College suspends frat whose member died from drugs last year

GENESEO, N.Y. (AP) — Officials at a state college in western New York have suspended a fraternity whose house was the scene of a drug-related death last year.

The State University of New York College at Geneseo announced Wednesday that it has temporarily suspended activities of Phi Sigma Xi.

Police in the Livingston County village 27 miles south of Rochester are investigating whether the frat recently supplied alcohol to an underage student who had to be treated at a hospital for suspected alcohol poisoning.

College officials say they’ll decide on the next step after they’ve received the official police report.

Last May, frat member Alexander Davis was found dead on a sofa inside the frat’s off-campus house. A medical examiner determined the 20-year-old sophomore lacrosse player from Victor, near Rochester, died from a combination of cocaine and fentanyl. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
