They released the 911 call. Tough to listen to. I only got about halfway through and stopped. Seems like the person who called is emotionless at first and then the gravity of the situation hits her. Truly sad.

Absolutely heartbreaking. I was barely able to listen to the entire thing, but my heart aches for the young people in that apartment on that 911 call. I hope they are taking the time they need and getting the support they deserve because I cannot imagine trying to move on with a regular semester after something like that, let alone this hybrid online COVID semester.

A life altering event for all involved. Should this be required listening for all teenagers/young adults?

So of course they're suing the national organization because that's where the money is. They're going to find out that fraternities are legally structured in such a way that makes it very difficult to hold the national organization accountable. They'll find that Pi Kappa Alpha regularly sends consultants to educate and report regarding hazing and that the local organization was able to hide this behavior from the national organization.

They'll find the property itself is probably in an LLC which means that even if there is a judgment, (at least in my State), the best they can do is get a charging order which is an order to pay from the profits of the LLC--and the LLC will continue to reinvest 100% of its income back into the property. Their best bet is to sue the individual fellow students, and honestly, not very many civil attorneys are interested in collecting a judgment against a 21 year old kid. There'll be a swarm of press coverage for awhile, but I don't think there'll be justice.

Kevin, what was the final outcome from the 2012 Pi Kappa Alpha hazing death of Northern Illinois University student David Bogenberger? Was justice served in that instance?

The national organization was dismissed as not liable. A $14 million settlement was reached. 98% of that was paid by the 44 individuals, 22 members, and 22 women who were present, who were named co-defendants. The fraternity chapter itself paid around 2% or by my math, $280,000. The 22 young men who were involved pled to misdemeanors. All this after 6 years of litigation.
