Penn State head calls student's death sickening

Penn State head calls student's death sickening

Piazza tried to get up later but fell backward and hit his head on the wooden floor, the report said.

During those hours, things only got worse.

A lengthy grand jury report issued last week described how Piazza, at the fraternity to accept a pledge bid to become a member, was recorded on security camera footage as he appeared to quickly become inebriated and then fall several times over the course of the evening.

Ten of the fraternity members, including those facing the most serious charges, were arraigned on Friday and each released on $100,000 unsecured bail.

At the pledging ceremony, the frat brothers allegedly made Timothy drink four to five alcoholic drinks within two minutes in a "gauntlet" hazing ritual created to get pledges drunk quickly.

He was subsequently found at the bottom of the steps after apparently falling face-first. "Everybody was surrounding him, basically laughing pointing.Right away, I started freaking out.Tim fell, and he's just lying on the couch.If Tim fell, he does not need to be on the couch.he needs to go to the hospital".

Newly-initiated brother Kordel Davis testified that Timothy "looked horrible" and that Timothy's eyes were shut but he was "thrashing and making weird movements on the couch". Davis said fraternity members had picked him up and taken him to an urgent care facility, but no one ever called 911.

One brother told detectives he sent GroupMe messages trying to convince his fellow brothers that Timothy should be hospitalized, only to be told he was being "overdramatic".

Detectives said four of the brothers carried him upstairs. At times, people in the house find him on the floor, but do not call for help, according to the investigation.

His chest was bare, he was breathing heavy and he had blood on his face, according to the presentment. They say surveillance video inside the frat house captured the final moments of Piazza's life as Casey and others tried to revive him.

The brothers' GroupMe conversations in particular "demonstrated a concerted effort by some of the Beta brothers to destroy or withhold evidence of both the alleged hazing as well as the underage consumption of alcohol".

Call an ambulance, you absolute bellend. I said, 'No, I really do know what I'm talking about. "He could have a concussion.'" He said his pleas continued to be disregarded.

Brendan Young, Daniel Casey, Jonah Neuman, Nick Kubera, Michael Bonatucci, Gary Dibileo, Luke Visser and Joe Sala are each charged with involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors and unlawful acts relative to liquor.

Eight Beta Theta Pi fraternity members face charges of involuntary manslaughter; an additional 10 face lesser charges.

The prosecution also alleges the brothers attempted to cover up their involvement in his death by deleting messages in which terse exchanges about what to do flew back and forth.

Piazza died after falling down the stairs at the fraternity house the night of February 2 during a bid acceptance party.

"The details alleged in these finding are heart-wrenching and incomprehensible", Barron has said, adding the details outlined in the grand jury report are "sickening and hard to understand".
