corner of the screen and I immediately closed it. I felt uncomfortable and guilty of what happened. Obviously I told people what occurred so they could give me advice. Then Tuesday when you requested the room again I wanted to make sure what happened Sunday wouldn't happen again and not to video chat me from 930 to 12. Just in case, I turned my camera away and put my computer to sleep so even if anyone tried it wouldn't work. I wanted to make amends for Sunday night. I'm sorry if you heard something distorted and disturbing but I assure you all my actions were good natured."
Ravi said in the police interview that he sent that note and another after hearing from the resident assistant about Clementi's complaint.
He said he checked his phone throughout the night for a reply, but one never arrived.
Prosecutors are expected to rest their case Thursday. Defense lawyers have not said whether they'll call Ravi — or any other witnesses.
