Alcohol may have led to FSU fraternity pledge's death, police say

The suspension comes after the death of 20-year-old Pi Kapp pledge Andrew "Trey" Coffey on Thursday night and the arrest of a Phi Delta Theta after a police raid of the fraternity house this morning.

University officials say, in the coming weeks, the Division of Student Affairs will create and implement new measures in collaboration with students and other stakeholder groups.

All chapter operations of FSU's Beta Eta chapter are now suspended, and the members of the chapter have been directed to cooperate fully with all investigative efforts, the national organization said.

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

"They must work with us and demonstrate they fully understand the serious obligation they have to exercise responsible conduct", he said.

The plan will need to be voted on in both the upper and lower houses in Australia's parliament, before coming into force. Over the last month , the Prime Minister of Australia had to deal with major disarray due to a High Court ruling.

The fraternity's Facebook page, Twitter account, and webpage were shut down Friday night, hours after FSU's Greek community met in an emergency meeting. And they're part of the solution.

At Florida State, Andrew Coffey, a pledge at Pi Kappa Phi, died Friday after he was found unresponsive following a party. He was from Pompano Beach.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that officers were collecting alcoholic beverage bottles that were scattered on the home's porch as evidence.

The fraternity's national office suspended the FSU chapter's operations following his death, according to the Sun-Sentinel, quoting Todd Shelton, a spokesman for Pi Kappa Phi. Check back for updates.
