Stony Brook University Student Dies After Being Taken from Frat Party

Suffolk Police are investigating the death of a Stony Brook University student following a party at an off-campus fraternity house last week. 

The school says the student died at Mather Hospital on April 30, several days after he was taken there from the party. 

The national Alpha Phi Delta fraternity identified the student as sophomore Nicholas Holt, a member of the campus fraternity. It said in a separate statement that Holt was at a party at the house of the local chapter and that it's investigating reports that he had been consuming alcohol the evening of April 24.

The fraternity's statement said it has a longstanding policy that forbids underage drinking, and that it has suspended the Stony Brook chapter as the police investigation continues. 

"The university community deeply mourns this loss, and expresses its heartfelt condolences to the student's family and friends," a statement from Stony Brook University says.
