STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (CBSNewYork) — Police are investigating what caused a Pennsylvania State University student from New Jersey to die after falling at a fraternity house.
Timothy Piazza, a 19-year-old sophomore who was studying engineering, was injured at the Beta Theta Pi frat house last week. He died in the hospital two days later.
State College police Lt. Keith Robb said an ambulance responded to the fraternity house Friday morning, WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported.
State College police say there were 12 hours in between the time emergency responders found Piazza unconscious and the time of his injury at the frat party.
“They were told he had been at a party there the night before and had fallen down some basement steps around 11 p.m. the following night. That would have been Feb. 2,” Lt. Robb said. “I was notified by the Dauphin County coroner on Saturday morning that Mr. Piazza was pronounced dead.”
Piazza, from Flemington, New Jersey, was a graduate of Hunterdon Central Regional High School and an AP student who played football, ran track and was a peer mentor.
