Texas State University Halts Greek Life After Fraternity Pledge Dies

The 20-year-old sophomore from Humble Texas had attended a party that Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members hosted Sunday night at the apartment

Friends found 20-year-old Matthew Ellis unresponsive at an apartment in San Marcos on Monday afternoon. He was found dead by friends after 11 a.m. on Monday.

The San Marcos Police Department is investigating after a Texas State University student died at the Millennium Apartments.

The death of Matt Ellis, a business sophomore transfer student from Humble, Texas is under investigation. Preliminary findings indicate alcohol may have been a factor in his death, but police are awaiting results of a toxicology test. Ellis was a pledge of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at TSU, but it is unknown if the fraternity held any social events preceding Ellis' death. It is not clear if they are members of the fraternity where Ellis was pledging. EMS personnel were not able to revive him and he was pronounced dead.

Ellis's friends told authorities that Ellis had attended an off-campus social event Sunday with members of his Fraternity.

Ellis was pronounced dead after EMS personnel were unable to revive him. In a statement the Phi Kappa Psi national office said it suspended the Texas State chapter last week

Texas State University suspended all fraternity and sorority activities on Tuesday, a day after the death of a Phi Kappa Psi pledge - the latest in a string of similar episodes on campuses across the country.

The cause of Coffey's death is still undetermined, pending the autopsy, but police believe alcohol may have played a role in his death.

Trauth says the university will conduct a "thorough review of the Greek Affairs system" and propose recommendations for reinstating the chapters that "demonstrate a commitment to the core values" of the university. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the entire TSU student body during this hard time".

Trauth released a statement on Tuesday suspending all activities of Greek fraternities and sororities at the university. "Phi Kappa Psi will continue to work closely with the TXSU administration and law enforcement during their review of this matter, and have advised all members to cooperate fully".
