RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A fraternity at Virginia Commonwealth University has suspended operations months after a hazing allegation.
VCU spokesman Mike Porter tells The Richmond Times-Dispatch that VCU police received a report in early October about possible hazing in late September.
He says fraternity members were uncooperative during the investigation, which didn’t find enough evidence to substantiate the allegation or pursue criminal charges. Alpha Kappa Lambda’s national organization told the university in December that the VCU chapter’s charter had been revoked for four years.
The chapter told the newspaper in a Facebook message that it was “kept in the dark” during the investigation. The chapter didn’t immediately respond to questions about the hazing allegation.
The fraternity’s national director, Jeremy Slivinski, says the chapter should be closed by the end of this weekend.
