Michigan State University (MSU) and the Pi Alpha Phi national organization have suspended the university’s fraternity chapter after alcohol consumption was suspected to have played a part in the death of 21-year-old Vietnamese American junior Phat Nguyen.
Nguyen, a MSU Broad College of Business student, died off campus early Nov. 20 morning, according to an East Lansing Police Department news release.
The release stated that police responded to a call from the 400 block of Stoddard Avenue where four individuals were found passed out. Nguyen, who was among them, was unresponsive and not breathing.
First responders, police and East Lansing Fire Department (ELFD) pronounced Nguyen dead at the scene by the Ingham County Medical Examiner.
