The suspension comes after the death of 20-year-old Pi Kapp pledge Andrew "Trey" Coffey on Thursday night and the arrest of a Phi Delta Theta after a police raid of the fraternity house this morning.

The press release said the university's Division of Student Affairs will create and implement new measures in collaboration with students and other stakeholder groups. The FSU chapter of the fraternity was suspended by its national organization after the death, pending the conclusion of the investigation.

"We've got a serious problem and we've got to deal with it".

Thrasher also instituted a ban on alcohol at all Recognized Student Organization events during the indefinite interim suspension.

The fraternity's Facebook page, Twitter account, and webpage were shut down Friday night, hours after FSU's Greek community met in an emergency meeting.

Coffey, a civil engineering major from Pompano Beach and a Pi Kappa Phi pledge, died after attending an off-campus house party.

University officials say that failure to comply with the terms of the interim suspension could result in immediate disciplinary action. "They will have to participate in the solution", Thrasher said. He died on the scene, police said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends", said Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes in a statement to the Tallahassee Democrat.

On Friday, investigators removed scattered alcohol bottles around the porch as evidence.

Tallahassee Police were called to a home on Buena Vista Drive at about 10:25 a.m. Friday after reports of an unresponsive person.

This is a developing story.
