More on the hazing death of Trevor Duffy, ZBT at SUNY Alabany

Sad to note another hazing death.  This one drank 60 ounces of vodka. Horrible tragedy.

 

Excerpt from NBC/Times-Union

“A college sophomore from New York City who died of excessive alcohol consumption drank a 60-ounce bottle of vodka during what college officials said was the hazing of pledges at an unsanctioned fraternity, according to court papers filed in connection to the case.

The documents were filed (according to Times-Union) by two students who were expelled from the University at Albany after Trevor Duffy, 19, of the Bronx died in November, His death came after a night of heavy drinking during a party held by Zeta Beta Tau members at an off-campus home.”
