NY Fraternity Suspended Amid Hazing Probe After Student Dies


By Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Buffalo college has suspended a fraternity following the death of a 21-year-old student in a possible hazing incident.

The president of Buffalo State College announced the suspension of Alpha Phi Alpha on Friday following the death Thursday night of Bradley Doyley of Brooklyn.

Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner says the Buffalo police are investigating an allegation of hazing off campus. In the meantime, she says the fraternity has been suspended by both the college and the fraternity’s national governing body.

The governing body, in a statement, confirmed the suspension but said it could not comment on the allegations.

The college, which is part of the State University of New York system, provided no details on the cause of death or type of hazing.
