Authorities are investigating the death of a Washington State University student who was found dead at an off-campus house in Pullman, Washington, on Tuesday.
Members of the Alpha Tau Omega called police after finding a 19-year-old male fraternity member unconscious and not breathing, according to the Pullman Police Department. Other students performed CPR, but medics who arrived on scene determined the young man had died.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the unidentified student’s death may have been alcohol related, but the Whitman County Coroner has yet to determine the official cause of death.
The death at Washington State comes just days after a 19-year-old freshman died after leaving a fraternity event Wednesday night at San Diego State University.
Dylan Hernandez was hospitalized after university police received a 911 call regarding a student in need of medical attention at a residence hall early Thursday morning, according to San Diego State President Adela de la Torre.
The first death at Cornell was in 1873 not long after its foundings. Now there is another tragedy.
The Daily Sun said this:
Law enforcement recovered the body of a Cornell freshman from Fall Creek Gorge on Saturday afternoon. The tragedy shocked the campus community, as Cornellians remembered Antonio Tsialas ’23, who was 18, as a “gem of a person.”
A remembrance service for Tsialas will be held Tuesday from 4:30 p.m to 5:30 p.m. in the chapel of Anabel Taylor Hall, followed by a reception in the Founders Room.
The Cornell student had been missing since Thursday night, after he was seen leaving a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity party. He met with his mother on Thursday night for dinner and planned to take his parents, who were in town during First-Year Family Weekend, on a tour of the campus over the next few days. His parents reported him missing when he failed to meet with them on Friday, state troopers said.

Statement from USC: Operations of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at the University of South Carolina have been suspended until at least August 2023, effective November 11.
The suspension is supported by the organization’s national office and follows a university investigation in which evidence of member hazing was uncovered.
Hazing is not tolerated at the University of South Carolina, and those who engage in the practice face disciplinary action.”
The best known hazing death at USC was that of Sigma Nu Pledge L. Barry Ballou. His story with photos is told in Broken Pledges: The Deadly Rite of Hazing . Here is the court case in 1986.
