Arkansas Student Found Dead at Kappa Sigma House

ETA: PLEASE NOTE: A more recent story posted by a Little Rock station indicates that the body was NOT found at a fraternity house, but rather at the student's residence. The police apparently did "follow-up" work at the fraternity house.


Earlier report:

The Associated Press is reporting that Fayetteville, Arkansas police are investigating the death of a student at the Kappa Sigma house. (ETA: See above; location given in the report was apparently not accurate.) Alcohol may have been involved; the story says the young man had taken some medicine and had been drinking beer. So far the young man's name has not been released.

Has anyone noticed that the student deaths (from whatever cause) seem to be moving east? (Except for 1 or 2).

I don't know what else to say at this point.

The first article says he took hydrocodone, which is the narcotic in Vicodin. Vicodin is hydrocodone and acetaminophen (tylenol). When I got that script as a pain reliever after surgery, it was clearly labelled not to drink with it. Bad mix... very sad ending.

Live with Purpose!

I think I've found his obituary in the Arkansas paper (printed today in the online edition) but I don't really feel comfortable posting it here until I find a news article that has released his name. The obit says this gentleman was a current student at U of A and was a member of Kappa Sigma, but states he passed due to "natural causes". If it's not the same gentleman, Kappa Sig has lost 2 brothers in one weekend.

I'll wait to post until I can pull more info.

Student who felt ill found dead in home

FAYETTEVILLE ó Fayetteville police said Sunday they were still investigating the alcohol-related death of a University of Arkansas student Saturday and would release few new details.
The student, whose name wasnít released pending notification of family, was found dead Saturday morning at 527 N. Wilson Ave., a residential neighborhood, Fayetteville police Sgt. Carey Hartsfield said Sunday.
Police received a call at 9:39 a.m. regarding a male student who had been feeling ill. Police said the man had taken medicine containing hydrocodone then drank beer. Hydrocodone is a cough suppressant.
Police said the student was a member of a fraternity on campus, and investigators went to the fraternity to talk to friends who might have information on contacting the studentís family. But he said the fraternity or its activities werenít being linked to the studentís death.
"The only relation there is [to the fraternity] is that heís associated with it," Hartsfield said.
Police Sgt. Dan Curtis told The Associated Press that police did not suspect foul play.
Charles Crowson, manager of media relations at UA, said in a news release Sunday that the college is providing crisis counseling through the student affairs office to those acquainted with the student.
Crowson said the university will "conduct its own evaluation of the matter through the Office of Student Affairs."
Susan Rogers, a UA spokesman, said the university will look at whether the school could have done anything differently to prevent the studentís death. Information for this article was contributed by The Associated Press.

**This is the only newspaper article I could find. Nothing in the U of A paper yet.

While you have to be saddened by the loss of another life, you can't help be thankfull that this isn't another Greek related death.
The above is the opinion of the poster which may or may not be based in known facts and does not necessarily reflect the views of Delta Tau Delta or Greek Chat -- but it might.
