Oregon fraternity death at Lake Shasta

Here is the link to a tragedy at Lake Shasta and an excerpt

 

A University of Oregon student was found dead Saturday at a popular campground in Northern California, officials said.

Dylan Pietrs, 21, “died in an incident at Lake Shasta this weekend,” the school said in a statement. According to the college’s student newspaper, the Daily Emerald, a cause of death is not yet clear.

Pietrs reportedly was at the lake, roughly 300 miles south of Eugene where the school is located, with hundreds of other University of Oregon students for an annual event organized by fraternities that was scheduled to be held from Thursday to Sunday this year.

Pietrs was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and was studying business administration.
