More details coming out about the death of Arizona freshman Michael Evan Anderson

Here is an except from Arizona Central

Phi Gamma Delta, better known as FIJI, received word Monday that the fraternity is no longer recognized by the university. The fraternity had been on interim suspension since July while university officials investigated numerous allegations, including claims that members withheld information from police after the death of a fraternity member.

A loss of recognition means the fraternity can’t hold events or recruit on campus.

 

Fraternity member Michael Evan Anderson died in April after he fell from a 20-foot metal cooling tower on the roof of a residence hall at the Tucson campus.

Anderson and another student scaled the exterior wall of the three-story building to get to the roof. Then they tried to climb the tower.
