On March 4, Stone Foltz was at an off-campus event at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house at Bowling Green University, according to the Wood County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and shared by Ohio media. Foltz was a pledge and required to attend with other potential members. 

A roommate later found Foltz unresponsive in his nearby apartment. He was taken to the hospital, where he died days later. 

A coroner ruled his cause of the death was the result of a fatal level of alcohol intoxication during a hazing event, according to the prosecuting attorney’s office. 

Foltz blood alcohol content was .35, more than four times the legal driving limit.

The event included “Big Brothers” being assigned to new members. During the event, the new members were told they had to consume an entire bottle of high-content alcohol, according to the Sentinel-Tribune.

Officials say Foltz consumed nearly the entire bottle and then was taken to the apartment by several members, including his Big Brother Jacob Krinn, according to the Sentinel-Tribune.
