Parents Of Deceased UConn Student Try To Block Release Of Footage That Shows Her Death

The parents of Jeffny Pally, the University of Connecticut student who died after being run over by a campus fire department vehicle, have asked the judge to block the release of surveillance video that shows their daughter’s death.
Abraham and Shinymol Chemmarappally, Jeffny’s parents, made the request, claiming that the video would “cause the family emotional anguish.” A Hartford Superior Court judge has scheduled a hearing for next Monday. Meanwhile, The Hartford Courant and other news outlets requested for the video to be released.
Pally was killed on the night of October 16, 2016, when she was run over by a university fire department vehicle responding to a false alarm call. Pally’s body was not found by university firefighters until about 30 minutes later. Pally, 19, died from injuries to her head and torso. Pally’s BAC was more than three times the legal limit in the state of Connecticut.
The incident was ruled an accident and the driver of the vehicle was not charged, however, the two students responsible for the false alarm have been charged.
Six members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity at the University of Connecticut were also charged with alcohol-related offenses in relation to Pally’s death. A spokeswoman for the University of Connecticut confirmed the six students are still enrolled at UConn but said federal student privacy law prevents the university from saying whether any of them face discipline by the school.
