Texas State Halts Greek Activities After Fraternity Pledge Dies

Texas State Suspends Fraternities Sororities After Pledge Dies

As police investigate the death of a 20-year-old Texas State University student over the weekend, the university has suspended activities of all Greek fraternity and sorority chapters. The police in San Marcos, Tex., where the university is, said at a news conference on Tuesday that alcohol may have been a factor, but that the cause of death would not be confirmed until toxicology results are available, which could take up to two months.

According to the The University Star, the university's student paper, Ellis died in his sleep November 12 following his fraternity's initiation.

Trauth released a statement Tuesday afternoon suspending all fraternity and sorority activities on campus.

The school's vice president for student affairs, Joanne Smith, has been tasked with coming up with recommendations for reinstating the fraternities and sororities "that demonstrate a commitment to the core values of Texas State", Trauth said. Members of Phi Kappa Psi declined a request to comment. He was pronounced dead shortly after emergency crews arrived at the Millennium Apartments complex off-campus and found him unresponsive. Police in San Marcos, Texas, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Austin, say they suspect alcohol played a role in the death. Trauth said the chapters aren't allowed to hold new-member events, chapter meetings, social functions and philanthropic activities.
