San Diego State University suspended 14 fraternities after the death of a 19-year-old freshman, CBS News reported Tuesday. University officials say 19-year-old Dylan Hernandez died following frat party last week.
The cause of Hernadez’s death is currently unknown, but there is evidence that a fraternity may have been engaged in “possible misconduct”. Several students at the party stated Hernandez had been drinking heavily at the party.
SDSU did not reveal the name of the frat that hosted the party Hernandez attended, but he was pledging to one of the suspended fraternities, Phi Gamma Delta. According to the school’s student newspaper, the chapter was placed on probation in 2017 after being “found in violation of regulations pertaining to alcohol at off-campus fraternity events.”
A GoFundMe page to raise money was created by friends and family.
CBS News says the San Diego Police Department is not involved in the investigation.
