Texas State Suspends Fraternities Sororities After Pledge Dies

Matthew McKinley Ellis, who was pledging to the university's Phi Kappa Psi chapter, was found at the Millennium Apartments, less than two miles from the Central Texas campus, after 11 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say Ellis was a pledge for the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at Texas State.

According to the The University Star, the university's student paper, Ellis died in his sleep November 12 following his fraternity's initiation.
