ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Cornell University says it’s planning reforms to its Greek life system as it investigates last month’s death of a first-year student following an unauthorized fraternity party.
The body of Antonio Tsialas was found in an Ithaca gorge Oct. 26. Authorities say he was last seen two days earlier, when he attended a party where there was alcohol.
Cornell President Martha Pollack says university police have since followed more than 170 leads but still don’t know the circumstances surrounding the Miami, Florida, student’s death.
Tsialas’ parents have come forward with a $10,000 reward for information.
The suspension of the fraternity that had the party was the sixth suspension of a Greek organization at Cornell in 18 months. Pollack says because of the pattern, she’ll announce reforms before the semester ends.
