Frat member told 911: 'We have a friend who's unconscious'

Following a three-month long investigation the Centre County District Attorney announced Friday that Beta Theta Pi and 18 people have been charged in connection to the death of Pennsylvania State University student Timothy Piazza.

The footage, detailed in a grand jury report released Friday, shows Davis becoming "very animated", when he first sees Piazza on the couch.

The cause of death was traumatic brain injury, according to court documents, the result of repeated falls, including one down 15 feet of basement stairs after being forced to drink excessively.

He also had four liters of blood, 80 percent of one's total blood supply, in his abdomen.

No pleas were entered and bail was set at $100,000 ROR (release on your own recognizance), the Centre County district attorney said. "No hazing. No drinking".

When another pledging student tried to compel the others to seek medical help, the brothers slammed him into a wall, claiming they were biology students and knew better.

In a group text message sent just before midnight, one brother wrote, "Tim Piazza might actually be a problem".

Newly-initiated brother Kordel Davis testified that Timothy "looked horrible" and that Timothy's eyes were shut but he was "thrashing and making weird movements on the couch". For example, several brothers discussed deleting or actually deleted GroupMe messages.

"The early findings of that investigation indicated that the behavior of several undergraduate members was in direct contradiction of the International Fraternity's expectations and risk management policies, as well as the International Fraternity's reputation and commitment to character development".

During the night, Piazza tried to get up off the couch, falling backwards onto a wooden floor.

His chest was bare, he was breathing heavy and he had blood on his face, according to the presentment.

Authorities say surveillance video from inside the fraternity house shows Timothy lying unconscious while the fraternity members "shook him, slapped him, attempted to prop up his limp body and poured water on him".

The investigation found some frat members tried to hide what happened.

The brothers' GroupMe conversations in particular "demonstrated a concerted effort by some of the Beta brothers to destroy or withhold evidence of both the alleged hazing as well as the underage consumption of alcohol".

At around 10 a.m., the brothers found him down there.

"Also the guys taking care of him didn't call an ambulance right away, so they could get in trouble for negligence. I felt kind of useless and had no say in the situation".

And you thought that time you woke up at uni with a dick drawn on your face was bad.

"You can't blame yourself", an unidentified person told him.

"This is the result of a feeling of entitlement, flagrant disobedience of the law and disregard for moral values that was then exacerbated by egregious acts of self-preservation", he said.

"All indicators suggested Beta Theta Phi was a model fraternity - the house, privately-owned and situated like all other fraternity houses on private property, was attractive, the subject of a multi-million dollar renovation; both the Beta alumni and the national organization provided strict rules of behavior; and, the brothers had a no alcohol policy which stated that anyone caught drinking would be expelled", Barron said.
