Penn State fraternity suspended after visiting teen dies at off-campus house

New York Daily News 3 weeks ago

A Penn State fraternity was suspended after a 17-year-old boy died inside an off-campus house, allegedly occupied by members of the Chi Phi frat.

The teen victim, identified by the coroner’s office as John Schoenig, was found unresponsive at the residence near the school during a visit to the college town with a group of his friends.

When emergency responders arrived on the scene around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Schoenig, who was not enrolled as a student, was already unresponsive.

He was later pronounced dead at the residence, according to a statement from the university.

While the house is not an official residence for the Chi Phi fraternity, several of its members were present when the deadly incident occurred.

University officials on Tuesday announced the Alpha Delta chapter of Chi Phi has been suspended in wake of the teen’s death. That means all of the group’s privileges have been removed and they may “not participate, attend or organize any student functions, activities or events pending the outcome of the investigation.”

“Penn State offers its deepest sympathies to family and friends of this young man,” the statement reads.

The Cathedral Preparatory School in Eerie in a social media tribute identified Schoenig, who often went by Jack, as a senior and played hockey for the school.

“Pleas e pray for the Prep-Villa community as we mourn the passing of our brother, John ‘Jack’ Schoenig ’20,” the school said. “We ask that you please keep Jack’s family & friends in your prayers during this difficult time.”

The State College Police Department and Penn State’s Office of Student Conduct are both investigating the tragedy and have urged anyone with information to come forward.
