According to IU Police Chief Keith Cash, 19 year old Indiana University student Brian Macken, who was found unresponsive this weekend at the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity house, has died.
Prior to the announcement of Macken’s death, the Indiana University Interfraternity Council had canceled all social events in the Greek Community indefinitely.
The teen was a former member of the fraternity. According to Vice President for Communications Josh Vollmer, the IFC made the move independently of the University.
“The reason this decision was made,” he says, “was because we felt this was out of the best interest of the Greek community, and out of respect for the family who is obviously dealing with a very tragic time right now.”
Meanwhile, the IU Police Department is continuing to investigate the incident. Cash says officers found no signs of drug use at the fraternity, but did discover evidence of drug use in the victim’s dormitory.
