Sadly, Mr. Allen was unconscious but alive when taken to Laurens County Hospital. He died of an alcohol overdose. He was a member, not a pledge of Pi Kappa Alpha. The death now is being investigated by police. The fraternity chapter removed photographs of heavy partying, drinking, pledges coated in mud and other questionable pictures.
