    IL - David Bogenberger, 19, NIU frat pledge, dies of alcohol poisoning, 2 Nov 2012


    CHICAGO (AP) — About half of the 22 fraternity members charged with hazing after a pledge died following a night of heavy drinking in Illinois had turned themselves in as of Tuesday night, police said.

    Members of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity were charged after an investigation into the Nov. 2 death of NIU freshman David Bogenberger, 19. He was found unresponsive at the fraternity house in DeKalb, the community about 65 miles west of Chicago that's home to Northern Illinois University. The DeKalb County Coroner's Office said toxicology results found his blood alcohol content was about five times the legal limit for driving.

    I really hope all of the students involved are expelled. This crap needs to stop and if they all just get reprimands from the school, it won't. I understand the deceased teen didn't need to comply, but the whole situation just is wrong. ty

    From May 2015:


    In what authorities called the largest hazing prosecution in the country's history, 22 men were convicted of misdemeanors Friday in the 2012 alcohol-related death of Northern Illinois University freshman and Palatine native David Bogenberger.

    Five former officers of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity -- where the 19-year-old Palatine High School graduate was a pledge -- pleaded guilty to reckless conduct, a Class A misdemeanor, as part of negotiated agreements. James Harvey, 23, of Northfield; Alexander Jandick, 23, of Naperville; Steven Libert, 23, of Naperville; Patrick Merrill, 22, of Boston, Mass.; and Omar Salameh, 24, of Burbank, were sentenced to 24 months' conditional discharge, a type of probation. DeKalb County Judge Thomas Doherty also ordered each of them to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.
