Pennsylvania authorities are still investigating whether the death of an Asian American pledge into a fraternity can be directly blamed on hazing, reports the Pocono Record.
About 30 members of Pi Delta Psi of Baruch College in New York had rented a cabin in Monroe County.
Three pledges of the Asian American fraternity were blind folded and asked to walk to a goal while others tackled them.
Authorities say Chun Deng, 19, fell backwards, hit his head and would later die.
An autopsy is being conducted to determine if the incident or a pre-existing medical condition caused his death.
“The case is large in scope,” Monroe County First Assistant District Attorney Michael Mancuso said. “The sheer number (of other frat members) involved and the varying degrees of involvement need to be sorted out.”
One of the fraternity members involved in the incident has hired a prominent attorney to represent him.
You can read about that in the Pocono Record.
RE: Still no charges filed in hazing death at Asian American frat: Hang all 30!
There have been several stories published that charges are expected to be filed. But to the best of my knowledge, that has not yet happened. If anyone has heard differently, please let us know.
