GLOs (USA/Canada) brawling fatalities?

I've been working on the Wikipedia pages for some Fraternities in the Philippines. There are several examples within the last 40 years of members of the fraternities being killed in brawls between chapters of the fraternities. Can anyone think of any cases in the US/Canada (preferably post WWII) where the news headline could reasonably accurately read "MMM brother killed in clash between MMM and TPT"?

Anecdotally, I may have heard that at OU back in the 1960s, there was a fight between some SAE and Phi Kappa Tau after which the SAE house was burned down under suspicious circumstances.

Phil Kappa Tau has never had a chapter at the University of Oklahoma. You may be thinking of some other Phi Kappa ___ fraternity.

I don't think there were any fatalities, but at some point decades ago the Betas at UVa shot flaming arrows at the DU house across the street causing it to catch fire and burn down. The Betas had to give the DU's their house and move off grounds.

I actually found a reference to this (sort of)

'Contrary to UVA legend, there were no "flaming arrows" according to one Prominent Beta Alum, DU simply purchased the property after Beta (unrelatedly) lost its charter in 1972'

More on this in the magazine...

Phi Kappa Sigma. You're right.

That's interesting. The only story I ever heard, from both members of Beta and DU was the flaming arrow story. Urban legend I guess. The DU house did indeed burn down and Beta did lose it's charter and move off grounds. Here's an article from UVa in 2009: https://news.virginia.edu/content/de...house-50-years

Speaking of UVa, when I was in school, I was co-editor of our Greek newsletter. One of the stories my co- found was of a pig roast held by a fraternity in the 1970s. I want to say that it was Pika. Anyhow, one brother insisted that he knew all about pig roasts, but sadly, didn't know to disembowel the pig before cooking. After a day of cooking, it got hot enough that the pig exploded, and hot pig flesh went everywhere, including the (then) Jewish house of Alpha Epsilon Phi. Long story short, not only did the pig roast fundraiser fail, but the fraternity had to pay to rabbinically cleanse the AEPhi house next door as well.

I have tried to google this to see if it indeed happened, but never could. It's a funny story, but I still wonder about my co-editor made it up.

At the University of Illinois, in 1973 or 1974, Kappa Alpha Psi (Beta chapter) had a party at their chapter house, there was a shooting and one member was killed. The chapter was closed down, I do not know if there was a "rival" fraternity involved.
