  • FSU student found dead after off-campus fraternity party

Florida police are investigating the Tallahassee chapter of a fraternity after a pledge was found dead on Friday morning after a party, as reported by Fox News.

"I want to send a serious message, I really do". "Unfortunately we've got to take steps with our students, to make sure this never happens again".

Thrasher said the suspension of all Greek life activities is effective immediately.

Tallahassee, Florida police said Pi Kappa Phi pledge Andrew Coffey, 20, died at an off-campus chapter party on Friday, Nov. 3.

Coffey graduated from Pompano Beach High School in 2015.

Hurricane candles lined the staircase up to the top and each guest took a name card with their name written in black calligraphy. At the end of the 30 minute ceremony, everyone walked back down the stairs and to a reception at the restaurant on the property.

Thrasher said the pause was necessary to "review and reflect on the loss of a young life", according to a press release. "There must be a new culture for our students and they must participate in that culture". "They must work with us and demonstrate they fully understand the serious obligation they have to exercise responsible conduct".

President Thrasher announced on Monday an "Indefinite interim suspension on all fraternities and sororities at FSU" which includes new member events, chapter meetings, tailgates, socials, philanthropies, retreats, IM games, and market Wednesday.

They will be allowed to remain as residents in their fraternity or sorority house and will have meal service.

During the suspension, President Thrasher also banned alcohol at all "Recognized Student Organization" events.

In a separate and unrelated case, fraternity member, Garret Marcy of Phi Delta Theta was charged with selling drugs. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.
