KU's Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter could face penalties in student's death

LAWRENCE | The Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter at the University of Kansas could face penalties in the death of a 19-year-old member at the fraternity house on campus last weekend.

The fraternity's national and local organizations are investigating the death of Jason Wren, of Littleton, Colo. A spokesman for the fraternity's national office on Wednesday declined to say how the fraternity could be punished.

Lawrence police say Wren was found dead at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday in his bed at the fraternity house.

Police say toxicology test results are not yet available and they are not discussing what may have caused Wren's death. But his father, Jay Wren, says excessive drinking killed his son.

Wren's death is also being investigated by the owners of the fraternity's property, Kansas Alpha House Corp., a group of about eight alumni from the KU chapter.
