Details Emerging After FSU Fraternity Member Found Dead

Police are investigating the death of a Florida State University fraternity pledge at a chapter party.

University president John Thrasher announced the suspension on Monday, three days after the death of Andrew Coffey.

Florida State University president John Thrasher has indefinitely suspended all fraternities and sororities following the death of a fraternity pledge and another student's unrelated drug arrest over the weekend.

Tallahassee Police officials said there are indicators that alcohol may have been a factor but they're awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

On Monday, Garrett John Marcy, a member of Phi Delta Theta, was arrested by university police and charged with the sale and trafficking of cocaine.

Mr. Thrasher said he had reviewed actions taken by other universities before he made a decision to enact a suspension across the Greek system. "There must be a new culture, and our students but be full participants in creating it".

Refugees had hoped Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull would accept a longstanding New Zealand offer to resettle 150 people. Australian actor Russell Crowe says Australia's treatment of refugees held in Papua New Guinea is a "nation's shame".

Mr. Thrasher said Greek life activities would resume after members of fraternities and sororities worked with the university's Division of Student Affairs to develop new measures and new expectations for student behavior.

"Unfortunately, we have got to take steps in a serious manner with our partners and stakeholders and students to make sure it doesn't happen again", Thrasher said. "We've got a serious problem".

The fraternity has been suspended by its national organization pending the conclusion of the investigation. Louisiana State had a one-month suspension and continues to ban alcohol at Greek parties after the hazing death of 18-year old Maxwell Gruver in September. The university also banned alcohol at events with 700 other student organizations outside the Greek system.

"I've communicated with those kinds of groups and let them know that I have zero tolerance for those kinds of activities and that we will bring the hammer down on them if they act inappropriately in those areas", Thrasher told the paper. "If they did end Greek life the atmosphere on campus will go down a lot".

The university has dozens of programs that work with Greek organizations to educate them on the values they are expected to reflect, providing tools and resources to assist student leaders and advisors in effectively managing their organizations. "I hope that it's a short-lived response". "They will have to participate in the solution".
