FSU suspends all fraternities, sororities in wake of student's death

FSU student found dead after off-campus fraternity party

Florida State University indefinitely suspended its fraternities and sororities Monday after the alcohol-related death of a freshman pledge and cocaine charges for another fraternity member. "There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it", Thrasher said in a statement. "Although there are indicators that alcohol may have been a factor in this case, we are waiting for the results of an autopsy, so no cause of death has been determined". "All of our student organizations-Greek organizations and the other recognized student organizations on campus-must step up", Thrasher said Monday. After the February hazing death of 19-year old Timothy Piazza, Penn State suspended fraternities and sororities from holding social activities during the spring semester.

Andrew Coffey, 20, is alleged to have died at the party, which occurred off of the Florida State University campus.

The student, Andrew Coffey, was found unresponsive at about 10:25 a.m.at a home on Buena Vista Drive, Tallahassee police said. "We've got a serious problem". The Democrat reports 22 percent of FSU undergraduates, nearly 7,600 students, belong to a Greek organization during this school year. And they're part of the solution. "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time".

Officers said they are interviewing all known witnesses and processing the evidence collected from the scene, including beer bottles strewn around the property.

Coffey was reportedly a pledge for the Phi Kappa Pi Fraternity. Check back for updates.
