College Student Dies, Frat Suspended After Alleged Hazing
In a statement released Sunday night, attorney Sean Alto called the death of Stone Foltz, 20, of Delaware, Ohio, “a tragedy.” Alto said the business major's family was “gathering all of the facts leading to his untimely death” and had agreed to donate his organs to others.
The university placed the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity on interim suspension and was working with law enforcement investigating what the fraternity’s parent organization called “an alleged incident of alcohol-related hazing at an off-campus event” that left officials “horrified and outraged.”
Folz was found by roommates or friends after the event late Thursday night and was taken to a hospital.
In an email to students and faculty, university President Rodney Rodgers wrote the school mourned the sophomore's loss and shared in his family's sorrow.
“This tragic incident has certainly impacted our students and community,” the university said on Twitter, adding that officials were meeting with student leaders “to decide the short- and long-term future of fraternity and sorority life” at the school.
“In the days to come, we will also be reviewing all other student organizations,” the university said.
