Defense challenges investigatory bias in Beta Theta Pi case

A preliminary hearing was just held in the Penn State Beta Theta Pi fraternity hazing case. As you may know, a 19-year-old pledge died in 2017 after allegedly undergoing a hazing ritual in which he may have consumed as much as 18 drinks in slightly less than an hour and a half. The young man suffered several falls and died of his injuries.

Preliminary hearing continues in Penn State fraternity death case

Penn State's Beta Theta Pi fraternity and 16 members are challenging the case against them in a preliminary hearing on the February hazing death of a pledge. According to a police detective testifying at the hearing, the 19-year-old pledge drank a dangerous amount of alcohol before falling down a set of basement steps. The detective says the young man's medical condition then went untreated. He died after suffering a skull fracture, spleen damage, and bleeding in the brain and abdomen.
