FSU Student Found Dead In Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity House
A 22-year-old Florida State University student was found dead in his fraternity house Sunday. FSU PD says it received a report about a man lying face down on a bed.
The university has not released the student's name but says his family has been notified. The student was found at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house. A roommate found him lying face down in a bed and called 9-1-1. First responders pronounced the student dead.
An investigation is underway to determine the cause of death. In a press release issued around 5 p.m. Sunday, the school says a preliminary investigation shows no foul play.
The fraternity's national leadership issued a statement Sunday evening.
“Our hearts are filled with sadness as we grieve the tragic loss of our friend and brother, who left this world too soon. We share our deepest condolences with his family and loved ones,” said Brian Warren, Sigma Phi Epsilon CEO. “He was beloved by all who knew him, especially his chapter brothers. We are grateful for the immediate support the Florida State staff and alumni have provided our undergraduate brothers during this time of great personal loss.”
