Fraternity suspends Texas A&M chapter after student’s death

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — The Sigma Nu fraternity has suspended all activities of its Kappa Sigma chapter at Texas A&M University following the death by drug overdose of a member last weekend.

A statement Thursday from the Lexington, Virginia-based fraternity announced the suspension while an investigation into the death of 19-year-old Anton Gridnev of Frisco takes place.

College Station police determined Gridnev died of a drug overdose last Saturday at the fraternity house. Four students have been arrested on drug-related charges.

The executive director of the national organization, Brad Beacham, says Sigma Nu officials are cooperating in the investigation. The fraternity also suspended the membership of the four suspects.

The Texas A&M chapter was founded in 1985.
