TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA (NEWS 13) – Florida State University issued an “indefinite interim” suspension of all fraternities and sororities after a student was found dead at a pledge party Friday.

FSU President John Thrasher made the announcement in a news conference Monday.

Andrew Coffey, 20, of Pompano Beach was a member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, living off campus.

Paramedics say they found Coffey unresponsive when they arrived at an off-campus pledge party and were unable to revive him, but it’s not clear yet what happened.

Pi Kappa Phi suspended all chapter operations and told members of the FSU chapter to cooperate with the investigation.

In an unrelated case Monday, Garrett John Marcy, 20, was arrested and charged with cocaine trafficking. Marcy is a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
