Student Was At Banned Frat’s Party Before Fall

KSAL StaffApril 3, 2014

Authorities say an Arizona State University student who died after falling from the 10th floor of a Tempe apartment building had earlier attended an off-campus party sponsored by a banned fraternity.

Tempe police still are investigating the death early Sunday of 18-year-old Naomi McClendon.

Investigators believe the Kansas native was intoxicated when she was taken to the high-rise apartment complex. They say it appears she walked on to the balcony, lost her balance and plunged to her death.

Police say the party sponsored by Alpha Epsilon Pi encouraged binge drinking because those who attended paid a $30 fee for unlimited drinking.

Officers raided the party, shut it down and issued seven alcohol citations but McClendon already had left.

Police say Alpha Epsilon Pi isn’t officially recognized by ASU after past sanctions.

McClendon was last year’s student body president at Manhattan High School, where her father directs the orchestras and her mother teaches language arts.
